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.

Life is reciting
The poem
That had its thought
Come to life
Some years ago
When your word
Had suddenly given it
The expression
It needed to begin
And I started
Writing what I loved
Life is here now
Journeyed through 
All these years 
To distant thoughts
To unseen abodes 
Where words 
Tried desperately 
To weave again 
What was then

When it all began 
Life is reciting
That poem
That had a soul
To become one
With my soul
Beautifully weaved 
By my words 
Some years ago
Words again
Want to melt 
To get along
Beyond identities  
As if it is about
Living again 
The yesterday..
