At dVerse Mish is hosting poetics with an invitation to write a poem using three words or more from a selection. My choices are: Orenda (mystical force), Querencia (place from where strength is drawn) and Isolophilia (preference fro solitude).
dVerse Poets - Poetics - There's a word for that "They simply never understand, do they, that sometimes solitude is one of the most beautiful things on earth?" Charles Bukowski
Beyond This Moment Orenda down the slopes of mountain minds and valley redoubts of no intention, comes opportunity, that moment of desire, a la querencia, the turning of soul for home in a quietude of frame, longing in sighs for an end to rivers of noise while rejoicing in shivers of gaze, a patient isolophilia that sits so lightly it slips easily past our defences and undoes the palisades of the heart, inviting dreams and other worlds.
