sunset obscured by rain clouds
moon and stars conceal’d by same
frogs and crickets make a symphony
TV and laughter cause a cacophony
streetlights and twinkling bugs
lightning and neon bulbs
lights in the clouds
life is all around
fragrance and odour in the air
Human beings outdoors, behind walls
animals in the earth, in trees tall.
thoughts and voices
a myriad of choices
chastisement and commendations
spiritual and material inspirations
soul searching, heart enlarging
fantasies unfolding, solitude barging
my lonesome-ness pulls me apart
reality puts me back together.
what did i do in a world so full
to deserve beautiful solitude.
