Magical Solitude

Magical Solitude

#100DaysOfBlogging Day 15

There’s no noise now,
But I hear the silence
In the solitude around;
I can hear my thoughts,
Some that I like a lot.

A part of myself rises,
One that I’d subdued,
One I’d reveal to few;
I love the noise of life,
Yet in the silence,
In this new solitude,
There’s a magic I find
In clearing the mind.

Collecting my thoughts
That remained forgot,
Throwing some away
So hopefulness stays;
Solitude isn’t weakness,
I’m never really alone;
There’s music in silence,
Where I feel right at home.

From 23rd September, exactly 100 days are left in the year, the idea is to write on each of these days. A few other friends chose their own themes. I thought I’d collaborate with Aniesha bon on the challenge. We’re choosing topics on alternate days, and each day, we’re writing on the same topic too. She chose the topic MAGIC for Day 15.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Whistles!!! ❤️? This is absolutely exquisite writing, Vinay 😀 I love the idea of solitude having magic to reveal the subdued side which is otherwise hidden deep inside of us.. such a deep and thoughtful vision. I also love the image of “Collecting my thoughts that remained forgot, throwing some away so hopefulness stays” Beautifully penned. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support ❤️?

    Lots of love,

  2. Yes, I can certainly relate to this:

    “There’s a magic I find
    In clearing the mind.”

    And there’s certainly more than one’s fair share of solitude in a writer’s life…..

  3. I think there are moments when I would find the noise inside unbearable, at other times I would seek the music of solitude.

  4. I very much resonate with your words. I live much in silence, and treasure my solitude. It gives us a chance to rest. I like what you say about never being really alone. That is true, when one is tuned to the music of the spheres.

  5. I like your very positive idea of throwing some thoughts away so that hopefulness stays. It would be wonderful if we could all do the same. Your words express the best aspects of solitude.

  6. solitude & silence are the best thing that brings me full satisfaction & takes away all my stress .. i love to be alone always …btw connected with your beautiful poem 🙂

    • Glad you could connect with the poem, Dew. 🙂 I think most people like that solitude when we can reflect and refresh our thoughts. I don’t like to be alone always, but for some time, it is good!

  7. There is music in solitude…Indeed! There is beauty in silence when the thought process is beautiful too..Beautiful writing..
