Treasure Island

David Harris

(18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)

Solitude Is Not Loneliness


Sometimes we sit alone
with the Lord and a prayer
to keep us company.
We need the solitude
to refresh our thoughts
that sometimes go astray,
to put them back on track
making us feel secure
in our mind and body
to face all our challenges
for one more day.
Although we sit in solitude
we are never on our own
the voices of friends and family
are never far away
to give us comfort
on any given day.
Solitude is not loneliness,
but just a state
we need to be
from time to time
letting the world and its troubles
leave us far behind.

    I find prayer and daily scripture reading to bring me more solitude than anything else. I don't do it enough and that's why I'm hanging off the earth by a thread. I also find loneliness to be strongest when I am never alone. Funny how life plays tricks like that. Thanks for posting. I was reading Romans 1: 18-20 today- great verses. :) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
