Tanka Poem – Inner Thoughts


Amidst quiet woods,

Solitude wraps me in peace,

Nature's song unfolds.

In stillness, I find my soul,

Lost in the world of my own.


Solitude, my friend,

In your quiet, tears may flow,

Sadness finds its home.

Yet, within your gentle space,

I heal, and hope may yet grow.


Limerick Poem- Value Of Loneliness


In solitude, lessons we glean,

A value in loneliness is seen.

Through quiet reflection,

We find self-connection,

In the stillness, we grow and convene.


In loneliness, there's much to gain,

A chance for self-discovery, no pain.

Reflect, introspect, and grow,

richly benefits often do show,

In the quiet, one's wisdom can reign!


Elegy Poem- My Wounded Soul


In solitude, I found my wounded soul,

A heart in fragments, an ache that took its toll.

Yet, in the silence, I began to mend,

To heal the wounds, to find myself again.


The lonely nights, the tears I cried,

Became the canvas where my strength applied.

I stitched my pieces, one by one,

In solitude's embrace, my healing was done.


From darkness to light, I slowly arose,

A stronger spirit, my inner strength exposed.

Solitude, my friend, you showed the way,

To heal, to grow, to face a brand-new day.


In your quiet embrace, I found my grace,

And from the depths of loneliness, I found my place.

So, here's my elegy, a tribute to your art,

Solitude, my healer, you mended my broken heart.

Haiku Poem- Desparately Lonely


Loneliness descends,

Desperation's silent cry,

Seeking light within.


Desperately alone,

Echoes in the silent void,

Seeking a kind soul.
