Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Vases Of Time


Empty-sounding promises die on limbs of deadened trees.
Echoing forever down trunks, repeating phrases of sound
endlessly.
Jarring memories in vases of time, watering them at
inopportune hours, so they may live bittersweetly and
happily forever.
Bubbling into atmospheres of archaic cloud formations,
stretching themselves elastically into many years to come.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
