Magic of the Morning





Magic of the Morning by Joni Caggiano – Beautiful Image by Ray Bilcliff from Pexels

securing her likeness within the shifting fog
chasing lingering moon dancers in her red apron
elbows raw from scaping the dancing tree limbs
a breakfast of oats and honey sits on the table
thinking of the first time they met in the stable

a newborn wren chirping for its morning worm
tapping her shoulder, the first ray of pinkish sun
white gardenias singing while the trees clapped
a doe and its mom were eating willow oak leaves
dew on the web of the garden spider between trees

life kissing her sweet cheek with love and hope
bare feet jumping to the sound of natureโ€™s rhythm
cinnamon and brown sugar leaving a trail in the air
nature is reawakening and tipping its top hat
while eating, purring in the corner was her cat

      1. It is always a blessing. We walked through the woods we have right in the centre of our city, it’s called the River and now it is a park. We can enjoy many birds there and nature totally. Have a blessed day filled with love, peace and happiness.

      up for Retha and her family. Sending you my love as well as your daughter and entire family. Love you Joni

    1. I am humbled by your words. That is what I strive to do. Nature calls to me so intently and I try and use and describe my I feel, smell, heat and taste. Thank you so much for your kindness. This means a lot to me.
      I hope you have a very special day as you have mine special. Love โค๏ธ Joni

  1. Wow. It’s like you dipped into my own memories for a moment, you are so good at that, Joni!!! I think it was the Cinnamon and brown sugar line that triggered me the most. My grandmother used to make me cinnamon and sugar toast, and she told me to eat the crust, it would make my hair curly. So I never ate the crust. I’ll be damned, I still got curly hair! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚

    1. Oh Tiffany that is such a sweet comment. I love it when I read someoneโ€™s work and it brings memories. What a very sweet story about your grandmother. I love your beautiful curly hair. Mine is fine and straight as a stick. It is funny how we never are happy with our on hair. I use to perm mine till it was nothing but frizz. Yours is gorgeous girl. You totally have that artist look. I did when I was younger. Love you Tiffany, ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿงš๐Ÿป๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ sending the fairies out with homemade cinnamon toast. They also packed bags full of lovely paints for you.
