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 Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
