Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

A Solo Journey Ended


Flying through life encapsulated in a tunnel,
foraging for love and nurturance.
Finding someone, not wanting to let go, deciding
a course to take, then discarding it.
Taking care of and sheltering, coming closer,
intimately growing farther together.
Finally realizing a stretch of life is lonely,
empty, begin searching for what you have not found.
Freely traveling until meeting someone you have
dreamed of.
Holding hands, walking together, finding many
similarities and life gets quieter, more serene.
Finalizing plans within your mind, taking their
hand, looking deeply into eyes for questioning
answers.
Silently pleading, finding your voice finally, you
know in your heart, love must be expressed before
it is lost forever.
Asking solemnly, will you marry me?
Seeing an answer of joyful yesses before a voice is
heard saying anything.
Life moves on to heavenly bliss, found here on earth
as you and she get married.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
