Watching Great Aunt Stelly Crocheting While In Her Rocking Chair

Updated on September 26, 2017

Missing Link is originally from rural Ohio. He currently lives in Hillsboro, OR. with his Wife and two Sons.

I wrote this many years ago:

She's sitting quietly in her rocking chair;

crocheting patiently by the window.

All the kids have long moved away.

Only the memories remain.

I watch her in silence

wondering all she has experienced;

thinking of the many lives she has touched.

She has influenced me greatly

though i never have told her.

She used to read me stories

but those days are gone.

Now we sit on the porch together

watching the sun go down.

Now, not really having any common bonds;

just feeling special towards one another

from what used to be.
