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

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.

Questions & Answers

Question: Can chairs relieve your dormant pain inside your heart?

Answer: 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.

Kajari Guha on May 13, 2020:

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 .

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on September 20, 2019:

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.

Shaloo Walia from India on September 19, 2019:

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.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on May 30, 2019:

Thank You Venkatachari Ji, for reading and appreciating the hub. Good to hear from you.

Yes, the chairs have an important role in our everyday life. Glad you liked it.

Thank You.

Venkatachari M from Hyderabad, India on May 30, 2019:

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!

Thank you FlourishAnyway, for sharing your thoughts!

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

Thanks for your valuable comments!

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on January 30, 2018:

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!

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on January 29, 2018:

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!

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on January 29, 2018:

I like your poetic tribute to the chair. Now, I'll be sure to say thanks to mine. Quite original and interesting.

manatita44 from london on January 29, 2018:

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!!

FlourishAnyway from USA on January 29, 2018:

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.

Mary Wickison from Brazil on January 29, 2018:

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.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on January 29, 2018:

I like how you express yourself in poetry with regard to the humble chair or bench. Nicely done!

Hari Prasad S from Bangalore on January 29, 2018:

Cool writing. :-)

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

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

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on January 29, 2018:

I love my chairs. And I love this tribute to them.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on January 29, 2018:

I love your creativity! Writers see a poem or a story in the most mundane of things. Well done!

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on January 29, 2018:

I would feel comfortable on the floor. Chairs are useful and this poem says so much about it. Lovely write here and I am glad I stopped by here.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on January 29, 2018:

Thank you Harish Ji, for reading and appreciating the poem! Glad you liked it.

Thanks for your suggestions. I was also thinking of changing it and I did it.

Thanks again and it’s a pleasure to read your comments!

Harish Mamgain from New Delhi , India on January 29, 2018:

So affable words expressed in gratitude to the lovely chair ! Love reading the poem. One humble request : if you replace abbreviation 'n' by ' and', it would look more beautiful to this gem. Thanks for sharing the hub , Chitrangda Sharan.
