Alone

I was struck by the ending of Phylor’s poem.

I wonder how you would you finish the sentence

“Sometimes when I’m alone”?

:P1020687

alone

by Phylor  

Sometimes when I’m alone

I slip a disc into the “boom box”

And dance around the kitchen.

**********

Sometimes when I’m alone

IPod nano set to shuffle

I’ll walk for hours, for miles

**********

Sometimes when I’m alone

I pretend to be another me

Singer, actress, novelist, historian, educator

**********

Sometimes when I’m alone

I listen to the zillions of tiny noises

That makes up the sea of sounds and souls

**********

Sometimes when I’m alone

I look up into the night

And see a million, billion, trillion stars

**********

Sometimes when I’m alone

The computer keys fly by

The screen fills with strings of words

**********

Sometimes when I’m alone

I close my eyes

And see universes

**********

Sometimes when I’m alone

I’m alone

I’m alone

  1. Oops – thought for sure I’d hit comment — usually then the comment shows up waiting for moderation.
    So, in case it disappeared: I’m honoured you shared my poem and I think your art captures the idea/state of aloneness (not loneliness). For those who don’t know about Keith and carryon Tuesday http://carryontuesdayprompt.blogspot.com, a prompt from Keith (from literature, music, etc) is posted on the weekend, and then the idea is to use some or all the of prompt in a piece of prose or poetry. #194 = Alone had the prompt Sometimes when I’m alone, I cry.

  2. Judy, your work today inspired me to write this, for you really are an Artist
    extraordinaire.

    quiet and alone
    armed with imagination
    you create beauty

    you are the artist
    who’s work should be on display
    for the world to see

    When alone Phylor
    inspires you to take pen
    to write, take brush to color

  3. I loved the line “I listen to the zillions of tiny noises

    That makes up the sea of sounds and souls”

    Solitude is must sometimes.

  4. Beautiful poem..

    Well I will for myself end it like….because I have felt being two…I and my ‘self’..so it will be:

    When I am alone
    I want to be one;..
    I want to be one..

    RS:)

  5. Kudos to both of you. I too was struck by the last 3 lines, beautifully written Phy, sad but so descriptive as well as the others. The painting Judith, fits Phy’s poetry perfectly. What a lovely combination. Great work from both of you!
