A Piece of the Puzzle--By Rhoda Galgiani--United States

A Piece of the Puzzle

The warmth of a winter’s sun
comforts the cockles of ones heart as
they lean into the rays of splendor

A spray of moisture touches their cheek
bringing one to a reality of life’s movement
figures gliding to and fro with a whisk of urgency

Holding on to eternal comforts woven within
carefully placed deep inside the human coils
the movement is gulped to be silently saved

A moment of satisfaction grasps the event
urging a joyful acknowledgement to another as the
passerby rushes to live a moment longer capturing…

a piece of the puzzle in life

    A thought provoking poem Rhoda, and for me, the Lord has been filling in the missing pieces of the puzzle. It all comes together when our lives are orchestrated by the Divine Creator.

    In today's world there are few who take time to share their lives. But for those that do, they become lasting parts of life's puzzle. Joyful memories of others slowly complete the puzzle. Thank you for sharing this meaningful thought.
