RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

A Being Alone


Stripping aside, aspects of personality and character,
what is left, but a being, alone, forgotten in a pose
of existence.

Talent forging slowly ahead as songs are composed and
played in orchestras of one.

Sounds, tones, perfectly united, steps towards eternity
beginning here on earth.

    This is beautiful. A real meaning of what it is to be pure, innocent and untouched. Everything from here on is new and part of the song of life. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
