The Rocking of Gentle Nothings

Rocking Chair
by Sujatha Warrier

Whiffs of air
whisper sweet nothings,
Life gently rocks in its chair,
A soft heave backward
reclining
to browse the distant skies,
A smooth lunge forward
dreaming
into the infinite horizon,
A sharp upturn
unawares
And the world is askew,
flipped right upside down.

I am a dreamer, as well as a doer, who lives in the North Georgia mountains. I started my publishing journey August of 2013, have had moderate success, but my utmost passion is my "daytime" job, which is working with adults who are constantly striving to better their lives as they obtain the GED credential.
