unfulfilled love - unrequited love - love relinquished - life unlived...

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 - we'll share our stories of love around the campfire - come along -

poetry from the heart...


POETRY FROM THE HEART - my own words dedicated to all the words left unspoken, the acts left undone - the love unlived unfulfilled -

i dance with you...only in dreams...

tweet me, but tweet me gently, please!

the paper love...

your image - the mere artificial image - preempts such a torrent of long-controlled emotion as to be overwhelming, sweeping into the yesterday of us when we were us - twinkling eyes that from the moment we met shined into my heart into the me of me and never blinked stare back now through the time of our parting and into my secret soul, the soul that exists only for you - the exuberant smile i so love the smile meant only for me now lovingly leaps from the slick page - your scruffy shadow penetrates through the paper onto my face touching in the old familiar way - bulging thick curls always askew in my wandering fingers beg to be coddled on paper - your breathing again matches mine - your smell the only fragrance my nostrils can bear - all these things - there - there on the surface of nothing more than a pile of rags diluted by the waters of cannot be and forced into the slick false surface remaining - colored with artificial inks - there you are - not just your essence - but the you of you - the you of us -

I could just drown in your words in such a deliberate and seductive way and be lost forever. It goes without saying I am inspired again!

It's frightening how much we appreciate the same things, love! And wonderful! Your choices of art are pieces I actually possess. I love your site and will be here every day. Thank you for your comments on Keath's collards lol and I'm trying your recipe for the mustard greens...
Much Love,
Deborah

oh, hey lady D - too funny about the collards thing! so, are you making the fried hot water cornbread, too? and don't forget big fresh juicy tomatoes to go with it all - yes, very neat about the art, but then, don't great minds think alike? :)
thank you SO much for such nice comments - they truly are appreciated more than you can know - especially since i've been really in a creative quicksand lately - just lots of "distractions" in the form of "life" otherwise - know what i mean? anyway, so glad to find your note just now - please do come again, and soon and often!!!
peace and love back - jenean

oh - and listen, we'll have to swap our TAH stories some time too - i had my surgery in the late 70's but remember it crystal clearly!!! things like trying to pick up a bar of soap in the shower the day i got home from the hospital :)

have a great night! later - j
