Valsa George


The Bliss of Solitude


In life’s incessant din
As I search for peace within
Lone spaces I desire
And stillness I adore
Then silence is my mate
And noise is what I hate

Closing my eyes to the outer space
A window opens to my inner space
I begin to find solace in my solitude
And look up to Heaven in gratitude
Enriched with visions pleasurable
I enter into a realm so delectable
The vault of Heaven gemmed and bright
And the Earth and sea overwhelmed in light
The disquiet within me subsides
An unassailable calm slowly descends
I hear a caring voice from somewhere
A faint voice quite reassuring, so near
Then within me the Wider Life emerges
And the lesser life finally submerges
I experience what is true joy and content
And I am so sure it is heaven sent

Oh! What solace is in my solitude!
And how I move into near beatitude!

    Excellent. That truly is the blissful solitude that you are able to achieve when your mind is otherwise quiet. Thanks for drawing my attention to this lovely poem.
    I failed to quieten my mind [ MY poem 'Let Me BE Me' ] and am denied this bliss. (Report) Reply

    Like Wordsworth's Daffodils 'the bliss of solitude' is cherished by poets and all thinking minds.You could recognize the wider life and the lesser life in solitude, your feelings are shared, dear Valsa ma'am. (Report) Reply

    Wonderful! Besides your talents in adoring the beauty of Nature, you are more capable on writing about philosophical ideas. Lines 7 and 8 are extraordinary. The whole poem assures solace to restless minds.
    Excellent. (Report) Reply

    I see, enjoy and delight in your solace-permeated solitude. As William Wordsworth rightly versed in Resolution and Independence with the reference of Robert Burns and the 'Baby Poet' we poets have a special kind of destiny. Being sanely insane is sensibly justified with your earnest appreciation and acceptance of solitude as an absolute abode of solace and inner peace. I feel like writing still deeper, but i must ride over each line repeatedly in pursuit of worthy interpretations. You have, as usual, made the reader too feel the need and goodness of getting encompassed in the purest form of solitude scientifically. God Bless. Keep penning. I find my advent in your domain of versification in the landing couplet. (If not mistaken) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
