It is a joy to share that my poem, The Art of Loneliness, has been published in Volume Seven, Chapter Ten of Visual Verse’s ongoing monthly anthology of stories and precious words.
Each month Visual Verse provides an image and gives writers one hour to write a piece inspired by the monthly prompt. As Visual Verse so proudly states, “One image, one hour, 50-500 words. The picture is the starting point, the text is up to you.”
As some of you may have noticed, Nin Chronicles has changed a little! I recently added a little background color and I also bought myself a domain name. I am so proud that ninchronicles.com is now a star I hold in my hands. The pride is real!
Blogging is about community. When we share our writing, we are never alone, be it with silent friends or fellow writers who share their thoughts. With so many people craving community, there is some stigma surrounding the idea that some of us enjoy being alone.
I personally love a little solitude; it opens up space for conversations with myself. The Art of Loneliness came out of one such conversation with myself, so I invite you to contemplate the meaning of being alone.
You can dance in a field
Of poppies burned from the sun
And still not be free . . .
Please continue reading here and feel free to share your beautiful thoughts!
