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]

these gypsy lips...

these gypsy lips
are red lips
  ruby red lips

these lips are powerful lips
lips that can change history
my history even your history
make you change your ways
into their ways
they can cause things to happen
you never dreamed of
never heard of
these lips
can lamblast you
right out of your
little comfort zone
and throw you
for a loop like
you’ve never been
looped before

they’ll pucker and pout
turn you inside out 
these lips are talkin' lips
they speak of truth of beauty
of life of love
they speak of me
of you
of us
of possibility
and the physics of both
they speak of passion
of poetry
of poetic passion
of passionate poetry
they speak to you

these lips are loud lips
rambunctious lips
rowdy lips
irreverent lips
they ramble
they recite
they speak up
and act out
they are unruly lips
lips that have no rules 
and will break your rules
these lips are happy lips
lips that smile
that open wide
and laugh out loud
lips that love to laugh
at big things
small things
at you
and with you

and at themselves
they laugh
these lips are magical lips
they can charm you disarm you
make you mold you molest you
melt you motivate you
they can turn you into things
you’ve never been before
and make you forget
what it was you were
these lips can take you
on a magic carpet ride
and have you beg
for a one-way ticket
these lips are lovin' lips
luscious and plump

full and ripe
ripe for lovin’ for bein' loved
for living' for livin' more
these luscious lips
will make you
wanna taste 'em
touch 'em
tease 'em
be teased by 'em
make you
wanna kiss on 'em
till you can’t kiss no more
then they’ll have you
comin’ back knockin' on their door

yes, these lips are lovin' lips

these gypsy lips
of mine

you did it again, wrote a long lovely piece that i don't have any idea how you managed to write... i guess we all have our gifts and yours is definitely writing...loved that painting-again? i think it's the one from last week but not sure, it's lovely either way.


oh, girl, i was just sitting here day dreaming and jotted it down - you know, full moon comin' up and a young girl's thoughts turn to - well, uh, to lips in this case!!! ;)

this image is just another of de lempicka's that i edited for just the lips but not one i've used before - but very similar to another of hers, yes - her women do all have wonderful red mouths, though - for the most part - the works i've seen, anyway -

and thank you so much for your sweet words - high praise coming from one as talented as you, lady!

Wow, Gypsy, that is one awesome, inspiring poem and you totally rocked it!

It reminded me of a poem by the late, great Lucille Clifton which I'll shre here. (She just died on Feburary 14---a great loss for the poetry community!) Love & Blessings!!

homage to my hips
by Lucille Clifton

these hips are big hips
they need space to
move around in.
they don't fit into little
petty places. these hips
are free hips.
they don't like to be held back.
these hips have never been enslaved,
they go where they want to go
they do what they want to do.
these hips are mighty hips.
these hips are magic hips.
i have known them
to put a spell on a man and
spin him like a top!


well, there it is! that's it! my sister had just read me parts of that - she had come across the news in some of her theatre stuff and called me - sittin' round late at night, these little ditties kept spinning round and round - couldn't for the life of me remember her name - thanks lady! geezee...and i see i had the artist as delacroix instead of de lempicka [modified] - that's what burning the midnight oil will do!

and let me ask how your friend renee is doing? caring thoughts to her and hers -

Marion said...

Gypsy, my precious friend Renee is dying. She's in the hospital and the cancer has spread to her stomach, stomach lining and bone marrow. I am praying for her to be released from her suffering. Thanks for asking. Blessings---


yes, i knew time was closing in - dear dear renee - i've left a couple of caring thoughts for her in several places but had not heard today - bless her precious heart! my thoughts are with her - your homages to her have been so incredibly moving! she is so lucky to have a loving friend such as you! please do keep me posted, won't you? much love -


oh, marion, in case you've not browsed below, i thought you might like sand traveler -

see ya later, louisiana lady!
