books and journals

I need to be alone today…

Maybe it’s the season

That could be the reason

For my solitude and dismay

I just want to spend some time

With my books, my words, my rhymes

People do not interest me

I do not want to see

Friends or family or loud

Boisterous, glitzy crowds

I want no well meaning comments

I want silence and darkness to lament

The cold, dreary ice that has seized my heart

It will run its course and depart

When I wish to see the sun

And welcome my loved ones

But for now, I must be alone…

When I surface, I will have grown

From my books, my words, my rhymes…

    1. My husband actually took offense to it. He thought it was personalized toward him. You’d think he’d understand me by now. I need my alone time to rejuvenate and create. The down time makes me more the good, caring person I want to be when others need me. Silence and creativity give me the strength and knowledge to replenish my faith in all things unseen.


      1. I so agree with this, and my husband would take offense with this poem as well. But they just don’t understand that we writers need to think and plan are next attack, lol


  1. Soul Search

    Are we earning to pay builders and interior designers, caterers and decorators?

    Whom do we want to impress with our highly inflated house properties & fat weddings?

    Do you remember for more than two days what you ate at someone’s marriage?

    Why are we working like dogs in our prime years of life?

    How many generations do we want to feed?

    Most of us have two kids. Many have a single kid.

    How much is the “need” and how much do we actually “want”??
    Think about it.

    Would our next generation be incapable to earn, that we save so much for them!?!

    Can not we spare one and a half days a week for friends, family and self??

    Do you spend even 5% of your monthly income for your self enjoyment?

    Why can’t we enjoy simultaneously while we earn?

    Spare time to enjoy before you have slipped discs and large prostates.

    We don’t own properties, we just have temporary name on documents.

    GOD laughs sarcastically, when someone says,
    “I am the owner of this land”!!

    Do not judge a person only by the length of his car.

    Many of our science and maths teachers were great personalities riding on scooters!!

    It is not bad to be rich, but it is very unfair, to be only rich.

    Let’s get a LIFE, before life gets us, instead….
