we all are gypsies of a sort wandering traveling through this life other lives space and time here there and yon on roads less traveled - this is a written and visual journal of my own travels - imagined and/or real - come along with me - we'll dance among the stars under the sun and over the moon - share our stories around the campfire - come along -

this site is simply a streamofconsciousness rambling of words and images in which i find meaning and beauty - there is no organized order of thought or format -
poetry painting and writing on love and life and things thereof from the heart and through the eyes of a louisiana gypsy spirit travelin' roads less traveled...enjoy -

THE GYPSYWOMAN WORLD

My photo
A...WOMAN IN MOTION WITH HAIR AS DARK AS NIGHT HER EYES WERE LIKE THAT OF A CAT IN THE DARK... SHE WAS A GYPSYWOMAN... she danced round and round... from the fire her face was all aglow... she was dancing... dancing... waiting for the RISING SUN... loving caring relationships are like THE RISING SUN...we are nourished by their warmth...we are energized by their strength...we grow in their light...we find shelter and solace there...they are our sanctuary... born in the sign of the sun, i am a true LEO-love the sun and its hot orange red fire-passionate in and about everything i do-i believe in instant chemistry charisma love/lust at first sight-in the magic of the eyes and the beauty of the soul-in the instant recognition familiarity in meeting someone from a past life and in the knowledge that we might meet in a future life-i believe that we are each ageless and flawless-i believe in the beauty of the moment-the whisper of yesterday-the hope of tomorrow-the power of forgiveness for even ourselves-the absolute and total beauty of love---[credit to brian hyland and curtis mayfield]

she sits...



she sits
poised expectant ready
her heart beating to the  

rhythmic stirrings of ancestors
to nights of yore
her spirit no longer here but flown to

caves of primal passion
to her place in the sun
her voice silent her soul throbbing to the

chanting of her tribe
to her own gods she does ascribe
she sits
poised expectant ready
for she is
gypsy
she
dances
tonight

GYPSYWOMAN said...

hey lady deborah! don't you LOVE this image! so powerful - the image - and thanks for the word on my little words! so glad you came over!

Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

flamenco! Every image you post seems to address some past life you have lived - or perhaps a future life you will live. Or some intricate part of your archetypal soul. Really cool.

GYPSYWOMAN said...

oh, thank you so much trish - your words are so cherished -

the images i choose are the ones that simply "speak" to me - in almost a raw literal sense - and then the image "tells" me what to write - and vice versa -

anyway, thanks for so faithfully coming along here!

Beautiful!
Strong, pumping with life and passion!
Those are the words which come to my mind when I see the picture.
Beautiful description gypsywoman!

BTW, I meant my partner when I said my baby. I guess I should have written my partner instead.
