Blissful Solitude and Silence

In the bed of the river of my safe space
I lie low to the ground and hide
Away from people and noise and outside life
I cling to my cherished peace and quiet
Which is gone in an instant when I am invaded
The need to leave my cocoon and eat
A battle in my heart to honour myself
Or be acceptable to society and the norm
In silence I flourish totally unafraid
Loving my company and self-discovery
Getting to know the being that is me
Appreciating the tranquillity that is mine
The calm and serenity of my life
People a new kind of overwhelm
In an already chaotic and busy world
My time I must protect and my soul
For quiet is the energy and renewal that I need
Solitude the regeneration of my mind
Contemplation and meditation my revival

  1. When I need time alone, I fall asleep early and then wake in the wee hours when no one is around. That’s been going on for the last 11 days while I work through some stuff. I do not plan it, my body just does it.
