A to Z Blogging Challenge: G

G is for Gypsy



I dance on foreign ground,
always teasing out
the unfamiliar with my toe,
always moving town to town,
selling snake oil from the back
of a painted wagon.

At night the moon comes,
full and wagging light,
holding up a silver dollar 
for me to follow,
making that empty shell
of a promise again,
saying this time
it will bring me home.


  1. Have you hear The Gypsy Song by Suzanne Vega? It's always been one of my favorites. Good post! Good luck with the challenge!

    1. I'm not familiar, Dianna. But I'm going to go look it up. I'm always searching for great music to add to my collection!
