Nomad woman dressed in

ancestral lace,


Turquoise and onyx

decorate your


Bedeck the campground fire.

Red dirt and black ash.


Crackling, silver charms

lay across your

breasts and waist.

Poured into your womb

a traditional death,

bearing a crystal fall.


Sway to your feet, undulate,

stir from your ashes and spit.

Wet the men who use and abuse.

Too, too beautiful my glory girl.

For their urgings of smoked

sausages and disgrace.


Tell me mortal goddess,

what can you see? Do

you see it, will you?

Shine your light, sing

your songs of love for

one the one coming

to free you.

Reviewed by Regis Auffray 9/15/2010
This poem is worthy of much more than a single reading, Janet. The imagery is vivid and effectively conveys the ambiance of the dancing woman and her surroundings. As well, there is a stirring awakened within my soul to the deeper meaning behind the verses. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

So easily conjures up images of dancing gypsy girls around a campfire inside a circle of brightly painted wagons...but also the ache and pain of lonliness encroaches in the latter lines. Well done Janet.
