The chance to just ‘be’
with my thoughts
with my hopes
with my dreams
yes, even my fears
is a need, a must, an ‘I can’t do without’.
Company drains me, if it’s not what fits
as a long-lost jigsaw piece completing the picture of me.
I am a square peg in the round hole of life
unless (and until) I can claim my solitude
until I can meditate on my island
until I can breathe in
until I can breathe out
and feel whole again.
Over on A Dash of Sunny, we are invited to express ourselves on solitude. Do we need it? Do we hate our own company? How do we feel?
I don’t think I beat about the bush on this – how about you?
All that glisters is
generally gold, but is its
glory what we need?
people shine in our
hearts, more permanent, more true,
but so transient
It’s time for TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge, where today the prompt is ‘gold’. That precious metal s something many hanker after, but what does it truly give us, in the end?
Please do take part – it’s fun!
There fell upon this rain-drenched land
A ray of light, a soothing hand
of cheer, of warmth, of hope and light
of future joys, such a delight
to the wind-battered peoples down below
who hid ‘neath coats, who struggled so
through darkened morns, and chill-bound eves
who no longer had the will to believe
in evenings soothed with the orb so rare
who sets lights a-shining in young girls’ hair.
This week, A Dash of Sunny invites us to write a poem inspired by Summer. My offering is a little tongue-in-cheek since we have had all types of weather here since Summer officially began. Today, I am bathed in sunshine as I write, but earlier in the day we had short, sharp downpours, interspersed with gloriuus blue skies and thunder as well!
Why not join in and take part? All are welcome and your host is a simply lovely lady!
