◊·Ω·◊ a gypsy’s haiku ◊·Ω·◊

"Gypsy Caravan" by Leon Goodman

we travel by night

welcomed nowhere in daylight

never to know peace

·Ω·

we are family

if  not by blood,  by our need

…safety in numbers

·Ω·

many bright colors

on our wagons  …like rainbows…

bring joy to our souls

·Ω·

finding safe haven

we sing and dance and spin tales

nights around campfires

·Ω·

then handsome men and

beautiful women make love

under starlit skies

·Ω·

ah, the gypsy life

may not be one of  peace   …but

it is filled with joy

·Ω·

yet another night

on the move again   …to where?

we care not as long as we are together

◊·Ω·◊
