Waiting and Wondering

The slipper beneath the bed

Is empty,

Alone,

And seemingly without purpose.

It is lifeless,

Motionless,

And cold.

Morning breaks.

There seems to be movement nearby.

Sure enough . . .

Now the slipper is no longer empty,

Is no longer motionless,

And has purpose.

Did it not have purpose all along?
