- Solitude - - Poem by Kay Barcelon

Feel and enjoy this moment
Listen to the gentleness of silence

Uninterrupted thoughts are comforting
The calmness in the air is soothing

Relax to the kindness that surrounds you
Loneliness is just an illusion

Solitude is uplifting
Close your eyes and feel

    Solitude or loneliness it is the time given by the nature or God to us.Which can be mentioned something very personal.That is where we understand ourselves better.Learn to pardon others.Those feeling can not be compared with any thing else.I am impressed with this poem.Mine is also on similar lines.I admire the imagination gone into making this literary structure in the form of a poem.My 10 (Report)Reply

    Many call Solitude a friend only because they cannot stand its full attentions. Solitude, however, is a loving partner that is always welcome in my house.
    Very well done- Orran

    I too have written about solitude and embrace it as would a semi frequent friend. A friend that although loved, is best seen only on occasion. (Report)Reply

    I like the fact that you take a different perception on being alone, to make it a calm peacefulness that many find hard to do. Great job
