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]

lost now...

 
lost now -

the aroma of his light
that once had lit the way
out of her own darkness
the fragrance of his love
cast in a thousand wisps of windblown time
and with the loss of these
these filaments of her
there remained
only her mind
and her heart
her mind now shattered into fragments
emptied of its life flow
it, too, began to disintegrate to dissolve
into tarnished memories
memories tainted by that demon time
fading into the forest of forgotten faces
leaving only her heart
the heart that once beat to the drums
of ancient mariners
that beat as one with his
now slowed to shallow pulses
flickering dimly in the night of her sorrow
disappearing into the dank void
of what had been -

lost now
 
[feeling a bit "lost now" for words - 
hence, this re-posting of something over at "words unspoken" - enjoy!]

Love it. It really evokes emotion, Gypsy.

Rick said...

Speaks to me of storms on a long ago sea. Makes me want to know more of him to have left such a sense of loss.

Absolutely love this Gypsy! It speaks directly to that part of the soul which loves so deeply that it is forever changed simply by doing so. Just beautiful. Hope you are settled in now from your move and doing well.

Opps saw a typo in the previous comment, had to delete it and type it again. I just hate when I do that.

as he does to me, trish - as he does to me -

GYPSYWOMAN said...

it's so funny you mention "storms on long ago seas" rick - one of our favorite quotes was the one from an affair to remember as terry and nickie were onboard the ship at sea - "we're headed into rough seas" - "i know. we changed our course today." - and so, we had, indeed, changed our course - a course that had it continued would have meant the sinking of the ship and the loss of lives - in the literal and figurative sense - but there is also the other line from "affair" and that is "winter must be cold for those with no warm memories" - but oft times warm is just not enough - or so it seems -

GYPSYWOMAN said...

thank you for such kind words zuzana - and 'tis true - that thing about passion for life - and love - for what is life without love? ;)

GYPSYWOMAN said...

and dear desert rose - what an honor your words for mine! the longing that never stops piercing - at least in this case perhaps - so wonderful to see you again, lady!!! thank you!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

true, susan - never ever lost!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

oh, yes, lovelylinda - ships sinking for sure - as i mentioned to rick above - sinking with pending loss of lives - not something for which i was prepared to be responsible - and so it goes - or does not go - as the case may be - but the longing never goes - the memories never fading - and loving continuing - here - in words unspoken - but only here -

GYPSYWOMAN said...

forever changed just by the act of loving - so beautiful and so true, cole! your words always bring such insightfulness with them - settling in every day and then again the next day, still settling in! but today i've taken the day off - slept late - got up late - went out to a big flea market and browsed - and then home to do nothing some more today -
;)

Cole said...

Good for you! Hope you found some good finds. Enjoy your day.

GYPSYWOMAN said...

thx, cole! ;)

Very inspiring and emotional.
Makes me think of that movie the perfect storm. The sea has such mysteries. If it could only talk.

GYPSYWOMAN said...

hello there yvonne! how wonderful of you to come by and leave such kind words! and i can see what you mean, of the perfect storm although i'd not thought of it before - and you're so right about the sea holding such mysteries - and then, there is the sea of our own hearts! ;) great to see you - please come again soon! have a fab day!
