headphones plug the ears
plastic, uncreated, knots
filling the senses

commercials of noise
popular melodies play
heard only by you

you have lost the truth
plugging your mind with blockades
keeping all away

a created myth
your solitude is shallow
holding only one

truth in solitude
can be found when together
you, me, and the source

separate is yours
solitude is mine to share
even when alone

The Haiku Challenge

P.S.  To everybody who visits and comments:  I really appreciate it deeply!  I am working on getting back to all the visitors who have left comments but I'm a little behind due to dear daughter's illness (strep).  I am looking forward to honoring your work!

    Truth in solitude.........two worlds solitude noise has very little reason to clash with our aloneness.

    Powerful energy within it ... everyone would benefit from learning to enjoy the gift of solitude rather than avoid it ... alas, it is easy to put off ... however, when the destination is reached ... "ahhh"! Thank you for sharing. becca

    Like everything, solitude goes two ways. It makes room for grace or closes the door on it. I really enjoyed this and your ability to take it as far as you did.
