RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Inner Island


Alive and flowing deep within this outer shell, a soul,
shy, timid, peers without.

Horizons beckoning with tantalizing, life-long fingers,
stretching towards destiny's lost shores.

Reminders of the past, swiftly speeding, portraying
life the way it's being lived today.

Sending forward, messages of hope, each new day ends
in prayer.

Peace residing, flowing deep within a soul, shy and
timid.

Beginning life again on a serene and talented inner
island.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
