Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Sololy Penetrating Peace

Dreaming of another land in another dimension where
I'm never sick again, being plied with the best of
Fearing nothing, taking steps to become famous and
wealthy, joining and walking finally into a sunrise
instead of eternal sunsets.
Totally being appreciated and woven into quilts of
exasperating stances left in life's quarters.
Taking back streets as sun shines all over me,
skipping into the essence of my being.
Solidly and sololy, penetrating the peace I know
will be coming over me with showers of glistening
fireworks and nothing marring the beautiful works
of my mind.
Thankful for the energy filling me even as I sit
here feeling so sick, yet the energy is taking me
finally into episodes of beautiful talent, leaving
me in fantasies of imagination.
Always staying in the presence of my being, wallowing
constantly in the peace of our Lord, and never
betraying any faith I may still have.
So many differences coming together with the liberty
and freedom of honest truthfulness.
Completing the one-time effervescent life that has
been mine since being born into this world.

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;
