I agree with Jim, and it reminds me of "The Nightingales":

My shoes as I lean
unlacing them
stand out upon
flat worsted flowers.

Nimbly the shadows
of my fingers play
over shoes and flowers.

from Sour Grapes, 1921.

I really love those two lines about the laces. I haven't done that for years and years, brings back memories.

A really nice touch of wabi.

all my best,
