Gliding Rocker     October 10, 2014    


gliding rocker

three abreast

found by students

brought to rest

where ecology is taught


shadowing trees

stir my childhood memories

lazy reading days

stretched across scratchy pillows

one toe dangling pushing

creaking metal to and fro


how savory wafting fragrance

grandma’s biscuits and honeysuckle

still my mouth waters so

gliding rocker

brings memories decades old
