Stumble

Stumble

A Poem by Corset

I am always...
stepping over things

baby gates, laundry baskets

your words into dial tone
their messy cardiac mass

A friend said;
"If something bites you
or gives you pain"

"Lay it gently down
again

Then,  move on"

I am always stepping
over things...

Things that fall
items dropped or laid to rest
A sunrise, a sun set

everyday,
something else to stumble on.

I love the way your message describes a garden variety klutz, or it could be the strewn path of a bumpy life (like mine). I love the way you describe this like you could mean it in a number of ways. After my neck injury five years ago, I cannot pick my feet up very far so I have to be careful not to stumble! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I am so sorry to hear you were injured, and I appreciate your comments on this piece, I stumble into.. read more
it seems as we try to skip lightly and gracefully through each day, someone trudging before us, has laid a set of cunningly concealed, precarious and oft perilous booby traps along our path.... at least you are stepping over many of those things whereas many falter or get well and truly stuck on the way.... a great write Corset...... best regards.. Neville

Oh' yes indeed... all of them.. or at least quite a few.. N
This is a lovely musing, of the sometimes mundane. You seem to balance it in the beauty of words.

Thank you, again, I appreciate your visits.
I agree. Especially the sunrise and sunsets. I'm always involuntarily doing/attempting things I'm not good at. I think there's something in the "stumbling" aspect of lives that shapes us, matures us, and hopefully, inevitably gives us...balance. C you've given this poem a nice balance.

"baby gates, laundry baskets

I think I stumble more over the mentality of things than I do the tangible things, if that makes sense. I really love the everyday simplicity of this one.

That makes complete sense, Thank you Kelly!
this is so smart. I think many people can relate to feeling like an oaf, tripping over life's obstacles.

Thank you, where this is concerned I'm a huge klutz :D
I love your writing style, because you capture the everyday simple things of our daily lives.

And that is the beauty of poetry: each poet's perspective is unique like DNA.

WELL DONE

We all stumble in life and then have to move forward again. There are many pitfalls in life that we have to climb out of but oh the learning we do in the process. We may not see it at the time but upon rising we take note. Love the imagery in this piece the baskets and the sunset.

drifting on the stream of a perceived reality
stumbles always occur when we are thinking ahead of ourselves.
