Return to isolation

Returned to Solitude

life's twilight years

I tried I really did
but how can one fight for long the very
nature of our soul
from the dregs of a large family
the blossoming inwards of  youth towards
the solitary
and there I stayed
for so long
so long

And  it’s the opposite of what should have been
I know
in life  I warred against it all along
like I was told
they said marry and have a child
and I did
Sometimes all it seems to have accomplished
was to drive the women all away
the wife
the child
and the familial of it all

Today I returned to solitude  and greeted happily
my old friends
a slowly falling snow storm
a pink sunrise
and a foreboding dusk
a soft gentle breeze in the bows
and I felt at home
without it all
only to watch it happen once again
from a safe distance
I have returned

Sometime in my life, I started to write about my life journey, in poetry, in story perhaps to sort them out and enter them into a place of safekeeping. The soul of the writer is perhaps best described in their words, emotions and thoughts. If these poems or stories touch something inside you then maybe I have succeeded in sharing. I will not write about my self in profile, because self isn't so important in writing. Only the journey in words and the sharing are important. Why would weever say " Now about me !"........I'd rather write about life, nature, serenity ........

    Beautiful words, Ed. Vividly expressed. Even when we feel alone we have old natural friends to keep us company.

    Nicely rendered Ed and very thought-provoking. I need solitude, for me it is a necessity, to relent on all the noise of people’s minds and the world as a whole. Often it is this state that teaches us to love ourselves and thereby love others and receive it in return. Being content with our journey, regardless of what that is, is paramount for us finding spiritual peace and abiding happiness. Nice work my friend.
