I Guess I Like Being Alone

Being here, I see the heavens.

Night sky is clear and still.

Fleeting images, a meteor shower, penetrates the big black canopy.

A quiet stands in my mind:  no thought or light.

I start to shake in the cold night air.

Time passages, space vestiges are dots in the sky.

Will I dissolve like time and space?

Or will I stand still for eternity?

Why can’t I see anybody?

Why am I alone?

I am lonely, but this feeling is not hot or cold.

My feeling lingers, then fades away.

Night will fade and brighten into day.

I will go out today and see my family and friends.

This too will pass.

I will pass someday.

All alone.
