Solitudinal Saint

Solitudinal centering reaching the core
Internalizing peace first suffering some more
Pushing past the ego dropping value of things
Seeking total wellness and the good that it brings

Start at the beginning given all that we need
Forsaking worldly goods while planting loving seeds
One man’s liberation another man’s restraint
Risking ridiculing Solitudinal saint

  2. Love the last two lines — how true that liberation may appear foolish to some. Reminds me of Francis of Assisi. Very nice!

    • That piece has been on the burners a long time. I unjumble by writing one or two sentences and if it goes blank I hit save and come back later. Thanks for the comment and the visit Charles!
