June poetry challenge- A “Naani”

Rebecca is our host for monthly poetry challenge.

My body once supple
Now changed to brittle
Bending is now difficult
Or walking, getting up

Syllable count: 24

  1. Very relatable!! On our walk this morning we met a gent who had surgery and pins in his back… No more golfing for him he said. Just old bones that need support. I haven’t gotten there yet. But I do take meds to strengthen my ‘old’ bones!! 🙂
