6 Ways of Looking at a Chair

I
Emptiness of someone long gone
From this life
Sits the empty chair.

II
Crowds loud in and angry
They rage; pick up chair
Hurtle with great force
For famine in the land.

III
Hours tick by one to another
Restless movement from sitting
Rump is sore on chair
Waiting to see a doctor soon.

IV
Small child see the chair near
Blanket drapes upon it’s shoulder
Camp inside is a made shift tent
For the weather is cold outside.

V
Four legs like an animal
But still as a statue
No sound except scraping
The chair sliding across wooden floor.

VI
Worn old with age I have become
Alone in thought silent to myself
Worn throughout life the faded fabric;
The brokenness has become
The chair has seen many ages gone by.
