RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Just a quick note, there's a person who keeps using different names and trashing my poetry, mainly because

Popular Poems
Life's Black Curtains
Lost and alone, thoughts at a distance, heart heavy
with sorrow.

Touched deeply by your life, not wanting to let go,
Winter Cold
Spring is here, yet winter has not left us.
It's a time for blossoms to come forth - but they are freezing
from the cold.
Look out a window and see the bright sun shining everywhere,
Men! ! ! !
Men lament that they have no time to do things
needed being done.

Yet, they sit wasting time, watching T.V. for
Leaves, branches, trees waving good-bye to me
and playing a beautiful symphony with the
gentle breeze.
A Blessing From God
Quietly whispering tunes in imagination,
letting them flow outward into snow-filled memories,
sliding across on a sled big enough to hold all six
of us sisters.

(cont.) ...if even 66.6 % percent of what i've heard about her life is true (some enviable, some not) , she has had an amazing life! ! the one thing i 'can't believe'...[[ but......i do believe ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE in this and other worlds ]] that she REALLY died and went to Heaven! ok, maybe it happened, in which case Meryl Streep could play the part in the movie; they are almost exactly the same age.

Dear RoseAnn these are times in world events and in your personal life which challenge the hope and affirmation your poems have expressed with such fidelity for much longer than I have known them. And these dark events have not silenced you but I can sense the effort you must summon to accomplish each of your poetic beacons. Your poems go far beyond self-expression, they are gifts to others. In one of the 13th century GRAIL QUEST poems we are given a warning and a blessing: HERE IS THE BOOK OF THY DESCENT: HERE BEGIN THE TERRORS. HERE BEGIN THE MIRACLES. We are never alone even in the worst era: dangers are balanced by miracles.
