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]

on nights of golden moon...

.
.
.
the road may call your name
but i still whisper it
on nights of golden moon

i keep it in my box
of things that mean the most
and take it out at times

to hold it to my lips
to savor it once more
as if each time the last 

and in my heart i sing

loves sweetest song to you
the one that calls your name
so i can whisper it
on nights of golden moon


so i can whisper it
.

Beautiful imagery painted with words, of sentimental memories brought out by the silver disc.;)
I always love the time of the full moon.;)

TO ALL - i hope you enjoy this poem as much as i do - it was written some time ago and inspired by endearing words sent me from far far away - and while i did write it myself, there is something about these words that is so beautiful [to me] that had i not written it, i would wish that i had - i love the flow and rhythm of but most of all i love the message - and cannot help but think of these words on nights of golden moon, like tonight -

GYPSYWOMAN said...

hello zuzana - so good to have you back - i hope your time away was all that you wanted and needed it to be - you were missed here but now you are back and it's wonderful of you to come by and leave a note - i'll see you at your place soon! have a glorious day and a moon-filled night!

Wow. Love this one. You'll be howling at tonight's full moon. Wait, you're a gypsy. That means music and festivities around the campfire, yes? I'll be there.

Marion said...

What a brilliant, moving poem!! I woke at 2:00 a.m. and marveled at the full-moon-light shining on my floor and through my gauze curtains. Thank you for sharing this. I always love your writings!!

Love & Blessings,
Marion

So beautiful, GypsyWoman :) And it sets the perfect background for a lovely evening tonight. THanks, love!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

thanks so much trish - yes music and festivities 'round the campfire so come on over - and such a night of golden moon tonight, too!

oh, but the gypsy thing doesn't necessarily preclude the howling at the moon thing! ;)

GYPSYWOMAN said...

greetings marion - yes, me, too - as a matter of fact i don't even keep the top half of my windows covered at all just so i can see the moon - actually, so that the moon can see me - and nights of full moon - nights of golden moon, be still my heart!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

thank you so much janece - like i said above, this is one of my favorite pieces - just sing-songs itself into my heart! thanks so much for coming by!

Really lovely....I swear...You need to find someone who writes music that you love and YOU and that person write some songs together--Your Lyrics--Their Music.
Give it some thought, my dear.

GYPSYWOMAN said...

hello there naomi! so glad you came by - and thank you so much for such inspiring and supportive words - i am humbled and honored - and i have given it thought - a lot of thought - but am afraid i've been guilty of being a bit overwhelmed at the where and with whom to start of it all - in any event, thank you again for your kind encouragement!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

hey lovelylinda! i love love love this image, too - is it not truly magnificent or what! but sadly, the beautiful full moon here is being blanketed by heavy layers of clouds! hope your moon shines on you, lady!
