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]

the caged heart...





little bird
little bird
how do you chirp

far too captured
too enraptured

to wander forth
to flee the door
to close the door

little bird
little bird
how do you chirp

far too captured
too enraptured

to wander forth
to fly to soar
to love and more

life untried
locked inside
the dreams you make


the dreams
no one can take...

.

would you like to hear the words spoken?

This reminded me of a canary I had and loved very much...he's gone now...but I didn't like keeping him caged. When he died I felt relieved for him and felt he was free at last. At the time I bought him I wasn't thinking of him..only the pleasure I would get from his beautiful singing. I was rather selfish then.
Thanks for the reminder to myself here of how much I've evolved.
And thank you for a beautiful poem.

what a beautiful story of your canary! i know what you mean about keeping a little precious critter caged - i felt the same way about a little finch that my son gave me for xmas many many moons ago - i think of him, too - odd how we can learn so much from one so tiny, isn't it?

Let your soul always be free as a bird. I love this Gypsy. What a great treat to hear your voice! I do hear that charming southern accent! Just lovely dear lady, so glad you fixed the sound problem.

Soooo beautiful. One thing for sure, our dreams are our own, no one can take them from us. I think I would not survive without my dreams, they give me freedom from reality. Just love hearing your beautiful voice. As I posted on my blog, "it's a done deal, we are sisters". :)

So lovely, and it reminds me of a bird I once had that I let fly all over my apartment until it met with the neighbors cat. :-(
