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!
|Pictured is Jacqui Lalita|
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
spinning 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!
