©Stealth of Solitude

By BR Chitwood


These moments come

Where solitude settles

Softly, sweetly  serene

Upon  the selfless air.


In this quaint quietude

Along passive trails

The thoughts tumble

In silent speculation,


Memory peacefully pulses

With long ago reverie

Of loves and memories –

Treasures lost to time.


Slowly, a silent smile

Wistful in its pose

Is joined by tears in

Slow and tender descent.


Then, a distant doorbell ring,

Stealing these moments,

Displacing this  golden,

Tender Cache from me.


Time, relentless, constant,

Bringing dreams and joy,

Capriciously at its pleasure

Giving and taking away…

  4. Well done, Sir. As JD said, I guess we’ve all had time for our thoughts to tumble. Some of us, I think, have minds that ramble and roam almost all of the time. My best to you and yours.
