be born among the gypsies…

and so it is, as the magnificent pearl s buck directs, that i chose to be born among the gypsies – to the gypsy spirit of my wayfaring father lived happily in the moment never worrying about the yesterdays or the tomorrows – cherishing each single moment as if it were the first and the last – his wandering spirit giving rise to a lifetime of travel criss-crossing this beautiful country – all of which leads to my own nomadic perspective as we journey through this life and all those others here there and yon on roads less traveled – i hope you enjoy my musings along the way –

 the gypsy weeps

her eyes in midnight velvet

black mane tamed by no man yet

soft breasts of alabaster silk

fair skin like creamy milk

her hair spread like raven wings

when she speaks the gods do sing

lips all pouty and shimmering wet

she lives and loves without regret

spinning webs in ribbons of light

laid in shadows of darkest night

secrets hid in red red heart

yearning for a love not lived apart

wish she did with all her might

but life alone is her sad plight

and so it is in the forest deep

the heavens sleep


the gypsy weeps




 so who are you


i cannot bear the world to see

who i’m not but want to be

i’ve just been playing solitaire

to live in love i do not dare

while i profess to love another

i’ve loved another really never

i know you know it’s been a while

and i cannot resist your smile

so who are you

Jenean C Gilstrap

Since childhood, Ms. Gilstrap has had a love of words-of writing and other arts. An individualist, she chooses not to follow any pre-conceived pattern for the outlay of these words – rather, she allows them the freedom to forge their own path as they make their way from her heart to pen to paper. Her art work involves both photography and mixed media on large canvasses. She is a weekly featured poet in Yareah Magazine where her works have appeared for more than a year. Her piece The Granite God was the winning poem in Painted Bride Quarterly Sidebar #12 [2012]. Her work has been featured in performance poetry theatrical productions in Louisiana and her short story, Retribution, published in the Helicon Literary Magazine there. She and her gypsywomanworld blog are included as character/story elements in Ghost Key, the fictional work of award-winning author Trish MacGregor. Her first volume of poetry [2013], words unspoken, is available in both paperback and on kindle at amazon. She currently divides her time between her home in Louisiana and the east coast as she completes her second volume of poetry to be published in 2013.
