God’s Hand

Poem written by Joni Caggiano on 07/28/20 – Photo by Stephanie LeBlanc


flower petals float into my hair
sand gathers in hills by midnight air
the moon closes her lid and darkness will fall
cypress grows in a marshland that forgot to call
creation blooms and acorns smile, as they are buried in sand
while God walks a lost child home, embracing her precious hand

    1. Thank you Francisco. Just a little moment in time hopefully to remind people God hasn’t gone anywhere. He is with us now as always. Churches are struggling right now and those that can continue to support their churches I hope they will.
      Thank you kind friend for reading and commenting it always means a lot. You and your sweetheart have an amazing day together. On a different note – the guest post you did was really something Francisco and the music was really beautifully done. I wonder if you have ever written scores for movies. I bet you would be great at it. Love and hugs to you both, stay healthy, take wonderful care of each another. πŸ’–πŸŒΈπŸ€—β€οΈJoni

      1. Thank you Joni, you are a lover of God and a beautiful soul on this Earth and I thank you! Now, reference a guest post? I’ve never done one…
        All the best to you and your husband, may you enjoy a great week and a safe and peaceful time.
        Take good care and all the best!
        Francisco πŸ™‚

      2. I am confused and a little embarrassed Francisco. I sent you a response on Instagram. I would sure like to know whose video and music I was watching of this very talented female artist. I have been sick with a migraine and dizziness, perhaps I should’ve been on line at all. Love πŸ’• Joni

    1. Thank you Brad. I appreciate your sweet words. Yesterday I must have started six poems but nothing felt right. Does this ever happen to you? Or do you just work on it until you get it right? Today I am going to get pad and paper to place in all my favorite writing places. Thanks again for that reminder yesterday. Hope you have a great day my friend. Sending you lots of love, hugs and blessings this morning. β€οΈπŸ’•πŸ™ Joni

      1. I am a bit tenacious once I have gotten something started. But, I too, have to put things down sometimes and return to them with a different perspective and mind set. It is all a part of the process. They will come to fruition when the words feel right to you! Hang in there! Tons of love to you! πŸ’–πŸŒΉ

      2. Thanks Brad you are a sweetheart. I appreciate your support. You sound like you have a process just like me it comes when it does. Thank you so much. I feel better all ready. I feel your love. Sending lots back. β€οΈπŸ’•πŸ’–Jonikins

    My friend from not so far away but feels so far since I haven’t seen you for soooo long!!! I’ve missed you and so good to see your writing again. This is so beautiful and I loved this line; “God walks a lost child home, embracing her precious hand”. That is just beautiful. I hope you continue to be healing and staying safe!!!! Lots of love and many blessings, πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

    1. Hi dear Cindy, I am sorry I
      Feel far away. Thank you for all your gracious words they touch my heart. Yes, I have not been on line as much. However I am grateful for all that I have been blessed with my friend. That includes your friendship my friend from not so far away. Love ❀️ you sweet Cindy. I hope your beautiful family is all well and have managed to visit.

      1. oh no dearest Joni… not a worry. I was just worried about you and was so glad I had it wrong after your surgery and all. You are always near at heart. Thanks for touching back and glad you are writing but it’s a LOT. I GET IT!!
        Oh I’m glad to know all is well in your world and ours have reconnected my sweet friend. Love to you and your hubby, Thanks, we’re all good with many balls in the air.. life.. you know. have a wonderful day!! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

      2. You are such a sweet light my friend. You just sort of glow in the camera. Such a natural. I am surprised you don’t have some kind of tv show but then that light might not be as bright. Too many people likely not as tender hearted as you. I am glad to hear everyone is well and living life with what it brings. Keep that beautiful smile and glow going my sweet friend. Love ❀️ you

  5. Wow, Joni! Each line is perfect, but I love “creation blooms and acorns smile, as they are buried in sand” you have the most incredible gift, my friend! πŸ€—β€πŸ₯°βœ¨
