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]

pieces of me
left behind
wonderin’ now
who’s gonna find
strewn ‘long the highways
and byways of yesterdays       

pieces of me
to set free
wonderin’ now
if that’ll ever be
kept under wraps way too long
never singin’ a pretty song

pieces of me
still inside
wonderin’ now
if they’ll hide
in that deep dark abyss
or do they even exist

I love this piece of prose.....

Marion said...

Gypsy, if you take all those pieces and put them together....you'll have YOU! I love this and have often thought the same thoughts myself. The trick is to keep working on that puzzle....Love & Blessings!

Nevine said...

Something we all wonder about, sometimes... if those pieces really do exist. A question older than life itself, I think. And another beautiful string of words, Jenean!


Zuzana said...

I feel that way too at times, falling into pieces, needing a pair of strong hands to put me together again.;)


hello gypsynurse! so wonderful to have a kindred spirit following along with the caravan here - thank you! and i must say i love your bright and upbeat blog - visited there yesterday and will be back soon! thanks again for following along and have a great day!


so true, marion, the puzzle thing - and sometimes i feel just like a jigsaw puzzle! but don't we all!!! have a glorious day, lady!


an age old issue for sure, nevine! odd how we seem to perpetuate some things that really are so clear! hope your day treats you well!!!


oh, yes, for those strong hands, zuzana - irish or otherwise! ;)

Marlene said...
