He Is

A Tomb in Nazareth – Photo by @pisitheng via Unsplash – Poem by Joni Caggiano©

bullfrogs playing banjo strings in a scarlet sunset
water surging in veins of the rainforest in Borneo
dots that salsa around on the back of a newborn fawn
colors mingling on a palette, the firmament at dawn

fire rainbow made by ice crystals and bright sunlight
antelope canyon, shades reflect on the navajo sandstone
hanging pouches, mammatus clouds dangling in the sky
a spotless lamb loving us enough to be crucified and die

the smell of innocence resting on a newborn baby’s head
camouflaging, leafy sea dragons sway on the ocean’s floor
fledglings, leaving home, unsteadily flying, breaking ties
Jesus Christ, in tomb for three days, He did gloriously rise

      1. Oh thank you Cassa Bassa it is a time of renewal and hope for the world. To know we have a place in heaven makes all the difference in what is important. Thank you for your gifts of love and blessings, right back at you sweet Cassa. Love ❤️ Joni

    1. Thank you so much Cindy. I rarely feel qualified or good enough to write about Jesus or God when it comes to Easter. I don’t feel worthy I guess but I know God doesn’t think like that. God loves us all so much. Bless you my sweet friend. ❤️

    1. Thank you so much Tim. I appreciate your kindness. I am glad you liked the photographs. That sea dragon can turn bright blue it is amazing, it flows like the water. Australia has all kinds of things specific to that continent. Sending you two hugs on this Good Friday. 🤗🤗🙏🙏

    1. Thank you so much my friend. I appreciate your kind words as I find it difficult to write about God’s sacrifice of His only Son and the joy and happiness that sacrifice brings every believer. It is difficult to feel worthy to write about something that means so much. Blessings and Happy Easter to you and your wonderful family. Love Joni and Scott ❤️🙏

      1. Oh….my absolute pleasure, my friend!!! It’s a seriously beautiful post!!! And Thank You! Guess what? My post is up early. I got inspired! WHAT?!!! AND….drumroll please….I actually submitted a couple of poems for Gabriella’s book! Even if they don’t get published I’m so excited I actually put it something out there! Perhaps….PERHAPS I’m over whatever creative stillness I’ve been in and I will actually start, I dunno…..PAINTING!!! (other than digital art for blog once a week!) daily again rather than every 2 or 3 weeks…and start and finish projects that have been brewing for some time! Maybe not….anything’s okay…but it’s so fun to have been inspired 2 times in a row!!! 💖💖💖 AND….I am sending Lots of Love and Thanks right back to You for YOUR precious friendship!!! You are beyond sweet!!! I hope Y’all have a most wonderful Easter!!!! 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖!

      3. Thank You for all of this sweetness, Joni!!! Yep, in my experience (and some other expressive types I know) Inspiration and Creativity ebbs and flows. I’ve learned to just Be and breathe through it although I do tend to judge myself as there seem to be people who, no matter what, keep outwardly expressing. But each has their own story, dance, rhythm of life/creativity and there is nothing to do but honour it. Thank You for You wishes of luck! I send the same back to You my beautiful friend!!! Easter was beautiful! I hope Yours was as well!!! Bilg hugs and love coming right back to You!!! 🤗💖💐🌸🌷🐰💕🧚🏽😊

    1. Amen, blessings my dearest Anna. Yes indeed we do have that empty tomb. I feel like more than ever in my lifetime we need God and our salvation to hold onto. This world is likely to get very crazy and we are covered with God’s Holy Grace. So thankful today for every part of my life, the good and the bad. Bless you Anna and may you have a special day today. I hope you get to talk to your daughter and grandchildren. I talk to my daughter early this morning and it was a blessing. Saying prayers for your family and grateful for our friendship always. Love you, Joni
