Stung

OLYMPUS E-520 DIGITAL CAMERA- Photo and Poem by Joni Caggiano on May 22, 2020 Magic wings of evening time, lost, a button droppedA silk tie lies upon the clock that abruptly stoppedFrozen bitter is my stare; I ought not have tarried thereIt was I who flew into our nest of love, to be fairLike a … Continue reading Stung

God’s Mercy

Shadows of God's grace inching quietly over His landsDrifting like silk, or the forming of dunes with white sands Relaxing, the sparkling brook, stirred and merrily smiledIn Haiti, a once innocent mission worker sees a hungry child Upon a dying young man, lay the calming glove of a nurseOur Lords' words memorized sitting close; she … Continue reading God’s Mercy

Io

Dancing feet under the snowfields of JupiterWhile seventy-nine moons illuminate your cheekPiercing strength your jaw touches mineFire runs through meLips embrace, and I am dizzy in your armsGliding beside melting snowIce cools my skinIf only till you touch me once again Written by Joni Caggiano 4/22/20 Photo by Joni Caggiano

Touch

Suddenly I am awake.Millions of black dots makea nearly dark ceiling appear solid.Staring at the tentaclesof the old southern fanlabored breaths strain for air.Our dog is old, his anguish mine.

Faith

Sunkissed my lids and dew melted in my hands as I leaped Laughter bounced from the soft snowy clouds echoing a call Wings of buttery color with hues of scarlet and cerise rose Angels of Protection with skin transparent and features unique Exquisiteness which held no conceivable description flew softly Yet reverberations like thunder imparting … Continue reading Faith

River’s Song

I hide within her rolling peaks and float with ferns that line the river Playing the snapping turtle's shell pulsating sounds echo in rhythm Scarlet Tanagers singing along with warblers from their thin branches Water moccasins slither like ribbons in the wind close to her long lip Young Blue-fronted Dancers perform a colorful salsa within … Continue reading River’s Song
