Word-of-Day-Challenge-Stumble

~~~~~

stumble

trip or momentarily lose one’s balance;
almost fall.

In late July I found this piece of machinery.

Part of an old stone crusher.

Gingerly following my guide up through the wet spots,

and there were plenty, I found myself standing

on the slope just above my signature in his photo.

My right foot slipped a tad,

my right knee buckle (in sympathy)

and before I knew it I was falling.

Thte incident to only a few seconds

before I was on the ground

beside the concrete block with a few bruises

and a very bruised ego.

Probably not really a ‘stumble’.

More like a stumble without the ‘s’.
