Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

A Blanket


Silencing the energy inside, waiting to explore denizens brought to the foreground.
Standing away from the edge of a maze, trying not to divulge the way out, yet looking off to the side, wondering what to do on another period of stagnation.
Bringing ties of yesterday into a loom, weaving them all into a blanket that I can be hidden beneath.

    denizens.....i've heard of denizens of the deep, referring to sea monsters or some such. for me, this poem is a little too cryptic to enjoy, though the part about the maze had a hint of humor or devilment to it. [i thought i might have just made that word devilment up. i guess i've heard it before, but i doubt i've ever used it before. thanks for the opportunity, and]...... thanks for sharing your works. :) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
