Biography of RoseAnn V. Shawiak

A personal note to everyone, surgery I was supposed to have was cancelled 4 times now. Finally will be having it next Wednesday, Feb.15, at 11: 00 a.m. It is a very serious and complex surgery, I am a very high risk patient, my surgeon will do everything possible to keep me alive, odds are not too good, but with everyone's prayers from around the world, I believe God will listen and let me live a while longer. Eventually I will need 11 surgeries, last will be a liver transplant. I love you all, take care of yourselves, hope to be back here on ph soon as I can. Am trying to post everything I've written so far, still behind one whole journal full. Amitava Sur, a poet on ph is my closest friend, I will ask him to keep everyone informed of my condition. RoseAnn

Good news and not so good news, my book, " A Bereaved Poet" has been published here in the U.S. and is doing very well here in Phoenix, Arizona.

My publisher in Africa said that my book is now on Amazon in Africa, not sure how people from U.S. can buy my book, will find out. It's call " The Zones Of Pleasure" . (no it's not erotic! Ha Ha!) It will take some time, but 1,960 of my poetry books will be published in Africa. As I continue to write even more will be published. Thank you for your patience, encouragement and support, I totally appreciate and value you and your comments. Thank you, RoseAnn V. Shawiak, a mere poet.

Posting poetry written in and about India here on ph, hope you like it, would love to hear your comments on it. Will get back to reading everyone's poetry soon, have been in and out of the hospital so please bear with me. Thank you for your encouragement and prayers.

Wishing to thank everyone for reading so many of my poems each and every day, you are the reason I am on this site! Would greatly appreciate any comments you may have on my poetry, they are always a learning experience.
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. Right now I'm behind in putting 70 handwritten books of poems into the computer in book form and then proof and sort them into books also.

The sadness is so deep, nothing can soothe it.
Nothing can touch it.
The emptiness is so total - nothing can penetrate it.
All eight of us children and Dad can feel it each on our own.
Yet, even we can't ease the pain for each other.
Nothing has ever felt this way before.
And nothing is all we have to look forward to with Mom gone.
