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.

The heat was intense,
Blowing into the face,
Day after day,
In that particular hour,
Emerging from the corners,
Approaching from the sides,
Sometimes, meeting head-on,
Enveloping body and soul,

The touch was passionate,
Going deeper inside,
Day after day,
In the moments of contact,
Beginning on a hostile note,
Picking up words en-route,
Trying to convey its grounds,
For us to go for more rounds,

Beginning on a May afternoon,
Sighing for the piece of Moon,
Getting on with moments in June,
Taking on the life, setting its tune,

To continue...
