Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Pockets Of Reason


Dancing forgiveness together, placating desires within,
of lonely fears.

Forward-looking, seeing an uncertain future dressed
already in lacy tears, timidly wondering how much
longer life would exist on horizons of tomorrow.

Strings of fear played decidedly in hours of loneliness,
rhythmically meted out onto distant waverings of unkempt
thoughts.

Feeling deeply in pockets of reasoning and logic, it
doesn't render an answer or truth, so holding hands,
arms embraced, dancing forgiveness together, momentarily
forgetting about life's shortcomings and reservations.
