Ruins Of Regret

Poem By RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Ruins of regret sift themselves in untimely rest,
offering misspent hopes and dreams, dying beneath
a capsized boat.

All of life is mesmerized by the complaining lull
brought on by strife.

Outlasting everything that is unimportant, reality
rows off shore and quietly watches swimmers
negligently drowning under huge waves swallowing
them forever.

Tempting lips of fate, intense desire purloining
the coasts of unswept lust.

Pressed beneath the weight, softly prodded, relent-
lessly forcing itself upon the shortened skirts of
sand.

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.

Insight

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.
