Solitude (Poetry)

A smile, a socializing soul,

Loud music, food junkie;

A discovery of solitude,

A peaceful breach

Away from the urban ruckus.

Calm and collected,

In a personal twilight zone.

The rhythm of the bruised heart,

Flowing in tune and idolizing

With the currents.
Inspiration glows within.

My mind is put at ease.

Harmonizing sounds,

Of living creatures;

Minimizes the noises of demons,

Inside and out.

Paddling to stay ahead of the crowd,

Gnats, and mosquito.

Zig zagging around tree branches 
That swim until exhaustion,
sink into the darkness,
 

Or rests ashore a sand bar.

Apparent, nightmarish for the city slick,

But a joyful challenge for one

Who’s passion unfolds with the wild.

In nature a secret revealed

For a spiritual measure.
