Being Raised In Arizona - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

A small town Jersey girl, being raised in Arizona
starting at age eleven, leaving the garden state
of New Jersey behind for it's barren, stark desert
of Arizona.

Or so I thought at the time, now knowing better,
our desert being abundant, alive, vibrant and
enticingly beautiful.

Every sunrise and sunset sent straight from heaven
itself, spreading and flowing intense colors into
our beings.

Arizona is an awesome place to live, cacti every-
where, mountains completely surrounding my home in
Phoenix.

Majestic, steep and alluring, believing in many
possibilities an entirely wonderful life has given
poetically here in Phoenix, Arizona.
