Loneliness

Good afternoon everyone, Happy Throwback Thursday!

Today we travel back to last February (almost a year!) to revisit my poem “Loneliness”. It recalls a time during my Year Abroad six years ago when I was feeling overwhelmingly low and lonely. A lot can be said for the mental benefits of companionship, friendship, communication and general human contact, particularly when you are on your own in a foreign country. Fortunately, much has changed in six years!

As sad as its theme is, I like this poem. Let me know what you think! 🙂

Until you have been abandoned

By your one thread of sanity

In a cacophony of unfamiliarity

Music Box – A Haiku

 

The notes that pour from

My music box heart form a

Plaintive melody.

This will likely be my last post before I disappear on holiday for a week – in case anyone wonders about my absence! I can’t wait to swap the brisk British weather for some scintillating Spanish sunshine 🙂 See you all in October!
