Solitude, Singing


Being alone is knowing
That in in this solitary splendour
Solitude, stark and staring,

    Hello. I'd like to inform you that I used the first stanza of your poem in a competition speech of mine on solitude, in which I credit you. I thought it was beautiful.

    Let me know if that's a problem.

    Thanks. (Report) Reply

    I agree - the sense is in the silences. There is so much to listen to, we cannot hear any more. Excellent poem, Rani.

    Silence can be more than words
    Empty words echoing in an empty world...

    Beautifully write. Very often, silence - gold... 10...

    Silence can be more than words
    Empty words echoing in an empty world......................

    resonance still persits by the silence,
    history yet reverberates in its vale,
    echoes when come out across the cliff
    the world opens its pages of painted art by the life and living.............excellent flow of thought to a height of hill top raving across the moonlit valley but seeming lonely and alone exulting the impeccable metaphors and imagery ingenuiousy, well penned,10+, thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
