Where can the mind find solitude today
when even in the most remote locations
I can activate my phone to connect
through social networks to vast world wide web
of dreaming minds who can express their thoughts
through poems and photographs they post online?
Whether driving highways with zooming cars,
walking crowded sidewalks in urban zones,
picking apples or corn in rain-soaked fields,
or climbing rugged mountain slopes to touch
untouchable sky of timeless desire,
I breathe deep air that swirls from singing plants
and feel my soul expand perceptive love
and taste nourishing bliss of solitude.
