Solitude

20170628_135132

I may not get to the mountain top today,

or walk in the tall grass

but I can surround myself

with the woods, seeking light,

or walk by the lake,

pause on a rock watching

the ducks gently paddle,

as I close my eyes,

breathing deep.

Note: I like many of you, feel a need to have an inner quiet, a time to reassess and pull back.

I know I always work too hard, post too often. And everytime I say I’m taking a break, it doesn’t happen for long. It’s who I am I guess.

One way I have made time though, is by sharing from my archives. So I’ll do that for awhile, and post less often.

My priorities are to take care of my wife, and my own health.

I’ll also be spending even more time outside (yay!), learning more yoga, exercising, and reading.

I love reading paranormal spy thriller novels, and poetry. My favorite poets right now are Rupi Kaur and Courtney Peppernell.

Thank you for reading!

  1. Spending time today catching up on my reading. As always, your poems take me to my happy place of inspiration! “Pause on a rock watching” … yes, time to pause and watch. Thank you for the reminder. Peace, friend.

  2. While reading your poem it made me take a deep breath. And then reading your thoughts behind made take another one. You are so right. Take time for yourself and your loved ones. I enjoy it a lot that everything is slowing down and gives me the opportunity to work a lot more relaxed and smell more of the flowers along the way. Take care, Nico.
