Introvert bliss

what do you see #38

Oh quiet one,
Are those wonders that glisten in your eyes,
Won’t you share the stories within

Solitude
A timid mind’s bliss
Where mysteries unravel
And adventure stirs within the soul
As shyness wanes, courage takes control
And the inner spirit calls
Come to me it says
Come be free

Can you see?
Those curved ancient stairs
Winding to your tower of dreams
Its slate-gray hue on a backdrop of blue
Can you smell that rich fresh air
washed through silver mountains of hope
How exciting your mind is
When you are alone
When spirit calls

,

Old wizened spirit
To be alone is to heed your call
My introvert bliss


Being alone can be really soothing.

But too much solo time means we miss out on extending experience and learning from others.

Stay safe, stay dreaming, stay involved.

    *sigh* Very beautiful piece, Jude, it resonates with me. Spending time with your mind is a super relaxing and necessary but I also like what you say in the footnote, we do miss out on extending experience and learning from others.

      Thank you so much Bubble. I also like to get lost in my own world but thankfully some friends pull me back into reality, sometimes by force, but I don’t regret it

  4. Beautiful uptake! Solitude is truly an escape from busy lives. Just unplugging from the world like that. โœจโœจ

    Beautifully captured the feel of the image. Solitude can be soothing and enlightening. But there is no match for living the life.

    As an introvert I can really relate to this and to what you said at the end because sometimes we are so into our own daydreams that we miss out experiences in the real world.

    Enchanting… a mage kind of like Merlin – though Merlin had his ward in the future king ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Used to be very introverted, that’s what got me started into writing, then I flip-flopped. Now though I think it is a good time to be an introvert again – as long as one has ‘a true pod’ of people to interact with. And blogging helps ๐Ÿ˜€
