Someone is Waiting...

Happy moments will come for
one who longs to hear your voice
words spoken remain in their heart

As one ages family is so important
but, the youth forgets the old
who sits alone within their walls

A call takes but a moment
your ‘hello’ to a lonely person lingers
slowing their world not to move so fast

Take a moment to call a family member
for your call will be so well received
change the communication with -

love in your heart for one who
waits to hear your voice

Take a Moment

I am here beside you
sing your own song
lay down people you
carried so long
let it be ~

Own Given Strength...

A spring breeze touches my shoulder
as if to say, come walk with me
through a meadow of calm, not to
worry about what’s around the bend
 For all shall come to keep one safe
with faith that is carried deep within
knowing problems may arise today
but, conquered in tomorrow’s plan
 Peace in one’s heart feels thy grace
guiding one along the path of change
moments in time when concern of a
task that might overwhelm the body -
 An inspiration touches my cheek as He whispers,
‘ye shall tread on with one’s own given strength’…

Desire in a Stone

Shadows shorten the day
where color of green grass
shall be lost – rooted in stone
desire shan’t lose it green

 Questions upon ones lips
as the mind searches
the depth of anothers
soul for the truth as
one craves reality

Moonlight Portrait

God painted nature’s glory
bordered with palms and sand
aromas from the sea
captivating His masterpiece

With Faith...

Drawing: The Weeping Willow Tree

The evening is grim
with shadows that whisper
quietly amongst themselves,
secrets of the darkened night
hidden in the outline of a willow
Silent is the moment as
currents stir with movement,
buzzing along the curvatures of
the foliage lined path that longs
to live beyond their dark haven

Can’t light come to thee?
Can’t streams of bright beckoned
suddenly appear for the moment?
Can’t in an instant there be a promise?
A light to shine for tomorrow?
I shan’t be bewildered for it is
with faith my answer is - yes!

God’s spring replenished
life of brown winter -
Treasures of life coat
seeds reborn from heaven -
A season of rain provides

To Know Him

He spoke to me in a whisper
asked me to write His name
ever so gently spread the love
that brings Him to blessed fame

He spoke to me in a silent room
before my eyes fell to sleep
reminding me of His love
dries my tears whenever I weep

He spoke to me a voice in my mind,
as I remember with heart and soul
peaceful moments I share His grace
to forever love Him is my goal

A Day of Joy

Rainbow touched the sleepy valley below
Yellow streams within cast its glow
Bringing love to all who live there
Share their lives with someone who cares

Planting tulips with ruby red tips
As if the flower was touched by ones lips
Colorful blooms for all to enjoy
Brings happiness to every girl and boy

Evening comes slow but sure
Ends the day with love that is pure
As lovers wish upon a shooting star
Dreams of happiness will take them far

Knowing deep in our hearts we
shall come around again in time
we salvage what truth is for we
shall draw upon it twice as much

Knowing deep in our minds
faith is the key to our sanity
we lean to those who bring us
safety with their heartfelt love

Knowing deep in our beings
a sanction is waiting to comfort
leading us to a light of fulfillment

and joy with others who know - Him

Dusty roads of a rural town
clogged airways, cell phone down
modern times talking to a box
his mind locks

Wash One Clean ~ For Tomorrow

Sensation penetrates the troubled mind
as if to sooth, to comfort the turmoil of
conflict that came before the darkened brow

Life of confidence, of one’s serenity is
shattered just for the moment at hand
a moment that is taken for granted in life

Ray of light shows a stumble is one’s road
bringing one to their knees just for an instant
not forever as the saddened mind would suggest

Life has its woes that brings one to shed tears
something tells the dark heart not to worry
God’s there to wash one clean for tomorrow

Hidden Thoughts

Hidden thoughts tackle feelings
sealed eyes not seeing its task
angels protect the soul as
thoughts rush to come out

A Happier Road

Where does my heart lie?
Somewhere in the past
Dormant sleep with sadness
Happiness doesn’t seem to last
Thoughts of yesteryear
Slowly come my way
As if to bring me silent peace
Past is Ok whispers seem to say
Life lessons have many meanings
Put your thoughts in a tight row
Disregard all harmful waves
Grasp memories and keep them in tow
For life is what you chose to create
No need to carry that heavy load
Rearrange and adjust your day
Seek your path to a happier road

Kitty Rescue


Mai Ling (L), Max (C), Gracie (R)

My Kitty got out one frigid day
Six months old she ran away
 She was gone so worried was I
Calling her and looking low and high
 Then one night I heard a sorrowful cry
There she was in a tree sixty feet high
 The temperature was low I think twenty four
I was scared this Kitten would fall to the floor
 Panic set in, what was I to do, I didn’t know
I couldn’t climb that tree, being old and so -
 I called the Fire Department of our local town
Fifteen young men came to help my Kitty down
 Quickly up the tree the young man went
Talking to her quietly she looked at him content
 He grabbed her tucking her close to his chest
Bringing her down safely, knowing she was a mess
 The first Kitty rescued by our town’s Firemen
Lucky Kitty a feline who committed this sin
 She looked at her Hero and gave a purring song
As if to say, I was scared…so what took you so long?
 - Rhoda Galgiani
Author's Note:
This is a true story of my Kitty Mai Ling in 2009 - I then found
Gracie as a Kitten and she had Asthma, so Mai Ling was adopted
by my close friend as I wasn't allowed to own 3 Kitties (I still had
Max at that time). The young Firemen in Patchogue, NY on LI were
on a training exercise and happy to help. Mai Ling now 9, Gracie 7
are doing well and are happy. Max passed in 2014 age 18 yrs. old...rg

I Long to Say...

I long to say ~ what is within a word,
a word that says what I show
with loyalty, with light
always a part of His glow
I long to say ~ what is within a book,
a book that says what I am
with faith, with spirit
always a part of His world
I long to say ~ what is within a song,
a song that sings a story
with harps, with joy
always a part of His word ~
that is a lyric waiting

Wildlife, a Slow Disappearance

I won't even begin to show you the hundreds
of pictures of dead animals from our oil slicks...rg
There comes a time in ones life when
all around them doesn’t matter anymore,
peace is all that one really is concerned with,
as one dreams beautiful dreams of their lives.

The world today is moving so fast, spinning
on its titled axle of grief with the oil slick of
the mass ocean and the starving of the fowl,
sadly man has overstepped his bounds.

Quiet moment is a luxury today as the hustle
and bustle of metal movement surrounds the
human who walks upright above the animals
who try to survive our over produced world.

Centuries ago we join them only to destroy
their nests, to take from them the innocents
of their lives within our humanly paths,
taking from them their breath and freedoms.

Man and their selfish acts have hindered the beauty
of this planet, continually destroying the natural
habitat that was ordained to be their world, planned
for their comfort during a lifetime here on earth -

a lifetime when wildlife should not be
fearful of man’s technology.

Time Waits

Wait - for time will heal
untrusting hours of dismay
thoughts of interest shall renew
as old love regains lost affair
