Just One Thing

Anxiety, perplexing pain is like drowning in the ocean,The entirety is closing in, submerging us in slow motion.Getting lost amongst the rubble and all the after hours,Ever wonder how they came about all their dreadful powers?Instead, let us ruminate on the Son of Man and so rejoice,Giving thanks to Our God with every single grateful […]

The Lonely Sailor (Part 2)

For Part One click here (Reading time for Part 2 is 6 minutes and 19 seconds) Conscious of the thin sea mist that was clinging to my body, I licked my lips, tasting a hint of salt. My big browns were taking in an exciting array of individuals walking around the boardwalk. Among the men, […]

Disconnected

Lonely spaces dwell even amongst the crowded People dialogue without truth, emotion or love Sieged by countless, faceless, and woeful humans. Entrusting another is a gamble for those empty Desiring sincere contact such a formidable goal All striving to grasp and sustain such a treasure. Are we unable to simply love, trust and reveal That […]

Toxic Water

The great whale will die, eating Islands of plastic, while many don’t care. In a turtle’s nose, lodged within a plastic straw, causing constant pain. Killing the ocean, no cares for the future child, hearts lack devotion. By Joni Caggiano (Three Haikus) 11/13/19

To Float Out of Existence

Terrifying was the firm declaration of her voice Nonexistent was empathy in her vivid testimony. I dreamed of you again, Joni, your waist length hair Framing your petite face floating in the chilly waters Of your bath, a slight layer of water visible above Your lifeless body as your essence was striving to Float, as […]

To Launder in Love

No rationale for the sorrow which often floods our hearts Through an awful thicket armed with spikey painful needles Edging along this dreadful path cautiously we shall ponder Why to visit now, this trail of tears we precipitously wonder. Drowning in this uninvited sensation and under we do go Violent are the waves of regret […]

Hope for Tomorrow

Hope is an open bottle catching rain, When thirst comes without water. A prayer that ceases any child’s pain. The crevice that brings forth a flower, Land that is dried and longs for rain, Life in the desert after a vital shower. In the airport both the smiles and tears, As we come and go […]

We Dance For Silence

Like a snake sheds his skin so go we, those of us who bravely venture onFilled with heightened senses as vigilantly, we quietly roam till dawn. Exposed our emotions on our shoulders perched like the raven black,Hearing whispers, feeling stares, why we grow eyes high upon our back. Lost amongst the others, those who gather, but wonder […]

The Artist

We live in between our own anxious, gasping breaths, On wonderland that is neither somewhere or nowhere, Up and down lies carefully on its side and dares to think, Within our creative cells and tortured thoughts derive, Pen, brush, music, and lens we work to capture the eyes, Expressing our images with the naked utter […]
