the gypsies' journey...

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 - following the path of the sun and the trail of the stars to worlds known and unknown from yesterday and today into tomorrow -

this is a written and visual journal of my own travels - imagined and/or real -
imagined and/or real - a STREAMOFCONSCIOUSNESS telling of my own personal thoughts feelings experiences - interspersed with words and images of others - with things defined by most as PARAnormal which - for me - all my life - have been PERFECTLYnormal -

SO come along with me and we'll dance among the stars under the sun and over the moon - we'll share our stories around the campfire - together -

THE GYPSYWOMANWORLD

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]

deep inside her belly...


she lay her down on the jungle floor
her self was hers to be no more
she reached inside to oceans shores
and opened wide the mystic doors
her mighty mate he did roar

then deep inside her belly

first came the shape
the shape of things to come
the shape of all or none
the shamen did not shun
her belly now the rising sun

then deep inside her belly

next came the scream
of all your ancient dreams
nothing now as it seems
pray your gods your soul redeem
the universe her birthing stream

then deep inside her belly

came now the spirit from within
bursting through her bleeding skin 

and issued forth in ravaged sin
the cosmos turn to spiral and spin
with no beginning and no end

deep inside her belly

these words came not from me at all but from the image itself - from the characters there - from their story - i was only their instrument - these are their words -

enjoy -

I love the "deep inside her belly". Isn't that where our truths come from? There are so many different meanings here, Jenean... so much to understand. And sometimes it's best to let the images just speak to us... because then they whisper to us of their spirits, what comes from their bellies, what wants to be said. And we end up here. I loved the image, and loved the words more.

nevine - thanks for coming by and as always leaving such a meaningful message - i loved this print when i first saw it and it literally "spoke" to me - and you're so right, our truths do come from the deep inside, letting us know what it is they speak! thanks again!

Cole said...

Fantastic Jenean! You definitely tapped into that image and brought forth such raw and powerful words. I most definitely agree with Nevine's comment. Wonderfully channeled.

Powerful. I always leave this blog feeling joyful - and humbled by your creative spirit, Jenean!

Marlene said...

I like how you let the picture speak to you..There was much in the telling of this picture..I really enjoyed it!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

hi cole! well, in this case, it really was the image speaking - thanks so much for coming by - and for such meaningful comments always!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

in this case particularly, trish, couldn't help thinking of you all - many thanks for your caring encouragement!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

actually, marlene, it's that way a lot a lot of the time - that i just let the image "speak" - let it tell its story - i literally go back and forth between writing and looking at the image - anyway, thanks so much for your comments which mean SO much!

jenean:

the words as well as the image left me with a deep thought. Everything indeed comes from deep inside the belly.

Joy and love,
Susan

hi susan - thanks for coming over - i thought the image alone was so thought-provoking and it seemed to have a mind of its own - so - there it is! :)
