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]

o heart of mine...

o aching heart
that found you once
tied as you were
in a web of woe
and loved you more
than life could bear
and out of love
set you free
to live in dignity

love divine

o breaking heart
that loved you so
and loves you still
and always will
to find you cut
those ties that bind
and walked away
had i but known
i would have stayed

love of mine

o broken heart
rigid with regret
how can i now
e’re forget
what i had
and what i did
had i known then
what i know now
i would have

i would have

o heart
of mine

Trish said...

I sensed that! Really beautifully written, Gypsy.

Broken once in love and again in death - powerful!


there are many ways to be broken...and many ways to die...sadly...

thank you so very much for coming by and especially for leaving such a kind comment, alex! :)

I wish you would write the whole story.
In my own case - although painful it was therapeutic.


my book of poetry "words unspoken" was to be the "book" that told the story - however - it seems the story remains unfinished somehow - parts of it will never be finished - how can it be -

but perhaps you're right anyway, pat...thank you so very much for your comments here and always for your insight and friendship...

A broken heart can mend.
I hope yours does!

I found you at Sixpence & a Blue Moon :)

Tony Buddieschef said...

Am I missing something here, but how long has your heart been broken? Forever it would seem looking through your archives. Was he really worth it?


to TB: oh, i think it matters not the timing of breaking of a heart, sir...when it comes to love, it's always worth it, is it not...

and i thank you for coming by - and for browsing - especially for the comment - and hope you'll come again -

oh, and the words of the phoenix from glasgow are missed here, as well...


hello, margie...thanks so much for your kind words here - and for following along - hope you'll find this a comfy place to sit and browse and enjoy a few words now and then...have a wonderful remainder of your week - and thanks again! see you soon!
