Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Avenues Of Visions


Sanguine roses, dripping in mind with the blood of
their thorns as they puncture inner thoughts with
their exasperating attitudes.

Lying in rows of expectancy, hoping to find the way
through turmoil exacted upon them in life.

Following avenues of visions, being led into dimensional
depths of nepotism's blindness by people, ignorant of
the grief they are causing.

Sanguine roses, dripping in this mind, flowing out onto
the ground of demise.

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;
