RoseAnn V. Shawiak (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)
Reflections of ebony mirror hearts drenched in grief's embrace, undisclosed mercurial tears falling into pools
of images where memories never seem to drown, no matter
how high sorrow's fluids rise.
Like technicolor rainbows arcing across the skies, prisms
are collecting heartaches from this day forward.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
If this were not so, he would not know it's meaning.
His heart would not recognize it's own feelings of love.
