Seeking Solitude

Seeking Solitude

I never fear it
seek it often,
search it out
and yearn for it.
Need no one else
to fill the void
this wondrous
state
of
Solitude

No not a bit
like lonliness,
omnipotent
in sorrows cast.
In solitude
there is a joy
a precious time
of self connection
that loneliness
exists without .

Hi LODI!!..... yes indeed.... there definitely exists that place of quiet solitude where the meditative healing state flourishes...... allowing for man's most undiscovered territory to shine...... the power of the mind blossoming into what will soon become universally recognized as the mind & body's ability to reach into the metaphysical and paranormal potential of humanity!!......ALL STARS!!....... my kind of subject matter dear poet sister!!.......LOVE & ROCKETS!!.......T xo. : )

I am never alone when i am looking for solitude..it's a great time for introspection I think  and  of sorting out your thoughts with no distractions..so different from lonliness thankfully, I love your words about the mind and body's ability to reach into the metaphysical and paranormal potential..SUCH a fantastic image to want to relate to..The mind is such a powerful tool with so much still unknown and to be discovered! what a thrilling time we might have in the future..really love your comments and they always give me something to think about my dear brother poet! xxx

5 stars, lodigiana. I totally relate to this. Being an only child, I've always flourished on my own somehow. 'Need no one else to fill the void this wondrous state of solitude.' Wonderful line, wonderful poem ❤

Hi Lodigiana.  Solitude allows reflection and even creativity to flourish, where loneliness is a feeling of being alone and neglected.  Solitude can bring peace and renewal....I see solitude at times too....especially with such a busy active family in my house, and feeling pulled in all directions...lol  I found solitude just by reading your poem... ;)  Great theme and poem.  xo Love n Hugs ;)

Love this poem and definitely it resonates with me ! I need my 'me time' and think being at ease with oneself is a much under valued trait than always needing the company of others , The words flow perfectly , great work ! x
