Solitude – Your Weekly Poetry Prompt 12/4/2020

Solitude is when you push the world away.
Isolation is when the world pushes you away.
A simple reversal of energy is all that separates the two.
-from Monday Morning Memo 4/27/2015

Or, thinking about this year’s restrictions:

  • Self-aware people experienced solitude and emerged from it less fixated on the outward trappings of success, and more concerned about the quality of their relationships and their inner lives.
  • Persons unwilling to examine themselves experienced isolation and are filled with anxiousness about things returning to “how they used to be.”
