Unseen Presence

 Music lost
Silence touches flute
Sound within the mute
Nature waits - then came
Harmonious breath of sound
By untouched hands

Season's Style

Tree sways in Winter Breeze

Breath of winter breeze
commands a coming freeze
snow bows in winter white
hovers in heaven’s light -
ice crystals cling

Nothing Single

Two look at the moon
Grasping the world together
In a moment of love
With his maiden fair
Joined today

Love Died Like Wilted Flower

Love lost in a moment’s breath
Confusion filled the moist air not expected
Mind becomes full, thoughts of death
Sparrow’s sighed while loving heart was rejected

Pain filled the lonesome late hour
Dark and gloom overtook the promise broken
Love died like wilted flower
Taken by one, the heart buries vows spoken

Alone, no sweet dreams of you
Midnight hour comes to one with heavy heart
Night drifts by, color deep blue
We two must forever step away and part

Time will heal a broken soul
As faith sustains one who can see their own light
Love will bring a brand new goal
Next time love comes to my heart it will be right

One learns from past mistakes and character flaws
Which is a good thing, don’t go back to what was

Suddenly -
a touch brought
the frown to a smile
without warning the
stranger turned it around -
epidemic now shall spread

Mother Nature Smiles

Ah, Mother Nature

Snow, she comes again
with a cold wind
wrapping a chill
around whatever, whoever
stands within her path

Flakes of crystal design
covers, hides, burying all is
her sole desire - she is a storm
created of fury that displays
a winter wonderland

Degrees over time drop as
snowflakes lay themselves down,
covers with a blanket of white
burying the existing floor
that is our earth’s foundation

Upon its pass, the glorious sun
speaks to us revealing to our
weakened weathered state,
she has come and gone again
for another day as -

Mother Nature smiles

Have you ever noticed how a feeling
can come to one through the innocents of
nature’s flight that can send you reeling?

Look homeward and see his smile as
his creations fly within a silent sound
telling us he is with us all the while

A simple message seen with our eyes
that calls to all who adore, he says,
I am watching over your silent cries...

Take a moment to inhale - me

Draws picture
On silent
Flat wall

I Trust...

~ We are the Children of the Lord ~

I trust in Him always
Never have I been scorn
For He shows me my path
Showing me truth and love
I am saved from my wrath

I trust in Him always
He makes sure I am safe
Protects my daily stride
Guides me on my journey
Whether narrow or wide

I trust in Him always
For His truth cares for me
He clears dark eyed vision
Counsels my every move
Make the right decision

I trust in Him always
I will follow Him home
For He is my true Lord
I never need to fear
With Him, my soul has soared

A Women Scorn ~ Sonnet

The heart has turned away hiding inside
Conceals the pure love that once did glow
Afraid to reveal pain the heart does show
Broken with slashes deep trying to hide
Body mends the mind closed the gap so wide
Love has taken the soul far below
Buries the guilt so his hand cannot sow
Heart crying deep tears as true love has died

Soul has learned not to trust anymore
Steals ones mind and thoughts not to restore
His lying lips she’s now a woman scorn
Emotions wasted on visions now torn
Walks alone to regain life as was born
Brings hope to a women who is lovelorn

- Rhoda Galgiani

Every Breath ~ Etheree Form

Breath of Heaven

Lead me
To this place
I became whole
Through Him I shall rise
He has shown me the way
I gave Him my loving heart
I receive favor through my soul
He has shown me how to love myself
I thank God with every breath that I take
