In Solitude

by Ronald A Pavellas

Here is that special place
Now is that timeless moment
Which dwells between my highs and lows

Energetic calmness
Relaxed attention to my inner self

I ponder the differences
In how we poets see the world

You feel pain and longing
I feel stretched, as tugged
From two opposing poles

You want things to change
I need to understand
My place among them

You want life to be beautiful
I need to make sense of it

Between us and beyond us
Is The Whole, the Great Everything
Of which we perceive
Only what our perceptual talents allow

There can be no settled argument
As to who among us sees It True

So, dear poet friend
Let us rejoice that
In combination
And with our peculiar visions
We see more
Than if we observed and wrote...

In solitude.
