Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

A Humbled Road


Leaves waving and dangling into my mind while driving down
Scottsdale Road.
Eyes resting quietly, gently on birds of paradise as this
journey takes me ever closer to Tempe, Arizona.
Traffic steadily building itself into snarls, blocking all
roads and coming to a halt in the middle of a Friday morning
rush hour.
