FALLING ! ANGELA & BRIAN ~ A REPISTART* SONNET



 

NEVER BE TOO PROUD ~ TO USE A ZIMMER OR A STICK !  

 

FALLING ~ In Love again !

FALLING ~ In a Hole

FALLING ~ Headfirst down a Drain 

FALLING ~ Off a Dancing Pole !

 

FALLING Rain ~ can make you wet

FALLING Sprawling ~ breaks your Leg

FALLING Horses ~ need a Vet

FALLING ~ breaks an EGG !

 

FALLING ~ Off a Roof can KILL

FALLING ~ Flummoxed ~ Falling

FALLING ~ Just like Jack & Jill

FALLING ~ Left them wailing !

 

FALLING UP  &  FALLING DOWN

FALLING ?  Watch your step in TOWN !

 

Thanks for visiting ~ comment s welcome ~ Love A & B  🧡🧡🧡

 

*IN A UNISTART POEM each line begins with the SAME WORD 

If the Poem is left centered it gives it a very elegant look 

The FORM of a Poem is just as important as its function ! 

Many of my CLIENTS for PHYSIOTHERAPY  is the result of

a FALL !  Especially if they break a limb : They need Physio

after the Plaster is removed to regain Limb Mobility ! 

Over 50's should take more care because their bones are

more brittle & broken HIP can leave a permanent LIMP.

Watch where you walk : You could end up on my Couch !

I (BRIAN) have to be very careful  on Field Courses ! Students

dont like to use a STICK !  When investigating Coastal Erosion

the ground  can be very rough & unstable. The same is true

of Geology / Geography Field Trips in Snowdonia & The Lakes.

We are all qualified in Mountain Leadership & First Aid ! 

PRIDE comes before a FALL so in Winter and on rough ground

please use a ZIMMER or a STICK !

FALLING IN LOVE : has its own set of consequences !

    A fine write B&A. Oohh good, a repistart! Dunno what it is, mind ya! Too early in the morning here, to get brain going.

    • ANGELA & BRIAN

      HI UNCLE STEVE : Pleased you enjoyed it ! Thanks for sending |Brian the picture of yourself (& Zimmer !) outside the cake shop !! We like to introduce new forms of Poetry ! The POEM is about the dangers of FALLING for the over 50s. I used the PEBBLE BACKGROUND because BEACHES are lethal !
      BLESSINGS and a fall-free week !
      ANGELA & BRAIN 🧡🧡🧡🧡

      Yep, it's me in the pic. Doh! But people get called dinosaurs these days, for example, simply, if not using e-mail!
      Another danger is holding one's breath for 24 hours. I tried it once. Didn't feel well afterwards! Eh?!

      • ANGELA & BRIAN

        WELL UNCLE STEVE : Better SAFE than SORRY and the ZIMMER really gives yiou some OOMPH !
        You are on our PRAYER LIST !
        Blessings Abundant
        Love A & B 🧡🧡🧡🧡

        • orchidee

          I realise it's best safe than sorry. You may reply: 'I know you would understand, being very old yourself!' (oohh).

          A nice write, and an even nicer message. My Grandmother uses a roller with for legs. Two with wheels and two with regular legs. Not sure what it's really called? Oh well, she didn't like using it at first but we kept bugging her about it. Needless to say they're inseparable now.
          Best regards you two!

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            THANKS NICHOLAS : Pleased your Gran is using a ROLLER : Rollin an Rockin ! This is our experience too : RELUCTANCE @ first : then INSEPARABLE ! A GERMAN firm called ZIMMER started to manufacture & export walking frames (with four legs for stability). In the UK we have always called such walking aids ZIMMERS ! Thanks for your comment.
            Blessings & Joy : A & B 🧡🧡

            Repistarts and unistarts - you're certainly bringing some new words and descriptions into the repertoire - great write.

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              THANKS UNCLE MIKE ~ I always find Poems in which each line begins with the same word spatially attractive ! It also reinforces the SUBJECT if it is the same as the title ! I have heard such poems descibed as REPISTART (repeat~start) or UNISTART (singleword~start). Pleased you enjoyed the Presentation !
              Blessings & Friendship

                Thanks for your comments "OUT" ! At College I am involved in a Silver Surfers Club. Many over 70's never used Computers at Work and want to be computer literate for a variety of obvious reasons. One CAN DO SO MUCH ~ ON LINE. We also have a Seniors Recreation Club (60+) with Lectures & Quizes (for the mind) and Line Dancing etc for the body !
                Our SENIORS want to stay in their own Homes as long as possible ! So they need advice on Diets ~ Exercise ~ Safety in the Home ~ Suitable furniture & Clothing. For outside ~ Suitable Footwear ~ Sticks & Strollers ~ Buggies & Automatic Cars etc. Its not about living forever ~ BUT ~ having Independence & Quality of Life while one is still alive !
                Angelas profession is as a PHYSIOTHERAPIST ! So with all her Clients she is restoring MOBILITY & DEXTERITY (after surgery) enabling People to live independently with QUALITY of LIFE ~ OK
                Thanks again for your observations
                Yours BRIAN & ANGELA !

                  Hello Angela and Brian.

                  A good write.

                  Some people love the sensation of falling itself.

                  Keep writing FineB.

                • Maxine Smith

                  Ooooh I really liked this little piece or art you two have created.
                  Love how creative you two can be, great read.

                • Christina8

                  Very cute read!! My mind immediately went to "falling in love". Enjoyed.

                • Goldfinch60

                  Joyce uses a zimmer frame, we tried one with wheels one but she couldn't steer it safely.
                  Good Repistart.
