When I Am Alone - Poem by M.D Dinesh Nair

When I am alone with my people being far away
I see a myriad of my little friends who are still in my mind
A line of ants and a swarm of tiny bees and flies

When I stand alone with no smiling friend lingering around
I look for a row of birds flying, a squint eyed black crow,
And a few moths or silver winged dragon flies....

When I sit alone with none to ask, 'are you bored? '
I remember my long lost pets of my childhood days
And I watch the street dogs with no names to call.

When I begin to sleep in the mid of an ailment
I feel the presence of a trillion bacteria and fungi within me
And I wonder when they would sleep at all.

But being alone is very very rare these days
As I find myself lost in a crowd oftener than before
And I wonder what my little brethren will think of me?

    Yes a very true poem, I also think to be alone here and then is important, allow us to observe. Sometimes may open a secret door of our soul.. It feels like connection... a firefly would rest on my hand. I keep my breathe and than I start to dance...Yes indeed such moments could have when alone. Thank you for share, a beautiful poem!
