Solitude with blowing wind;
Opens window of mind far wide.
Solitude with rumbles of cloud;
Breaks one's imagination in wafting bout.
Solitude with chirps of crickets;
Brings slumber quick in a cozy bed.
Solitude with fly-past of warblers;
Makes mind flying from horizon to horizon.
Solitude with raindrops on tin-roof;
Immerse one in lazy reverie abound.
Solitude with howling of foxes;
Breaks sweet dreams in wintry night.
Solitude with croaks of frogs;
Harbingers rain-shower thick on the ground.
Solitude with rustles of fallen leaves;
Imbibes one to ruminate over bygone days.
Solitude with full-moon night;
Brews in mind romance unbound.
Solitude with myriad silence around;
Takes a mind afloat in the void of space & time.
Solitude with waltzing waves of roaring sea;
Makes souls imbibes in myriad serenity.
Solitude with house rooster's shrill clarion;
Awakens dreamy soul at break of dawn.
Solitude with glistening dew-drops;
Leave one with sparking diamonds asunder.
Solitude with sparkling fireflies;
Enshrines mind shinning in flaming glows.
Solitude with fixing gaze at astral skies;
Takes a mind dipping in rhapsodic cosmic ocean.
O, Solitude, have you ever been on lap of mother solitude;
To grasp in mind what solitude is all about?
Nevertheless, solitude ferments bliss unbridled
That comforts flickering mind rest in unbound tranquility.
