Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Deep Abysses


Quietly cogitating alone in a corner, searching for
indescribable words to lighten a boring time.

Distinguishing lacy meanings and abstract ideas of
creativity, while watching dizzy visions spinning
in and out of subconscious reasoning.

Logic taking a back seat, because I feel so unreason-
able in my thinking today.

Unruly thoughts and quirky images turning my mind's
life in it's circumference, wrecking it's composure
and raking it into piles of poems for today's quest,
a never-ending filling of deep abysses, always
sitting within me.

When one seems to be totally full, I look and feel
around inside and find - no, I'm empty - I need more
to try and sate my being's mind.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
