Cascades D’Amour

Poem by Joni Caggiano 08/06/20 – Tamara Menzi – Cascades of d’Ouzoud – Unsplash

(27 second read)

Red is the clay that talks to me, dotted with emerald eyes
Unyielding are its walls of love, languid Morocco, where I eagerly wait
Sea winds call to me, as I have seen her movement of sapphire, and cerulean
Cascades d’Ouzoud, like beating hearts your waters drumming, steam moving upwards
Yearning for her hot sands and calm waters, dreams walk with me in the sun
Avowing my name, like the echoes of a hidden cave reaching over the hills
Forged in ancient stone, unbreakable, as my heart travels by white dove
Blue the cloth it holds, my heart’s voice sown in red, between the lines
Soaring far beyond the Atlas mountains to join you, my love

    1. I have never been there either. I have always wanted to go. I fell in love with the photograph first and then researched this place. The waterfall there is one of the top 100 in the world. That is where the poem came from. Blessings to you my friend as well. I hope you and all your loved ones are well. Wishing you an amazing weekend. Love 💕 Joni

  1. Beautifully described the place with deep emotions in your sentences. There is stillness in this picture, so much peace in it yet feels like a raging power is hidden within. Great work Joni. I trust you’ve been well. 💕

      “There is stillness in this picture, so much peace in it yet feels like a raging power is hidden within.”

      You certainly did capture the feeling of this poem. This waterfall is so gorgeous, found pics on line. I fell in love with this artist’s photograph and wrote the poem around the photograph.

      Thank you my friend for ready and commenting. I appreciate your friendship and support. Love and blessings to you and yours. ❤️💕💖🙏

    1. Thank you so much Brad. You know I am always so flattered when you praise my work.

      “You have become a true artist of the descriptive phrase.”

      You, the master of so many complicated poetic forms. Also an excellent teacher of those forms, which you share with your followers.

      Have a blessed and amazing weekend my friend. Thanks again for the high praise. Love and hugs coming to you via flying carriage, loaded with exotic gifts from Morocco. Enjoy them over the weekend. ❤️💕🤗💖 Jonikins

    1. Thank you so much Katy. I am glad you were transported by my poem. I appreciate your kind words very much. Your work is beautiful. I enjoy reading your sad poems too. Often I think people feel they have to apologize for writing about sadness but we all experience sadness. As poets we should draw from all our emotions. Your “sadder poems” are so beautifully written. You are so gifted and I am glad you have a forum to share that gift as a very young woman.
      Thank you for reading my work, have a wonderful and blessed day. Love ❤️ Joni
