Alone

I sit in the darkness of my own shadow.

With the bright light of others filtered out, for a moment I don’t know where to turn, which way to go, who I am.

Alone with my own being, fear is gradually replaced with Spaciousness.

Space gives way to Clarity.

In the clarity I find peace,

Able to rely on me,

Trust me,

Know my way,

without others to inform me.

Alone I choose to be still,

to notice the internal motions of my being,

making the journey alone,

far from lonely.

Cloaked

Whether by myself or with many,

Warm or cold,

In a place familiar or the unknown,

At the moment I begin to feel disconnected,

I wrap myself in my memories and experiences,

The times when I felt or longed for love,

And those precious moments I encountered,

even if just briefly,

the unconditional essence of my being,

Always there, all ways there.

Cloaked in this love, I am never alone.
