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 -


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]

i ain't never been loved...

i been a lotta thangs in my life
somebody’s child somebody’s wife
taught sunde school an’ carried a knife
lived in good and lived in strife
but one thang i ain’t never been is loved

had sweet nothin’s whispered in my ear
even had somebody call me dear
stayed with him for more’n a year
and once or twice i shed a tear
but i ain’t never been loved                      

oh yeah, i been hugged on
and kissed on an’ i been loved on
but i ain’t never been loved

not through and through
not till now

till you


Marlene said...

Oh what a sweet sentiment to someone...never been loved till now with you...I like that..could be a song!

Nevine said...

Oh, you turned it around on its head at the end, Jenean. Didn't see that coming! But it's beautiful. We always know when "LOVE" makes its way into our lives, don't we? Everything that happened before and everything that happens after doesn't matter, either! I loved your words, here.



thank you marlene - yes, very sweet - and true in at least one case! ;)


nevine - oh, yeah, when LOVE comes along, we know it alright - and that's all that matters - that and nothing more and nothing less - thank you so much for your always encouraging words!

Susan Deborah said...

Left me with melancholy and joy intertwined.

Lovely words Jenean.

Joy always,

Nora Johnson said...

Thought I was reading a song's lyrics - wonderful!

Have a wonderful weekend too!



Cynthia said...

Oh yeah! Now this is a gypsy woman's voice. Reminds me of my
Aunt Rue. Seduced by the bluesy
quality of the poem.

Protege said...

Oh, that was kind of sad...Until I reached the end. And then I understood and nodded with recognition.;)
Have a lovely weekend,


dear susan - oh, it's always joy to have been loved, even if only for an instance to be shown that love! love is love and worth the wait! thank you, dear friend, for your wonderful comments and for coming by - they mean so much to me!

Makes me want to hang my herbs and copper pans from the rafters of my cart and hurry out to the back roads.
