A Tribute To Womanhood

A second collaboration between Reynaldo and Anthea

Blue Eyed Gypsy Woman is first painting/poem in our 40 painting/drawing/poem collaboration. Reynaldo’s beautiful portrait Blue Eyed Gypsy Woman was the inspiration for my poem Blue Eyed Gypsy Woman. I would like to say that collaborating with Reynaldo is a joy and great honour because he is a brilliant artist and wonderful person.

Blue Eyed Gypsy Woman

Her crystal blue eyes sparkle
with the verve of life
reflecting the gentle rawness
of her journey that has
sculptured the woman she is now.

Her sensual lips quiver, vulnerable
with the sensitivity of her heart
revealing that through cruel experience
she has blossomed into a goddess,
gracious, wise and knowing.

Her blue necklace and earrings
dance with her blue eyes to expose
the serenity of her heart
Her red dress energies her
to keep moving from town to town,
Her brown hat attaches her to the earth.

Where ever she roams
She becomes part of the time and place
Learning from experience,
Living in the present,
She becomes one with the moment,
She is zen.

A free wind that blows
through one town to the next
Where ever she goes she shows
the local people they can be free
because freedom resides in her heart.

She is there and then she is gone
but she leaves indelible mark
on their minds.
Her beauty and her grace
etched in gold for all who look
and see her radiate love.

It just takes a moment to see her
kindness and warmth
Her true free spirit,
will last in their memory always,
Cause she has courage to keep flying.

Free like a bird of grace
she flies to the next place,
to start the next transformation
Because she is the divine feminine
the alchemist of our souls and for
all those who dare to look
will be forever changed.

Forever free and wild,
overflowing with kindness
she gives all who
greet her a touch of grace,
blissful joy and a
radiant smile on their face.

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.

    Sorry my French is rusty. je ne sais quoi (uncountable)

    An intangible quality that makes something distinctive or attractive.
    She has a certain je ne sais quoi about her.

  • Oh I like that je ne sais quoi and the meaning is perfect. That intangible quality…yes I believe she does have that. Thank you so much Rhino.
