    I had some trouble interpreting the following lines, no doubt due to differences of word usage between here and there! (the last words in lines 1,2, and 4 of the stanza) .

    “Loneliness includes social factor that is thrust
    Solitude includes social factor that is choicest
    Loneliness is caused by lack of friendship
    Solitude is caused to give others a skip”

    I may also want to look up the definition of “acme”. there are lots of words in English I am ignorant about! :)

    I like what you say, though it sounds to me more like a lecture to a psychology class. don’t mind me. thanks for sharing and I hope your remaining years are filled with more solitude than loneliness.

    Loneliness is an attitude—causing anxious feelings
    Solitude is an attitude—causing joyous feelings
    Loneliness is a subjective experience
    Solitude is an objective experience.. beautiful comparisons dear poetess. wonderful poem. i simply liked it. want to read more of your poems. in Solitude alone you reach God. thank you. tony

    The distinction between loneliness and simply being alone - two different things. Good write Chandra. (Report) Reply

    Actually, I think it is possible to have solitude in a crowd of strangers that you don't have to converse with, but otherwise I agree absolutely - thoughtful poem. (Report) Reply

    I have never before read such a FULL poem exhaustively dedicated to the dual images of Loneliness and Solitude... It is fine to note that lonleliness too teaches us a lot.. Kudos to you Madam Chandra for your unfailing lines all throughout the work. (Report) Reply

    Soon I will be posting another poem, THE BLISS OF SOLITUDE which can perhaps be read as an annexe to this poem! (Report) Reply

    Great! ! How well you have brought in the difference between the two which by many are seen as synonyms! Chandra, your brain and imagination work in a superior way bringing out the subtleties of life's undefinable equations!
    Each time I read your poems, I am enriched! ! For this you deserve a full10
