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 darkness is converging
And the similes are deviating
The horizon is shrinking
And the meanings are agreeing
The wind is in a rush to get intimate
The rain is willing to reciprocate
The communion is to be passionate

Pushed by the nature’s urge to create
The journey in these hours
From vagueness to dark showers
Rewriting the spell that it honours
To retell the tale as it flowers
The sky looks all so clean
Swept by the darkness and its sheen
The similes are singing, look so keen
Spread over the horizon now so green
