One Single Impression: Empty

Empty,
Like alone,

Is good

It clears the way
For everything

Clears your eyes
So that they are open to
What comes

To fill the empty space,
To put an end to

Alone

For a time
Perhaps,

Clarifies and
Leaves you clean

And wide open

To embrace
Or not

As you wish.

Love what you will.
Find love as love finds you.

Call it good

And leave it be.

  3. No one says it better, Sandy! You always give me something to think about for the day and that's a good way to start every day! And being alone is different from being lonely, but the choice is yours. Enjoy your day!

  9. To be one with yourself..... you can be alone but not lonely. I think we all need alone time to recharge our batteries.
