Alone Not Adrift

Waiting here

Alone, not adrift.

Anchored by


Endless turquoise sky above.

Sequestered by stone.

Strength from ruins,

Not just cast away,

But waiting.

Not vacant,

But occupied in searching,

Consoled by stillness.

Inspired by the Creative Challenge “Alone” based on this quote:

“Alone had always felt like an actual place to me, as if it weren’t a state of being, but rather a room where I could retreat to be who I really was.” — Cheryl Strayed
