A Tribute To The Chair—My Poem

All through the day, and night,

You are always there in sight,


Standing firmly at your place,

With never ending grace,


To provide soothe and comfort,

Without showing any effort,


To relax the tired legs and feet,

And it’s a complete treat,


Many times on a busy day,

To feel reassured, you are there.


The humble chair listens,

The many tales that’s shared,


By the people who seat there,

Men or women, young or old,


The chair doesn’t discriminate,

Between rich or poor,


People confide on the seat,

Thinking, no one could hear,


But the modest chair listens,

As well as hides their fears,


And handles them with care,

Thank the chair, for always being there.

.

The modest chair, provides us relaxation mentally as well as physically

Can you imagine a World without the chairs?

How easily, do we overlook the importance of our seating place?
Whether it‘s your living room sofa, your dining chair, your study chair, the easy armchair, where you love to sit cozily.
And not to forget, that big chair at your nearby park, or garden.
How often in a single day, we take that seat, to relax, to ponder, to study, to think, and so on.
Can you imagine a World, without any chairs?
What will happen to the tired, and the exhausted men, and women, old, and young, rich, or poor?

We will be left with tired legs and feet.
Yes, the humble chair does not discriminate between rich and poor.

It provides rest to everyone, who takes the seat.

And, it relaxes us physically, as well as mentally.

Chitrangada Sharan

How many times during a day, do you take a seat, to relax?

Questions & Answers

  • Can chairs relieve your dormant pain inside your heart?

    I believe, that we have to help ourselves, to relieve our hurt or pain. It needs a complete change in our thinking and attitude. One must take the life, as it happens. Pleasure and pain are part of life. No one can say, that I have never felt any pain. One has to learn to deal with it.

    When you take rest on a chair, with a calm and peaceful mind, l think it helps. Letting go, forgiving people, who caused you pain, forgetting the unpleasant happenings in your life, will all lead to peace and happiness.

      Thank you Kajari Ji, for your insightful comments.

      It’s important to control our minds, before it controls us. Looking more towards the positives in life, helps to calm our minds. And, this is important for our mental health.

      Thank you for your kind visit and appreciation of the theme of the poem.

      To me it seems the chair has invigorated the dying amber of our souls. It has opened our eyes towards the petty things of our lives.

      Thanks a lot to inspire all by sharing the poem and the write-up .

      You are right, Shaloo. We have the tendency to take somethings and even some relationships, for granted. But, when the same is not around, we realise their importance in our lives.

      Thank you for reading and commenting on this poem.

      We take some things for granted and fail to notice their importance. You made me reflect on the little things that make a big difference to our lives.

      A very nice tribute to that humble chair. Truly, the chair is a nice companion to everybody in their life. Especially those in the parks and at bus stops or railway stations. They do not discriminate among rich or poor and serve everybody with love and care.

      How thoughtful. For me there is nothing like curling up in a comfy chair with a good absorbing book - and of course I sit on a chair to write!

      How beautiful to have your cat around, while writing. And you are right, we do have a favourite chair in our homes.

      Thank you Mary Wickison, for sharing your thoughts!

      Yes, we do not even realise, how much we are dependent on our chairs. Perhaps when we remove them all from our rooms, then we begin to wonder, how much we need them.

      Thank you for the visit and comments!

      I love the idea of a chair hiding fears and handling them with care. I'll think about that when I next sit in my favourite chair!

      Nice idea, Chitrangadaji. I have some Odes like that and a few Salutations too. I have a very funny one to my bath soap and one to 'pooh (toilet stuff)

      Anyway, very cute poem and so good of you to highlight the values of the chair. Nicely done!!

      Neat perspective. I often take a rest with a cat nearby and sometimes on my lap. I wouldn’t want a world without either chairs or cats. My favorite chair is an oversized office chair where I write from. One of my cats climbs on the back and oversees my computer work.

      I don't think many of us would opt for a chairless world. Many times throughout the day, I opt for a rest and take a seat. We hardly ever use our sofas, just chairs.

      Cool writing. :-)

      If somebody ask me who is most supportive while it's rocking,

      my answer would be, my rocking chair. ;-)
