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]

your eyes...


your eyes
invite me in
in through the door
opened to but a few
the door kept locked
and chained by
desolation desperation
    
your eyes
unwrap my soul
baring my own lonely heart
unwinding undoing
the ties placed round it
holding the pieces in place
till your healing comes home

your eyes
undress my body
revealing the wanton
undergarments of
of wasted life
exposing my naked desire
opening the pores
of past and present


your eyes
lay me down
upon your soul’s pallet
too long empty
barren and brittle
waiting longing
for the passion of love
to ignite it once again

your eyes
beg beseech my own
to warm your cold
colorless frigid heart
wrap it in crimson tides
hold it close
heart to heart
the two made one

your eyes
invite me in

and

close
the
door
.

GYPSYWOMAN said...

thanks trish - i've always always had a thing for eyes - for me, it's very true that they are the windows of the soul - that instant glance at another and one knows the truth of that person's heart - [ok ok, so i've missed a few times, but......i still have a thing for eyes!]

GYPSYWOMAN said...

you know, glynis, there are people in our lives who bring us healing - healing of all kinds - some known some unknown - but healing nevertheless - and i've been very lucky [although i really don't believe in luck, you know what i mean, right?], to have had several such people in my life - some even now! ;) and i'm so pleased if you found this little piece with favor particularly if you found it with meaning for you!
thanks so much for coming by - i've missed your visits - hope all is well in your world -

Glynis said...

You have the most beautiful gentle voice! Out of curiosity, are you a water sign? just curious ;)

Trish said...

now let's hear these words set to music and sung!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

thank you so much glynis for those kind words - about the water sign thing - oh, no! i'm a fire bred leo through and through in and out - what about you?

GYPSYWOMAN said...

i'm ready, trish - where's the musicman/woman???

Glynis said...

You have the sweet voice of a pisces woman but the fiery heart of a leo, very appropriate! I'm a scorpio, through and through and through :)

GYPSYWOMAN said...

oh, i always feel as if my voice is so scratchy when i record here - my equipment is so very basic - like, the most basic - so there is static and background noise etc - making your comments all the more endearing to me! thank you - and i confess i would not have pegged you a scorpio - ever - a libra or cancer - funny how our perceptions work -
;)
