“Why Not Go Out On A Limb…
…That’s Where The Fruit Is” according to Mark Twain, and, he may very well have the right idea. Another good quote from Sara at MumTurnedMom as our prompt for this week.
However as I’ve only just had my second session of physio to help with my vertigo, this brought the subject of balance to my mind, rather than ambition as I believe it was intended.
I just get a mental picture of me reaching just a twig too far to obtain that shiny apple and toppling to the floor!
So, it may be late as the extra exercise also means extra vestibular migraine, but, here’s a poem for the week 🙂 You can find more poetry and prose over at Verily Victoria Vocalises.
Stretching, on tiptoes,
Will I fall? Goodness knows!
Walking, on a tightrope,
No thanks, there’s no hope!
Climbing, flights of stairs,
That I used to run up in pairs!
Moving, at a slower pace,
Never far from a safe place!
Driving, mostly in daylight,
Night-time makes my tired eyes fight!
Reaching, my tether’s end,
Vertigo driving me round the bend!
