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 gypsy weeps...

eyes in midnight velvet
black jet
tamed by no man yet 

soft breasts of alabaster silk
with skin like soft creamy milk

hair spread like raven wings
when she speaks the gods do sing

lips all pouty and shimmering wet
she lives and loves without regret

spinning webs in ribbons of light
laid in shadows of darkest night
 secrets hid in her red red heart
yearning for a love not lived apart

wish she did with all her might
but life alone is her sad plight

and so it is in the forest deep
the heavens sleep

the gypsy

i seem not to have a photo/picture to go with these lovely words but lovely they are anyway...how do you do this, my beautiful friend. always so moving, so powerful, seemingly growing moreso the longer i know you...who knows where you will go next? xx

my wv: sayba - like ceiba, the tree that is called the tree of life.


thank you trish! i love the wv! beautiful! you know, i feel nica in these words - i feel her yearning for a life not lived in the loveless shadow world - i understand her - i know her - it's really weird the way in which i relate to her -


oh, dear, now, what could be the problem with the image here, linda! i'm so sorry! while i'm at my daughter's i'm confined to using her laptop as she's unable to find the code card which would allow me to use my own laptop - and it seems that nothing in blogger is working the same on her computer as mine - don't know why or how, just that it isn't working properly - in any event, so happy the words please you - your own words and images are such an inspiration to me - as is your own dear sweetness, lady - hugs -

love that line
life alone is her sad plight
seems appropriate

Zuzana said...

That is truly beautiful, I feel a bit like that gypsy indeed...


life alone is her sad sad plight, for sure, rick - and so it is that she weeps in the forest as the angels sleep -

wonderful to see you, sir - hope all is well in your world! ;)


ah, and so do i, zuzana, so do i! ~ sigh ~
