GYPSY WOMAN by Jacqui Lalita

There is a gypsy inside of every woman…

I have devoted my life to helping women release that free spirit within them that dances in the moonlight like a gypsy. 

May this poem help you find and awaken the Gypsy Woman in you, and set her free  on wings of magic and grace, straight into your life!

Gypsy Woman

Gypsy Woman sleeps outdoors
to be close to the wild call of coyote and crow

who remind her to always hold hands with freedom.

By night pure molecules of air laden with stardust
blanket her dreams

She spins tin cans of trust into golden opportunity

light and dark into effervescent rainbows of inspiration,

Passion and purpose adorn each adventure
 to beckon her imagination.

She is a wisdom seeker in flowing skirt

and a pocket full of intuition

that carries her across landscapes and cultures,

down rivers and up mountains,

with tambourine on one hip and trust on another.

She is a close friend of plant kin, an ally of ancient ways

dancing naked under full moons

whole and holy across the days.

She makes love at any hour
and brews her magic in the night

and with bare feet she goes
earthly breath into rays of light!

Gypsy woman! Gypsy woman!
Powerful is your stance!

Riding the tails of comets with a body made to dance!

Gypsy woman! Gypsy woman!
Glorious are your wings!

Riding the crest of waves with a soul that forever sings!

You twirl your dress as you spin
and the Gods come closer to peek

Oh Gypsy Woman, you are the freedom

each soul silently seeks.

Lover of life, wandering wayfarer,

fragrant gypsy moving to the beat of tambourines,

at home you are in the forest, dreaming in the desert,

visioning by the sea, wild hair flowing on the breeze,

your heart is ever-free!

Moving from village to village
naked as the moon,

skin glistening in the sun,

some raise their eyebrows as you pass

Beautiful woman come undone!

Your caravan is the Beloved,
your tribe spreads far and wide,

there is magic where you are

down double rainbows how you slide!

Go now to the shores of Avalon
or the mountain's mystic heights
loving every fearless moment, night by starry night!

MY HEART SEEPS by Edith Lazenby

Courage is not only facing fear, but also looking past fear, to see what lies it tells and truths it saves...
Sometimes I sit at a computer in trepidation. The house trembles and I wonder what I will find. 
Truth is not a fact or a feeling. It may rest on love’s heart and walk with integrity. It may stand beyond humanity in ways we can only imagine. Truth can be solid as earth and fickle as wind. But a wind can know stillness and the earth can crack wide open.
Tonight I found a stillness in a crack and managed to balance there...

My Heart Seeps
by Edith Lazenby
I cannot hold on And I cannot let go. I walk a path I don’t know. I feel moonlight But cannot see Its orb midst The cloudy cold. My hands tremble. My eyes tear. My toes wriggle To grasp earth. I want to stand Tall in the light Yet fear shadows all. Inside I crumble Under the weight I cannot shoulder.

FOR THE SISTERS by Tammy T. Stone

These days, I’m finding it difficult – along with many, many others - not to feel disheartened...
I'm disheartened by the feeling that chaos has descended upon us, at the negativity and fear, the anger and reactivity, the violent spirit of animosity characterizing the times. It’s hard not to give in to the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, even as we cling to the strong conviction that it is our positivity and our love that will prevail.
Every crevice of my heart goes out to the suffering (and we are all suffering when one of us suffers), and my heart aches for the untold numbers of women around the world who are immediately and devastatingly affected by recent decisions to cut funding to organizations vital to their health and wellbeing, a movement that horrifyingly undermines women’s sovereignty over their own bodies. Words do not do the feeling justice.
It feels to me that the earth itself is overturning, that our fragile grasp of what is right and true, of our incredibl…

IMAGINE A WOMAN by Patricia Lynn Reilly

This poem invites you to look upon yourself with loving kindness…
Gazing at your own true reflection, you will discover that everything you have longed for “out there” is already within you! I invite you to love your creativity fiercely. Faithfully plant seeds, allowing under-the-ground dormant seasons, nurturing your creative garden with love and gratitude. In the fullness of time, the green growing things thrust forth from the ground. It's a faithful, trustworthy process. AND it takes time and patience.  Blessed is the fruit of your creative womb! I invite you to trust your vision of the world and express it. With wonder and delight, paint a picture, create a dance, write a book, and make up a song. To give expression to your creative impulses is as natural as your breathing. Create in your own language, imagery, and movement. Follow no script. Do not be limited by the customary way things have been expressed. Your creative intuition is original. Gather all of life into your inner c…
