One With The Earth

Poem by Joni Caggiano – Photo by James Wheeler (Building with Tree) (37 second read)

Beneath the brown earth, roots connected to my red blood vessels talk to me of hidden sorrows. Lonely is the earth, weeping tears flooding the soil as the browns turn to shades of gray and black. Reaching my shadow voice, it pulls my heartstrings to the point of such tautness, my pores weep, for I once knew a blue earth. Fog sets in to hide the greens of her mosses, and the bright reds, pinks, and yellows of her wildflowers—the dancers of existence set in motion by the tranquil breezes in the sky. Yielding categorically to her tender tug, I lay on my back while a calmness unfolds beneath me. Angels vibrate the earth’s skin, and she illuminates with a burst of colors with no names. Nature caresses me like a newborn, as God is the Maker, Father, and Finisher of all things. I am one with the earth as I am a child of God.

      2. I understand my friend. I don’t do well with long days without any sun. That is why we moved from Seattle. It was a record, but it actually rained ninety straight days. I am glad the restrictions are letting up where you are. We are still in lockdown mode. Love you my friend. Take good care of yourself. ❤️💕🙏🙏😘

  1. Such a wonderful read. “Fog sets in to hide the greens of her mosses, and the bright reds, pinks, and yellows of her wildflowers”
    Wonderful words and so so optimistic.
    ‘For I’m the one with nature, the child of God.’
    Youve put it beautifully. Wow! I’m literally somewhere between a smile and a tear reading this. Surreal, Joni. Enchanting.

  2. So sublime, this touched my heart.

    “roots connected to my red blood vessels talk to me of hidden sorrows. Lonely is the earth, weeping tears flooding the soil as the browns turn to shades of gray and black.”
    So beautifully you have described the earth. Weeping and lonely. Neglected and sorrowful.

    “Reaching my shadow voice, it pulls my heartstrings to the point of such tautness, my pores weep, for I once knew a blue earth.”
    The pain has been described so beautifully, and painfully♥️♥️

    I love this poem with my entire heart❤
    Sending you lots of love and hugs. I also send you a garland of kisses and beautiful dreams❣
    Love,
    Ishita🌷

    1. Ishita, you are a breath of fresh air. I am guessing you are very young and wise. You understand and write poetry so well. You have a gracious and kind heart. You are what my parents used to call an old soul. I am truly an old soul. I felt old at ten years old. I always appreciate your kind words and that you understand my work. Thank you dear Ishita for reading and commenting on my work it means a lot to me.

      “I love this poem with my entire heart.”

      Thank you sweetie. I received your gifts and the garlands which have blessed my heart so much. Sending you much love and hugs. Have a blessed weekend. ❤️💕💖🌺🌸Joni

    1. Thank you Anna what a very sweet thing to say and I am so grateful that you feel that way. Our on-line service this week was about letting love, and your love for God shine through yourself and what ever you do. We were studying Paul. This really touches my heart because I do hope people can feel my love in my blog. So thank you so much my friend for sharing this with me. What a wondrous gift you just shared with me. Sending you lots and lots of love dear Anna. Hugs J xoxoxoxo
