Isolation

Isolation

In the stillness
of my mind
there is no noise
to confuse
or mask thoughts
Only peace
and tranquility
Allowing transition
from a state
of madness
swathed
in dark robes
to pellucidity
Where the light
shines bright
and unveiled
Paving the way
to concentration
and meditation
in solitude

    It is good if solitude can take one from a state of madness.

    To find such quiet can be a blessing… if we know how to handle it.
