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.

Let’s sit together and think
That was quite sometimes ago
Don’t you think we should do so?
It’s been some time
When we had last this silence
Spread over the colours of us
The race life has become
Takes us to shores
Where words though echo
They always look in a hurry
To rush to the middle ground
Life looks cocooned,
Impregnated in a shell
Marooned to the logs adrift
And it has taken over us
Changing the way we introspect
And reflect on, when we sit
But can we change the way really?
Shouldn’t we introspect?
Let’s sit together and think
Thinking and reflecting on
The way it was between us
When life was not a race
When silence made us to croon
And words echoed to sing
Let’s sit together and think
What meant togetherness then?
And why it sucks now?
Why we question more,
And why we look in eyes less?
Let’s sit together and think
When ‘us’ started becoming ‘I’,
And shores the shifting grounds
Don’t you think we should go back,
To the colours of us..
