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]

been so long...




been so long since the sun did shine
in this little ole’ heart of mine

body’s all tired an’ depressed
makes me think its possessed

pregnant spirit bout to burst
beginnin’ to see it’s a curse

ain’t had no lovin’ in such a long time
just hope i ain’t gotta turn to no crime

don’t know which is worse
love hunger or spirit thirst

neither one ain’t no good
but'cha know i done what i could

gotta wash away all this glum
need me a little jamaican rum

slip on my red dancin' shoes
step on out in life all new

git me a bite of somethin’ sweet
have me a little suga’ treat

gonna do more’n what i can
and git me a good-lovin’ man

I love these little songs you sing, Jenean. I swear someone could write music to these little treasures. Very sweet!

Damn, when I first started reading this, I thought, Wait a minute, is this Dylan? But No. It's Gypsy's heart singing. How perfectly beautiful.

Hi!

Hope you're having a good weekend!

btw I sent you an email earlier this week @ gypsywomanworld@gmail.com. Did you manage to get it?!

Best wishes

LOLA:)

dear nevine - well, now, if i just had a little guitar player tucked away somewhere! i just put these little things together on a shoestring so to speak and am never sure of the end or the response - and, as always, thanks ever so much, dear lady!

and dear trish - now, you know, to have one's name even thought of in the same context as dylan - way too much!!! - so i thank you with all my singin' heart! you always know "what it is"!!!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

and hello there miss nora and miss lola! oh, yes, i did get your note and apologize for not having responded - but if you saw my posts this week, you know that a dear friend of ours died very tragically a few days ago and i've been more than distracted with the news of that - in any event, i do so appreciate your sweet note and promise to make my way back over to your place - at times i just "clean house" so to speak - and i do so appreciate your contacting me again! thanks much! and have a wonderful remainder of the weekend, ladies!

Why I'll be damned!! How do you manage this Jenean? I still feel that there is this secret place you turn to within yourself to get such marvellous ideas.

Lovely. We are nothing without love, right? And who better to understand that than you?

Loved it!!

Much love and hugs
Deboshree
