Gypsy (Dancing Traveler)

Gypsy (Dancing Traveler)

I am aware of the ubiquitous rhythms

Which ones do I know?

Of which am I aware?

Can I move within all at once?

Or would my sinews rip and tear?

Should I dance the dance of heaven

While sitting stable on this spinning earth?

Should I swim against the current’s river?

Should I die while giving birth?

Do I follow only what is seen and known,

Or do I step out on the waves of my beating heart?

I am aware of the ubiquitous rhythms

They are flowing from my pen

I choose to dance to my beating heart

I am a traveler of the winds.

    I liked this poem. My parent lived like Gypsies and I became one. The wanderer is collecting places and memory for the pen and paper when he decide. Time to rest.
