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 leaves of love...



your words to me
slip ever slowly
into my heart deep
like the leaves
gently shimmering off
their majestic trees
from above
piling 

crumbling 
defining
life’s new love

I love the "... piling... crumbling... defining..." moment. Exquisite!

A very gentle poem... I love your description, comparing words falling into your heart, to the falling leaves off the majestic trees. Very beautiful words.
A lovely black and white image of trees too. They look quite haunting in the mist!

hi jo - yes, what i wanted to show is how words spoken from one heart to another can truly, by their having been said and accepted, "create" love - again - as when the fallen leaves crumble and decompose to add nutrients to the earth which then begins life again with that nourishment - thanks so much for coming by - your place is always a pleasure!
