The Art of Loneliness


Serious
practitioners
know how
to make
it new.

(first publication)

Note: This poem was inspired by the brief exchange of comments following my November Postcard entry. I like the idea of there being an Artist of the Lonely — a person whose exploration takes him deep into the heart of loneliness and far from its mundane practical applications, thereby shattering the wretched assumptions and negative connotations by which it is so commonly maligned.


Dreams: Another added to the Annandale Dream Gazette (part of 11-18-08 entry).

Update:
“The Art of Loneliness” added to Poems, Slightly Used.
