In Solitude - Poem by Barry Middleton

in solitude there is consolation
to be alone for just a moment
to find a rare and silent retreat

in a windy forest without sound
I see the pulse of a living breeze
I touch the heartbeat of the air

so isolation sharpens the senses
I sit beside the ocean at sunset
that is one sensation of beauty

as I close my eyes in blindness
I can taste the salt in the mist
I can hear the seagulls searching

to transcend all glare and noise
I turn from every earthly bond
as only then may I know my soul
