“The lost season,” poem by Joni caggiano
wings of fall flew by with time, still no budding note
her hues and tints on palette lay orange and red
no painting of leaves or merging bodies in their bed
stark white, her winter attire majestic, a birch retelling
their summer of dancing keys and shades in blue
by the fire, her heart aching, amid rapt thoughts of you
brave, a warrior epochs ago, craving a mere taste of him
winter falls, riding a horse, without omen stopping by
logs on the fire, a missing season, a lonesome woeful sigh

I will talk to you soon. Love you Joni xoxoxox

Thank you Tim so much. Tiffany has a truly unique style and I love the way she uses recycled material in her paintings. Thank you for your kind comment.

The art and the words inspire each other. There’s a lot of pain and longing in your verses. The way you have used the seasons to convey the shifting emotions is beautiful. The art is definitely a myriad of tales. Great writing, Joni. Lovely! 🙂

Sending love and a big hug. Love Joni
Intriguing blends of lines and colors, words and shapes, with both mingling into the other’s work – wonderful collaboration with Tiffany, Joni! ❤️ Esp liked the resonating 2nd & 3rd line rhymes; bit of a shocker 1st stanza, then looking for it after & gladly finding it! 💕

What a beautiful meeting of two artists…the visual and the poetic! The painting has great emotion, deep feeling, wild swings between passion and sadness..Your poem captures that and mirrors your own passions and nostalgic memories. It’s a beautiful collaboration Joni, the painting feels like it speaks your words. Congratulations to you both!❤️🌹
