Gypsy in her Soul

Gypsy in her Soul

Cool sand beckoned
at day’s end
Walking barefoot
along the shore
Much needed,
for her heart to mend
 
Breeze in her hair
Free as the birds
Thoughts released
up to the sky
Mind calming
No need for words
 
She paddled
In the watery pools
as Sandpipers chased
away from the flow
The beach in the fading light
twinkled like precious jewels
 
Walking off the pain
as darkness fell
The gypsy in her soul
reminded her once more
Time to move on
and these feelings will quell

    Sometimes, we have to leave certain memories or feelings behind. I really like that you used the idea of a gypsy to express. this.

        I’m glad the song worked for you today…. yes, he remains my biggest influence. And I bought a new book of his in Philadelphia, “The Flame”, Poems, Notebooks, Lyrics, Drawings, by Leonard Cohen, forwarded by his son Adam Cohen, its a great read for his fans !!
