Maddening Reflections

Poem By RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Looking out windows, reflecting the room back at me is

Expecting to see the out of doors when looking out,
instead, seeing fluorescent lights shining back at me!

Trying to see what is outside this room, I look and see
the wall that is behind me!

Reflections can be maddening sometimes, as I recall, but
when shutting the lights off, it all resorts back to the
way it is to be.

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.


Leaves, branches, trees waving good-bye to me
and playing a beautiful symphony with the
gentle breeze.

Descriptive Poem

Tar sucking in warm rays of the sun.
Ivy crawling and clinging closely to a wire fence.
Brick buildings standing, feet apart, looking over the streets.
Flowers shooting out their beautiful colors to passers-by.
