Waiting and Wondering

The slipper beneath the bed

Is empty,


And seemingly without purpose.

It is lifeless,


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?
