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]

your words...














your 
words
have
somehow slipped
into the shadows 
of my heart
capturing all 
that is there
including the tears

OMG, Study of a Woman in Red! I tried my hand at painting this Henner several years back. It now sits in my basement along with all my other paintings. Poor things. I do have a few smaller ones out on our walls, but the larger ones just sit waiting. Great words to capture her expression. I was drawn to this painting myself based on her look. Maybe I will bring the old girl out and find a wall space for her. Thanks for the reminder!

i seem to have had red on my mind a lot of late - and i love this one of henners - there is something about her expression - her spirit - that draws me too - and you know, she reminds me of you, especially your profile pic - so get out your girl in red and give her the red she deserves!!! ;)

be sure and run over to words unsaid, if you've the time!

Dear Jenean,

You just got spammed by this insufferable オテモヤン (Otemoyan). Each word is a dirty word leading to a xxx link. You should delete this comment and report the guy to Blogger. I can't stand those net polluters.

Roger Gauthier said...

Well, dear Jenean, I will never know you. Those are so powerful, and so possibly true. And even then, I could interpret them almost as I wish...

There are always tears in a heart. Do you think that a heart without tears would really be a heart? Life's beauty, if there is such a thing, is all about loving, laughing... and suffering.

Dear Jenean:

The woman in the picture has a certain sadness to her. As Gauthier remarked: "There are always tears in a heart."

LOvely words to ponder and begin the day.

Joy always dear one.

Susan

Lovely words Jenean!

Deboshree said...

So beautiful, so poignant.

Love it, Jenean. You have the capacity to touch our hearts and become a part of it. I'm so thankful to have found you.

Love you
Deboshree

How beautifully your choice of image works with your very quiet, very serene words. It is like this lady is pulling those words out of her heart for us to see, while she sits silently. Just lovely!

#1 roger - thanks for warning - yes, i hate them, too - thought i'd gotten rid of them by re-doing my comment verification - geezzzeeee...thanks again!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

and dear roger - you know, i sometimes simply cannot respond to your comments - but i will say that these words are true - in the most literal sense - and of tears in one's heart - yes, but all too rarely is another able to understand that, let alone be willing to capture the tears, along with all the love -

merci -

GYPSYWOMAN said...

yes, susan, these are lovely words and i say that humbly since i am their creator - although it is to the heart of another that i owe my gratitude for it was that heart that whispered them to me -

GYPSYWOMAN said...

my dear marlene! i've missed seeing you here so much! it's wonderful to have you here again - your presence adds such brightness and love!!! thank you!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

dear deboshree - and that is how i feel about you - so very lucky to have found you here - isn't it wonderful the connections that are possible with the click of a little key! i think that one can only touch the hearts of those who also touch one's own heart! as you do! thank you for always being here!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

you know, nevine, this is another prime example of how an image literally "speaks" to me - literally - i mean, when i sat and looked at her, it was she who showed me the way - who did in the truest sense pull those words from her own heart for us all -

you see it, too!

thank you so much for your comments which mean so much to me!

For me this is great poetry. Just these brief texts require the high art of the author and that your words go with me into the shadows of my heart. What verses - I am absolutely delighted, so much feeling. You have a great talent, a wonderful gift for your rich feeling clothed in magical words. I love this text!

Hugs from my heart,

Isabella
