Sounds of Solitude!

V. J’s weekly challenge: ” What pulls on your soul?”

Away from the rut of the mundane

as the wandering thoughts settle,

clouds of chaos dissipate

when all the noise is silenced,

I sit alone by the sparkling blue ocean

watching the tidal waves ebb,

soaking me with candid conversations,

washing away my wistful woes.

The nascent rays of dawn

usher in a promise of hope.

I hear their unspoken words.

 The sublime sounds of solitude

wrap my soul in a tranquil embrace.

  1. Beautifully written and expressed Radhika! The sea is indeed something so vast and mysterious, and we do small in comparison that we tend to lose all pretence in its presence I think. The best place to be at peace, contemplate or just while your time away is a peaceful seashore, in a beautiful dawn, before the crowds start filling in 🙂

  3. The current state of mind that I am in,I look for nothing but solitude. I loathe the chaos of everyday life.
    I often think of visiting the sea,but cannot go due to the hectic schedule that I have. We all are in some way or the other,caught up in a rat-trap.
