Alone, To Say

By

Alone, does not mean abandoned!
Alone, means sometimes,
we do not need to look
with everyday lenses.
Alone, means just a bit more
because next
we’ll be counting a hand full
and then one more.

Alone is just a word.
Like a marigold,

It can be just one mode,
a way of saying
I am here, we are here.
We have always been!

Alone is just a word.
Like a marigold,

It can be just one mode,
a way of saying
I am here, we are here.
We have always been!.
