Summer Moment by Joni Caggiano

can you sense me noiseless in midair

between long grey hovering moss

for only cypress moments live there

time slides off my round hips into light

hummingbirds toss nectar impishly

rainbows play hide and seek out of sight

hay plays a tune, crickets spin a yarn

sweet whiffs of hay encircling me

God’s vista smiles with ardor from a barn

    Joni’s poetry inspires one to look at life and nature with eyes that can only relish. Her soft and beautiful words influence the mind to imagine goodness and coax the heart to feel all the possible love that it can. There’s so much to appreciate and summer is one such season. The heat, the sun, and the trickle of sweat down one’s neck and back. A lot can be left to individualistic interpretation. That’s the charm of creative writing.
    Congratulations Joni!
