Blessed Solitude

Did you ever wake up
and suddenly feel
like yourself again
and then try to remember when
the last time was?

a time when no one
dared or could intrude
upon your peace of mind

a time of rest
in solitary amplitude
of your own soul

a time to test
advice so often given
to so many others
drifting in and out
of daily life

when suddenly its known
and a seed implanted grown
into a flower
that blossoms in the quiet hours
of blessed solitude
