Wandering Gypsy

Your need to be free pulls at your soul.
To feel the wind in your hair
lifts your spirit high above.
Walking barefoot across the earth,
feeling more than the soil beneath your feet.
Sensing all that has gone before.

You are the current in a river,
each swirling wave a sense of your own being.
A scent in the breeze.
The warmth of life drenched by the Sun.

I sit in a world of four walls.
Staring through a pane of glass.
At a sky alive with stars.
I wonder which one you're beneath tonight.
A Gypsy lost in time
or a Rebel searching for life.

    Ahhh . . . I lived the gypsy lifestyle for what I like to call my lost two decades. I didn't go into it with the romantic notion as you have described in your well-written poem, nevertheless I did live it. I enjoyed "Wandering Gypsy."

    To my favorites. This is an amazing write, and so so true of the gypsy's heart, for one resides in me! :) I have written on this theme. I believe the poem is called, My Gypsy Heart...or something.....can't remember now. One also on the gypsy moon. A favorite theme of mine......Very well crafted. A joy to read.

    by the way this one you wrote fits my MOM perfectly... ((RIP)) her soul is out there somewhere. In another life,,, and i bet there she is still a rebel and flows like the river and wind... I might be a little like her.. But, I'm no where near the wandering for that special feel. This one is nice and refreshing.. love the flow and imagery you left behind... xox~ LINDA

    I love the free spirit feeling throughout this poem you so masterfully expressed within your words. Thanks for enjoying all my Halloween poems, that's from watching too many horror movies since I was a kid. lol What I call a good Halloween night: Sitting back on the couch with some buttered popcorn and watching Halloween marathons. Have a great Sunday. Hugs and love, Gail

    Good - except for the last line. Did you ever hear the song "Gypasy" by the Moody Blues? Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish

    Reminds me a bit of the song of yesteryear that was a hit for both the Impressions and Brian Hyland. I have never seen a single episode of "The Big Bang Theory". I don't get to watch very much television. Now that you have mentioned Barenaked Ladies performs the theme song, I will have to check it out.

    A very unique topic and expertly written... Loved how you wrote it. I saw a band of gypsies every summer near my grandfathers home on a lake... The congregated across the lake every summer at the same spot. But never actually met them... I was a small child...

    Simunsen Avatar Thomas Simunsen Date: 10/25/2013 9:31:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    I have only met gypsies as free spirits, never a 'real' gypsy but I guess we don't get them over here. thanks for stopping by Carol
