Poem: Still Loneliness NaPoWriMo #16

Loneliness is a crying newborn

Wanting only to be picked up

And held

Still loneliness

About the poem:

I love Thich Nhat Hahn’s advice to notice an uncomfortable emotion, then go to it like a mother to a crying baby. Pick it up and embrace it. That alone may allow feeling better. Later, there may be some fixing but not now. Just pick the baby up and hold her close.
