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.

He was my knight
Taking me to the corners
I had been to
Meeting my words
When thoughts would walk
Free, beyond every perception
To find newness in sameness
I know he would never betray
And would care for my thoughts
To help me weave words around
In the corners I visit
Reflecting on colours that bathe
He was my friend
Who understood me
Helping my words
To get their life
Breathing in them a new meaning
At every step
While walking with my thoughts..
