  • Ode to chairs

    Dear chairs,
    You appear to be multiplying
    in our quiet brown house.

    Some of you are familiar old friends,
    others of you have only just arrived
    and I haven’t quite got used to you yet.
    Some of you I can’t move, some of you
    make me constantly stub my toe.
    Others of you are light as air as I
    move you from one corner of the room
    to another. Some of you are quite
    uncomfortable, others surprisingly
    relaxing; some quiet and humble,
    others a little louder. Some of you
    are ugly, but all of you are beautiful.
    Some of you I dislike, yet none I
    would want to live without.

    You come from nature, from the ground,
    trees and rocks, but you
    also speak of modern times.

    You are all different, but you are
    all made in the same spirit, by the
    same hands, and can stand alone or
    live together. Each of you speaks
    of a time, a place and a moment
    in our lives.

    With love, Gemma & Ivo
