In Solitude With Others

He loves immersing himself in solitude —
a place far from the madding multitude.

Not alone, he cavorts with writers galore
and experiences diverse thoughts to explore

in articles, poetry, fiction and non-fiction books,
essays and wandering other literary nooks.

He’ll set the writers aside anytime he wants,
(they aren’t offended)
reflecting on their thoughts hoping to ensconce

wisdom, from up-and-comers to old masters.
Such rumination evokes tears and laughter.

Sometimes in a crowd he can be quite lonely
but in reading and contemplation,
his is a solitude that feels almost holy.
