The Rocking Chair
Tonight's lavender sky and golden hues
of speckled, dancing light have lured me -
find me comforted within curved back
and double scooped seat
as wooden floorboards hypnotize,
rhythmically soothe -
and I, wrapped within knitted afghan,
cradled in memories and fanciful thoughts,
sigh. I could sit here forever.
