Twin Cinquains - Loneliness / Solitude

LONELINESS
Unwelcome companion
Plunging the aged
Into morbid estranging insularity
Loathsome

SOLITUDE
Willful Aloofness
Farewell to disquiet
Gentle wafting into calmness
Bliss

    Very good description of loneliness and solitude. You would
    make Webster (dictionary) very proud. Too much of the former
    is not so good. Too little of the latter it really does matter. An
    excellent write.

    Just because you are by yourself does not mean thay you are alone.
    There is no greater loneliness than being in a crowd of people you do not know.
    Solitude goes hand in hand with gratitude and the child peace that they bear.
    But if you combine loneliness and solitude you have a cold blue cloudless sky
    with edges brazened, polished, and cold as ice.

    Clearly defined-well done

    Valsa in a nut-shell (in Cinquains) you have explained loneliness and Solitude so elaborately! !

  • Shahzia Batool (8/18/2013 8:03:00 AM)

    very well-defined...one can feel lonely among many, like Bacon says in his essay: in the absence of friend faces are but a gallery of pictures and their talk is just like the sound of tinkling cymbals...and the world is but a wilderness... while the state of solitude has an attitude of tranquility, enjoying himself/herself like the Solitary Reaper, lost and happy in her work, singing to herself...this solitude is the most wanted state in Russell's philosophy also, he offers it as a remedy for many of our social ills, as he diagnosed that we have lost the happiness as we have lost the solitude! ! !
    thanks for the beautiful poem Valsa ji! ! !

    Loneliness and solitude can be refreshing and give you time to think but is bad for you if that is all life has to offer.

  • Tirupathi Chandrupatla (8/15/2013 12:47:00 PM)

    Loneliness and solitude clearly defined in the poem. First occurs unwillingly and the second is self inflicted. Beautifully presented. Thank you.
