Sit With Me

I thought I wished for a seat of solitude 
forever happy to be in introverted silence
to be comfortable alone in the nowhere
finding solace at the epicenter of singular.


I sat seeking liberation from the world
distracted by conversation of the wind
carrying happiness from a playground
I felt lonely in the world of others’ sounds.


How I wished you could share my mind
hear our words speaking of the beauty
reaching to the meeting of sea and sky
our voices exploring the horizon and beyond.
