Contemplating Patience

Sunday Writing Prompt 242

rocking chair

 

A second hand rocking chair

alone in the corner

 

keeper of secrets

collector of memories

 

a safe place to retreat

from the madness within

 

Its curved arms warped by time

welcome those who hunger for comfort

 

Its curved rockers sway without sound

boundless in soothing repose

 

and when the urge to follow despair beckons

and courage in the face of those winds of change wanes

 

the slightly cracked seat waits

inviting the weary to rest

 

for there is no better place to slow the sands of time

and contemplate the hidden meaning of patience
