I woke this morning
lauding my self
for living here
at ease for
Canine home mates
have also lived here
some of this time,
with few humans
ever stopping by.
I applaud humans
that appear to be
not just needing,
in longer term
is not lonely
So, this morning I woke
with these two words
Solitude & Presence
I looked them up.
Solitude: the state of being or living alone.
Right now and 5+ years of the 24 years,
there has been one heartbeat resident
on the premises, so I know solitude.
Presence: the state or fact of existing,
occurring or being present in a place
or thing (and many other definitions).
A more difficult one to fully fathom.
I may be present with the garden
or I may be thinking about lunch
while working within the garden.
Do both states reveal presence?
Please help me with this one.
