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]

Salut, la Gitane,

Tu as finalement trouvé une porte de sortie pour ce blogue qui maintenant te pesait. Dommage en un sens, c'est un point final, la disparition d'un endroit où j'aimais venir à pas de loup sans prévenir.

Mais je suis heureux pour toi. Tu continues à créer après tout, dans cette langue qui est la tienne et que tu manipules si bien. Il me reste tout de même un drôle de sentiment… peut-être suis-je un peu jaloux ?

•••••••••••••••••

I chose to write what looks like an epitaph to Words Unspoken in a French that will escape in good part to Google Translator. Words that don't mean what they mean… such is Life.

The outside world will simply be a bit colder, nothing to be done whatever what they say.

From Out There

Roger Gauthier said...

... and pray tell me, dear you, why this "approval" thing for the comments? Just asking…

Trish said...

As Gypsy's followers already know, you won't find poetry like this anywhere else in the universe. Frost and Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath are writhing in their graves

Pat said...

Iknow how dificult it is so many congratulations.

GYPSYWOMAN said...

mon cher roger - rien n'est jamais définitif - surtout pas en amour - et quand une porte se ferme, cela signifie tout simplement une autre s'ouvre ou est ouvert et il n'y a qu'à y entrer - je vous remercie de faire de cette langue à moi ce qu'elle est et pour être heureux pour moi, comme je suis pour vous dans votre monde là-bas - et souvenez-vous de la porte est toujours ouverte ici pour vous -

GYPSYWOMAN said...

how could i ever possibly thank you adequately for such words, trish...

GYPSYWOMAN said...

yes, i know you know, pat - and i thank you so much! xxx

Congratulations! I knew you would do this someday and I wish you much success. You must be proud. I am back online after a long, long, break. Starting out slow again and just wanted to drop by and take a seat alongside your fire and visit for a spell. Cole
