58 FREEDOM SECULSION-NECCESSARY ESCAPE

Every once in a while one must cocoon in seclusion,

Away from the wondering eyes,

The prying sighs,

The judgmental smiles,

The external uttering’s,

From the this and the that;

The he said, she said

The demanders,

The beggars,

The constant naggers,

The nay sayers,

The players,

The meddlers,

The malice perpetrators,

The prolific advisors,

If only but for a moment...

To hear oneself think!

To truly understand what one believes outside of influences.

To access the center of ones being,

To dwell in the place of silence, solitude and tranquility...

In order to find clarity and assurance.

To Affirm and Reaffirm,

To Connect and Re-connect

With the Divine,

With Self,

To understand purpose;

And to bask in the knowledge that one's feet is still firmly planted.

Sometimes.....

Silence is golden

Solitude is grace

And a necessary escape

For one to find their place

    1. It starts small, take it hour to hour eventually you'll get there.

      I am seriously considering it, (publish for purchase that is)

  5. I agree completely, well said.
    Solitude and communing with nature is essential.
    Do it often and you can tolerate the world of man.
    A mantra to live by.

    Solitude is grace
    And a necessary escape

  9. Ms Rhapsody,
    It’s been my pleasure. I was first introduced to you at JoJo’s aka C.C.Gill. I like your style and I intend to visit again. In the meantime, if you would be so kind, please except my invitation so that I might have the pleasure of your future updates. Long live the ball point. Your’s in the ink,

      You do so love that monosyllabic summation don't you. Makes me smile all the time…..word?

    2. Yes i do,most times it goes places it should not. i`ll check that.

      Delete
    3. lol, lol, its like my hmmmmmm....every time i use it or say it people go, "what does that mean?"

      The reason your usage of "word" amuses me is because i used it as a young girl in the Islands (Trinidad).

      Delete
    4. You used it for the same reason too? like in Agreement?

      Delete
    5. Yes, absolutely.....its my go to, there are times when no amount of words would do justice, when all that is needed is your ear, time, tolerance to signify that you are listening, in agreement, questioning, reflecting etc.

      How you doing Darling, this weekend going/went good for you? What are your plans for the coming week?

  11. This is a good one.

    It's difficult sometimes for me to find a place of solitude (there's a lot of craziness around) but I'm working on it; taking conscious steps to find my place.

    1. thank you....
      You will find something, though you'd be surprise how you can crave out some time in the most unique and unsuspecting places. (A far off corner at the library, At night retiring extra early to get in some meditative time before sleep, In the wee hours of the morning before the household comes alive even the bathroom believe it or not.) Good luck seeking I have you doubt you will indeed find.

  14. Ohhhh! Silence and alone times are essential! It's the best time to re-adjust ones life. Times like that is good for setting goals and filtering out certain things from your life.

  18. Nice, I enjoyed this poem. I can so relate to this, every now and then you definitely need a little time for yourself to self reflect or to even think. Breaking away to have that time is so necessary.

  19. Gosh.... I haven't been alone is such a long time, I don't even know what it feels like anymore... or perhaps how to deal with it.

    1. hmmmmm.....
      Well there is alone and there is ALONE (physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual etc), there is a broad difference as one can be alone in a crowd.

      No one no matter how much they love you can do emotional/psychological/spiritual inventory for you. They can support you in the process but they cannot do it for you. I have no doubt you do this, it can also be done in a crowd.....(smile).

      Take care.

  20. *finger snaps like at the end of a spoken word reading*

    We are becoming more and more distracted everyday. And moving away from silence and hearing ourselves think. To just think with clarity is a blessing in itself these days. Sigh.

  22. Someone please call 911 because I think my thoughts/feelings were just stolen!

    I truly enjoyed reading this and it conveyed many of my thoughts/feelings. I used to go into a self-imposed exile at least once every other week and I haven't done it in such a long time, but I'm feeling the need becoming greater for me to start doing it again. I enjoy the solitude; the technical disconnect; the fragrant smell of lavendar oil buring and filling me with the tranquility and serenity to fade into me.

    Thank you for sharing this and inspiring me to take myself back and disconnet in order to reconnect

  23. Good Rhapsody I truly believe in solitude every now and again. All your words are so true .. Only last September I took myself off to a wonderful Hotel , across the South East of England. There I stayed for one day and a very relaxing evening. Time to re think etc I felt refreshed the next Morning not to have exchanged one word with anyone at all. I love this post and agree completely.
