Poem of the Week - 'Definition of Loneliness' by Octavian Paler

Definition of Loneliness

Beyond the wind
a bird with a bitter shadow
beats its wings,
burying seeds in shadow,
burying with every beat
the words mislaid by me.

This poem comes from Paler's collection Definitions, filled with poems on the definitions of subjects such as love, illusion, re-discovery, dignity, and regret. The collection follows a reflective journey, with the poem following this one titled 'Definition of Un-loneliness'. 

Definitions is available on our website
