Gypsy Woman

Gypsy Woman

A Poem by Fran Marie


My tarot  cards hold destiny. lines in hands tell

   your story.. Ripe as mango  fruit sweet juice of

life flows from within your veins

 you stand on the ridge of golden years

 as an army of angels play

the angelical music of the harp.


perhaps the cards show no kindness

yet it is necessary to be truthful than to

say there is much hope in future relations

of any kind.. no residual love awaits ,,,

I see these things for I am that Gypsy Woman

really interesting piece of work here. I love your use of words and the overall lingo of the piece as it really accentuates the topic. I also really appreciate the way you conveyed the difficulties of the gypsy woman where sometimes her reading may bring unpleasant results but its better to stick to the truth rather that to comfort the hearts of the one being read as its always hard to deliver bad news. Very well done. And keep up the good work.

A fascinating personal introduction to a subject I must confess intrigues me, and has done for many years..Actually, I have a dear friend Clive who used to read the Tarot Cards... He did in fact read my wife's and told her she would eventually marry a blue eyed and very handsome Sagittarian... that was three weeks before she first met me... He also told her many other things that came true... He declined to read mine because by then, he knew too much about me.... All true except the bit about me being handsome.. honest............. Many thanks Jazzy........... Neville

I think this piece is interesting and has a lot of potential, but it doesn't feel "finished" to me. I think the first thing you need to do is decide why you break your lines where you do. The words that begin and end lines receive extra emphasis, and don't underestimate the power of putting a word or phrase on a line by itself.

At first a sweet, then an uncomfortable poem. Cautionary, or maybe just blunt about "the cards" and life. I think you mean something by the diminishing fot and underlines, but I am too thick to figure it out. She leaves me with a bad taste, and yet I find myself wanting to defy her and prove her wrong!!

Thanks.. the underlining is simply one of the rules for contest entry..of ten words given..
With each line you give glimpses into a deeper world, a world of sacred secrets. The words and soul of her entice one to come into the light of her revelation. When I was young I met such a gypsy girl with her tarot cards. Was pulled away just as she was revealing my path. You made me wonder what if.

interesting to read ...editing is all over the place ...me thinks on purpose ..really think the trailing off of thought and font in closing is effective and creative ... very different ... but it is after all .. the Gypsy Woman! ;))

This piece reminds me of my aunt. She is what I always picture when I think of a "gypsy women." She burns sage to keep ghosts away and back in the day, she wore flowly pants and tie dyed shirts and played her guitar for dimes and nickels in the park, she smoked weed and didn't settle down in one place or marry or have kids. She was truly a free spirit. Thank you for sharing this.
