Solitude Acrostic

Staying true to each other,

Overcoming problems

Lingering in ourselves,

Installing hope for others,

Taking their troubles away,

Understanding their worries

Dragging them down that shows

Ever increasing solitude with them.

    Great emotion in here dear Andy, you are so lucky to belong to a poetry club, it must be such a joy. 💖

    • Goldfinch60

      Thank you Teddy, yes it is great fun, we are meeting on Zoom at present but we hope to go back face to face in January.

      Good write Gold.
      'I want to be alone'. Just call me Great (Garbo).
      Being alone, and experiencing solitude, may not be exactly the same things though.

      • Goldfinch60

        Thanks Orchi.

        Solitude is also helping to keep others together in hope that all agree with a just cause.

        quite possibly the most stand alone acrostic I've come across in a very long time ........................................ N

      • Fay Slimm.

        A wonderfully positive acrostic based on Solitude - so good your poetry group is still in operation dear Andy.

      • dusk arising

        Soilitude, that much misunderstood word. Solidity of will and purpose stands out in your words.

      • Paul Bell

        I suppose you've got to get it all in prospective. A bit of togetherness, a bit of solitude to regain your thoughts.

      • Garth Rakumakoe

        An acquired delight, solitude is. Not for everyone. I'm quite certain though, many of us here get exactly what it means. A powerful write. Kudos to you, Andy.

      • L. B. Mek

        an eclectic blend of hope and surrender
        that exemplifies the true turmoil, in solitude's nature
        a very intriguing concept, Andy

      • spilleronsheet

        So well defined
        The word has so many emotions inside
        A simple word in dictionary but for a poet it maybe a book telling a life
        Well crafted dear Andy
