My New Poem, “Violin Tears,” Now Live at Spillwords Press NYC

Poem by Joni Caggiano – Photograph by Josep Molina Secall – Unsplash

tears crystalize on my small face like water on frozen glass
quivering my hand reaches out with such yearning
colors of sapphire, and rubies I throw onto our canvas
arising shapes of merriment mix with raw, passionate memories
cascading like secret rivers seeking new tributaries
flutes thrill as life kisses my soul, and an orchestra performs
tiny dancers twirl, floating on an atmosphere which is untainted love
mournful aching brings tears to the sky, as a violin cries her tune

    1. Thank you so much Brad. I really appreciate it. I am glad you liked it. I bet you are a very early riser. Hoping you have an amazing day my friend. Sending love, hugs, and amazing day dreams your way. Jonikins ❤️🧚🏻🧜‍♀️🌙

    1. Thank you my dear friend. I hope your day is going wonderfully and that you are feeling great this morning. We have been having heat advisories almost every day. It is very hot in North Carolina. We are also pretty much still on lockdown. How are things in your neck of the woods my friend? Sending you cool breezes and flowers to sweeten your day. Love ❤️ Joni 🌸🌺🌹💐

      1. Oh I am sorry to hear that my friend. Are you able to get out at all John? It is too hot to even take walks right now but I was able to see my daughter from Seattle and grandchildren and that was so nice. Except for that pretty much masking up and buying groceries. Sorry it is still bad where you are. We are living in crazy times. Take good care of yourself my friend. Love ❤️ Joni

      2. Oh well that sounds nice. I lived in Virginia Beach and Norfolk when I was growing up. I am sure things have changed so much but I loved living on the beach. My father was given the place to live in while he was in the service. It was so nice. That sounds like something nice to look forward to my friend. Wishing you a wonderful weekend my friend. Sending love ❤️ and hugs 🤗. Joni

        I see it a lot with the blogging communtiy and thought it was just for poetry. I appreciate that. What is the website? I did so much enjoy it. You as well! ❤️ Cindy

    1. Thank you my friend. Hope all is well with you. I wish you didn’t have to work. I am glad I retired early as I don’t play well with politics in the work place. I am very honest and I don’t care if I am talking to the President of the company. So I don’t know how long I would last in a political based work place. Love and hugs to you my sweet friend. 🤗💕❤️😘Joni

      1. You’re welcome, Joni. I like how you are, I am like that too and it gets me in trouble. Power tripping gets to me. I’m glad you can focus on your writing instead of dealing with work nonsense. You’ve earned your retirement. 💖🤗❤️😘

      2. Oh you are so thoughtful. I have put up with a lot of crap over the years as many women do. However I liked to think by sticking up for women in the work place I made a difference and I am guessing you do the same. Love ya ❤️💕🤗Joni

  1. My dearest Joni, this is a symphony of love; a gift for divinity. In fact, it is divine in itself. I am immersed in your verses like a in clear and blessed body of water waiting for the call. What a pleasure to read it.
