The best way to know the self is feeling oneself at the moments of reckoning. The feeling of being alone, just with your senses, may lead you to think more consciously. More and more of such moments may sensitize ‘you towards you’, towards others. We become regular with introspection and retrospection. We get ‘the’ gradual connect to the higher self we may name Spirituality or God or just a Humane Conscious. We tend to get a rhythm again in life. We need to learn the art of being lonely in crowd while being part of the crowd. A multitude of loneliness in mosaic of relations! One needs to feel it severally, with conscience, before making it a way of life. One needs to live several such lonely moments. One needs to live severallyalone.

This is to be a different mile..

Walking down the known aisle 
Trying to read the familiar simile 
Once again!
Hunting down the smiling guile 
Poised to regain!
Nothing but the sky to reclaim 
In full vein it's my rein! 
O', the wilt of that wuthering rain 

Heading up the tilting cross
That eerie feeling of symbolic loss 
One that life keeps in store, 
That could send me for a toss,
Was there again, set to regain

When I had heard the call

Lost in the alley of loss and gain 
When the life is thrown in mayhem 

My inner sanctum found me again

Voicing the lost Soul of my name
And there I could see, 
The inviting open sky at the horizon 
The undercurrent of that, 
Unnerving omen
When the fugitive turns-in 
Once again!
To the beaten, blotted, hunted pain 

Had to realize I was beyond,

Their feeble lords of the frame

Determined, away from the cries of, 

The galleried woes
Linking the life, again, 
To the rejuvenating rose
Believing in the words,

In their prose
Denying the moments,

Yet another futile effort, 

To make the desert sand creep-in,
Peeping-in through a hole, 
Making even larger moles 

I am there yet again,
Rewriting the running scroll 

Walking down the known aisle 
Reading that very familiar simile 
Positively knowing all this while 
This is to be a different mile..
