Stranger in My Home

On days like this

Nights when I cannot sleep

Wandering from room to room

Searching …

For something …

Anything that is familiar

I am a stranger in my home

Memories follow me

like ghosts

Floating through my mind

Confusing me …

Haunting me …

Keeping me awake …

There is nothing familiar

Nothing left that I remember

Only a house with emptiness

yet filled with things

things I don’t need

And …

Cannot release

Who have I become?

Does it matter?

There is only me

in my solitude

But …

alone …

never lonely …

Solitude

Much of my life has

been spent being alone

But …

Rarely lonely

 

Some people and I am one

need a time of solitude of

being alone … one on one

with nature to be able to

recharge…

create…

unwind…

find ourselves …

 

Relish and enjoy those

periods of solitude

You will most likely find

something you are not

looking for

Yet …

Something that will bring

you much joy

enrich your life in ways

you never expected

 

If you rarely have

personal solitude

begin carving out little

snippets of time just

for you and experience

the wonder of you …

I will be life changing …

Peace

 

These days I more often look for

Solitude …

Peace and quiet …

A place for contemplation…

reflection…

renewal…

 

Peaceful …

No phones

No TV

But most of all

No internet

No distractions at all

 

A place where I am

able to sit and think

or read

or write

or do nothing at all

for hours on end

 

A place all my own

where the world can

never find me

A place of freedom

and sanctuary to

find myself and

let myself go

Not dependent on

anyone or anything

 

A little spot of

Serenity until it

is time to enter

the world again…

Pre-Dawn

She loved the early morning
The peace it holds while
the sky is still the color
of blue velvet with a hint
of the coming dawn
 
It is then she likes
to walk and experience
the newness of another day
 
Solitude…
Quiet…
Calm…
Where the only sounds
are her footsteps and
the beating of her heart
While the Moon whispers
‘good morning’ to the Stars
