Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

A Blink Of The Mind


Wordlessly collapsing against blank walls, images
come to life instantly in a blink of the mind.

Becoming the creative force of writing incessantly,
without any blocks or barriers to mar the way.

Totally engrossed, enraptured by the immensity of
creative thought, dallying daily in it's peaceful
surroundings.

Coming to life interiorly, blending with my spirit
in fountains of blossoming words, becoming what I
see in words and meanings, for moments in time.

Allowing myself freedom to exist and be, afraid of
nothing, fulfilling inner spirits with contemplative
graces from God above.

Lying spiritually in His arms forever, using gifts
He has given me from the moment of conception.

Writing as I fulfill the purpose He has given me to
share with this world until I meet Him in the next.

    Loved it Roseann, loved the expression. But don't stop your writing even after meeting Him. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
