“ Solitude ” ~ or empirical hermit ~


A singular solitude

Having solo attitude,

Of empirical hermiting

With inherent aptitude,

Seeking thus reclusion

From dubious vicissitude,

Tells of yesterday 

Suggesting singles’ play,

And ever wildish sprees

Be much of times way

Indulging sociability,

For life be then a bout

Of post adolescent curiosity,

Advantaging the possibilities,

With vigour and vivacity…  


But then one crossed                                                               

To adult’s hood,

At odds to reassess

Having understood,

The consequential blast

Of sociable harass,

As tide looks to run out

Of solitude portentous,

That may invite the solitary

To a more discerning class!

    • When solitude is self imposed for a period of reflection, long or short time span , it can be rewarding. But when it is imposed, upon or by circumstance, then we’ve another story, for another time. Jean-Jacques Fournier
