Biography of RoseAnn V. Shawiak

****Very Important message to poets! ****
Tushar is fighting with his strong mind, body, spirit. Still in the hospital on life support and needs the prayers of everyone in the world, especially the poets here on poemhunter. Please continue to pray for his full recovery! Thank you very much for all your prayers so far, they are definitely helping him, he needs your continued prayers however. Prayers will prove that doctors are not God. Thank you, RoseAnn

My dearest friend, Tushar Ray, a poet here on ph, is in need of everyone's prayers. Please pray for him as he is going through some severe medical problems. Thank you all for adding your prayers to mine. I appreciate it and am very grateful to all of you. RoseAnn

Wishing to thank everyone for reading so many of my poems each and every day, you are the reason I am on this site! All of you are fantastic, great poets in your own right! Would greatly appreciate any comments you may have on my poetry, they are always a learning experience. Quite a few people have asked me to email them and have given their email addresses to me. My computer was hacked a year ago and I no longer have an email, and don't want to get another because of what happened. Please don't be offended, I would still like to hear from you. Just send me a message here on ph. and I will answer you here. Thank you for understanding.

Received a Certificate Of Appreciation in recognition of an important contribution to the ongoing fight against hatred and intolerance in America. My name has been added to the Wall of Tolerance in Montgomery, Alabama to provide inspiration to all those who choose to take a stand against hatred. Presented by: Morris Dees, Founder, Southern Poverty Law Center

Won the Golden Poet Award five years in a row, am in Who's Who in Poetry. Have self-published 31 books of poetry. Twenty more books have just been proofread and I'll be self-publishing them soon. Also, have over 5,000 poems typed into the computer and need to print, proofread and sort them into books to be self-published. Right now I'm behind in putting 70 handwritten books of poems into the computer in book form and then proof and sort them into books also.

Alone Rooted

Looking out into the darkness of night, seeing lights
shining upon a tree, bare, no leaves left upon it.

It's limbs reaching into the darkened sky, trying to
find out where they have gone to.

Only an emptiness comes upon it, nothing changing as
it forlornly stands alone.

[Hata Bildir]
