Solitude


'Solitude'-the word despicable
for some,
precludes socializing,
devoid of bond,
bereft of unity.

But a loner receives 'solitude'
on a welcome note.
She savours the succulent solitude
till the last morsel.

The desolate place pools her haphazourd thoughts,
which never got an ambience to percolate,
to get streamlined and make flow like a rivulet.

She reflects on her existence, her values,
her purpose of life and the vision
in the comforting blanket of solitude.

In her anchorage with the solitude
she extends her sight to the colonnade of trees,
to the horizon where the sky fondly touches
the convergence of mountains
and the cloud mingles.

Through the vista
she looks on to the
sailing boats on the river,
which, miles away,
bear the semblance of sharks.

Merging in the solitude
she murmurs in her soliloquy
that to witness the
Mother Nature's vicissitude
the ideal environment will be solitude.

    Let me start with a comment of Matinee Magnificent of Bengali silver screen Mrs. Suchita Sen [she went into exclusive seclusion a few years back] ‘I’m alone but not lone’

    In your poetry Didi you’ve beautifully portrayed serene state of solitude thro’ viewing the spectacular Nature …you’ve made your thumbs up to ‘solitude-savoring’.

    Well when one consciously volutes into the chasm of solitude charms are awaiting there to be cherished and mutely get soused with inner rapture…rhapsodic state and become sublime with oneself to discover the Vedic saying ‘I’m That’ I’m Thou’

    'the ideal environment will be solitude.'...solitude can not be its real meaning to a human mind but feeling the whole environment in solitude only makes it...you've rightly said...thank you (Report) Reply

    her anchorage with the solitude
    she extends her sight to the colonnade of trees,
    to the horizon where the sky fondly touches
    the convergence of mountains
    and the cloud mingles..............................eyes yet meanders into silhouette
    extending innate of whole being as when in the midst of solitude the very quest of deciphering the code of this earthly existence within frame work of divinity, yet all when unanswered heaving the mystery, excellent exposition of facet of relevance haunting within, but all queries seem to reflex upon revelation of nature, yet the soliloquy most introspective, ingenious,10+++++, thanks for sharing (Report) Reply
