A Pen’s Expression

Poetry, expression to share
hidden in an eternal hall;
written with emotional flair
poems safe in a journal’s wall.

Emotions mentally engaged
poetry, expression to share,
line by line gives birth to a page
ink drying on paper with care.

Words conveyed so one is aware
secrets told a revealing way,
poetry, expression to share
calls you hear what words may say.

A poet’s world is a gentle way
composed with compassionate care,
words penned forever and a day
poetry, expression to share.
- Rhoda Galgiani
A Rhyme Form of Poetry is the pattern of rhyming lines in a poem or in lyrics for music
It is usually referred to by using letters to indicate which lines rhyme - For example abab indicates a four-line stanza in which the first and third lines rhyme, as do the second and fourth lines...rg

Hi Rhoda. You are absolutely right.... "poetry is expressions to share." You share your expressions so well. Pens have expressions too; the expressions that we allow them to create through us. Enjoyed reading this as I enjoy all of your work. Thanks for sharing and continued blessings in all you do! -MJ

Thank you Maurice for your kind words. Your support always lifts me up to a higher level. Expression is within us all, but most can't put their thoughts on paper and they remain hidden. Sad - for so much that is buried should come out to be shared with others. My heart thanks you for being a loyal supporter...rg

Love this Rhoda! The rhyme works well to convey your thoughts. The first stanza grabbed my attention right away. Keep up the good writing my friend.
