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]

the crucible...

she no longer had thoughts of her own

her own mind to her now unknown

the air she breathed no longer the same

her lungs inhaling particles of shame

light and darkness no longer distinguishable

her eyes blinded to all but the holy crucible

days became nights and nights became nights without end

no longer could she pretend

she no longer had thoughts of her own

Beautiful thoughts..you play on my senses beautifully Gypsy..i enjoy reading you! thank you for stopping by at my sanctuary..tight hugs darling xoxo


your kind words humble me so glynis - 'tis the words themselves to whom the honor is owed - they speak to me on their own and i am only the instrument of their voice - but i thank you - and am so pleased you like -


desert rose - i think we both play each to the other's senses - you with your magnificent words certainly do mine - that is one of the most wonderful things of blogland, isn't it - the connections made that otherwise would never become - i am thrilled to have found such a kindred spirit as you - hugs back lovely rose -

You're amazing. Our words are pitch perfect, again. And this image is so intriguing.

There is a feeling of sadness and longing in this poem but it's wonderful!
Very touching and soulful words as always. I love the painting as well. Is this one of your works?
So good to see you at my place and thank you gypsy woman for leaving a kind comment.
Sweet greetings,
Jo. x:-)


oh, thank you for your kind words, trish - and a picasso image - what could be more perfect than that - she seemed to me to be in spirit-pain-discovery, rather than merely "washing her hair" as picasso intended! :)


oh, my dear jo - would that it were my own painting - but i must give all homage to the magnificent picasso - although my style is often influenced by his - but i am humbled at even the thought so i thank you! ;)

and thank you for your observations of my own words - it's always such fun visiting your intriguing place and i miss not being over more often! wonderful to see you over here!!! have a great day!!!
