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]

the gypsy moon...



his long lean arms
reached upward
stretching
searching
upward toward heaven
reaching for her
coiling
curling
circling
embracing the glory
that was her
clasping
clinching
clutching
her orbital beauty
that lit his dark nights
lighting
illuminating 
and so they lived 
each in the love of the other

You have such a romantic spirit, Gypsywoman. I find the voice of my psyche in so much of what you write. That was perfectly lovely!

Not really touching
He could no more
Near the winter of his life
As much as he wanted
He felt the heat of her
She was burning him
And he stood there
Dying forever
Hoping beyond hope
For another spring
She would still be there
Waiting

Hope is a dreadful thing, beautiful Jenean. Do you hear this thunderous whisper?
