No one is sitting in the old chair anymore. The kids grew up and Mom and Dad passed on. The old chair sits waiting for someone to come back and sit again. It wants to listen to the stories that were told while rocking back and forth in the cool breeze on a hot summer's night. It misses the clicking on the knitting needles and the reading of a story to a small child with a toothache. It misses being able to comfort a woman as she sits in it crying because she is afraid of what the winter will bring if they can't afford to buy the children boots again this year. Oh the stories it could tell about the people it had rocked.
The wind blows and it rocks... but no one hears it. It waits for the day when someone will sit again and enjoy the steady rhythm of its rockers moving back and forth and back and forth.
