Biography of RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Wishing to thank everyone for reading so many of my poems each and every day, you are the reason I am on this site! All of you are fantastic, great poets in your own right! Would greatly appreciate any comments you may have on my poetry, they are always a learning experience. Quite a few people have asked me to email them and have given their email addresses to me. My computer was hacked a year ago and I no longer have an email, and don't want to get another because of what happened. Please don't be offended, I would still like to hear from you. Just send me a message here on ph. and I will answer you here. Thank you for understanding.

Received a Certificate Of Appreciation in recognition of an important contribution to the ongoing fight against hatred and intolerance in America. My name has been added to the Wall of Tolerance in Montgomery, Alabama to provide inspiration to all those who choose to take a stand against hatred.

Won the Golden Poet Award five years in a row, am in Who's Who in Poetry. Have self-published 31 books of poetry. Twenty more books have just been proofread and I'll be self-publishing them soon. Also, have over 5,000 poems typed into the computer and need to print, proofread and sort them into books to be self-published.

Echoes Of Lost Love

Send me not away to death's distant shores -
let me wander endlessly forevermore.
Forget the dreams that can never be realized -
leave behind love's secret whisperings,
for none of them have meaning.
Racing along ocean shorelines,
feeling the pounding of it's waves knocking life down,
burying it beneath shifting sands.
Hiding in shells of envy and conceit, let friendship die also,

[Hata Bildir]
