Solitude

Solitude

whispers
a rain drop
quietness
seclusion
look inside we have nothing to hide
a premonition
seclusion

the woods
through the forest we see a glimmer of light
the absence of the good brings on the bad
Surrender to the force
quick conclusions will often lead the best of us astray,
the wisest move in life is but to wait
otherwise are galloping emotions run away
like horses at the gate
spirituality
alone

    A subject devoted to making life better through proper evaluation of circumstances before taking a decision. It is better to ponder over all pros and cons. Highly thought provoking. Thanks.

    Being spiritually alone is truly important for one to meditate, ponder and think of the things that happen everyday...
    A perfect 10.... You may visit my AN EVENING MEDITATION.. Thanks, John...

    John, I have a strong feeling this would be much better if you created some vivid images to carry your message. Read some good contemporary poets like Philip Levine of Mary Oliver to be guidd and inspired.

    if you have time, check out my new website:

    Tell me how you like it. Thanks! Yrs, JC
