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]

dawn's embrace...


hold me close hold me tight
hold me through the vicious night
and if the morn should find you gone
i shall love you more with the dawn

reading all your posts today and they are all so lovely, and all seem to be speaking about a similar experience, a rush, a loss....i don't know...all beautiful, as always♥

Oh, Jenean...I simply ADORE your poetry...you feed my soul! "Vicious Night" captures such a profoundly startling image...but it resonates with such strength! You are fabulous! Hope your week will bring you much peace and comfort! Love, Janine XO

Ah, you hit the spot with this one... Loved the words and that image detail is from one of my favorite paintings. I really enjoyed this...
Thank you for your very poetic comment the other day.;))

..for you held me through the night when others would have left...

Beautiful Jenean.

What matters is not that your loved ones should be around you ALL the time but when they are truly NEEDED.

Much love,
Deboshree

Oh how sad but sweet..beautiful words and and perfect picture match! How do you do that?? Your pictures always fit so well with your words! You must share your secret!!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

oh, no secret, marlene! i just find an image that i'm in the mood for at that moment and then let it tell its own story to me or i jot down a few words and they tell their own story as i write and then i find the image that "fits" those words -
