My gypsy woman

Women come and go like those in a museum looking at Michelangelo.


My gypsy woman

where have you gone tonight?
Have you flown to a crescent moon
cradled in the arms a wandering minstrel
strumming his guitar to the melody of your voice?

Or have you passed through a village
where the wailing sound of a tango waltz
fills the air and soon surrounds
your body in the darkness of a dance away lover?

Are you wandering through a gallery
gazing absentmindedly at abstract colors and forms
only to be taken by a sculptor
and cast into an alabaster Venus de Milo?

Then, are you hearing a plaintiff voice
calling you from a candlelit room
with Christmas lights dancing on the ceiling
reading poetry to you
and to you alone?


Tonight,
find your way home by moonlit paths
take off your ribbons and bows
lie near my sack of poems
swallow the words
let them color your dreams my gypsy woman.

Richard Bibeau /14
