As writers, many of us seek Solitude because of our need for quiet while we write. Sometimes our very temperaments demand that we find a place of solitude in which to refresh or to regroup our swirling thoughts.
A college student appears to seek solitude on this lonely levee path. I wonder what she is thinking as she leaves the campus for the day? Notice her bright pink wellies!
“I have never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude.” Henry David Thoreau
On perhaps a lighter note, there is something very lonely about this lizard…look closely.
A few years ago, on top of my friend’s roof in Mexico, I found this poor lizard, or what’s left of him. Looking for a sunny spot, he got stuck in the fresh paint, prompting this haiku.
Lizard seeking warmth
The ultimate solitude
Ever in the sun
