WHEN I AM ALONE


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!

    ': The squint eyed crow' is a beautiful observation! Yes, a crow has always a side glance! Somehow your companions sound quite interesting! (Report) Reply

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
