The Gypsy

a weary traveller, searching

along the unfurling winding road

for the next place of refuge

the cold, worn, faded sheets

reflecting stages of life

heart and mind on the move

carrying minimal baggage

unpacking as we move along

no hat, no house

the empty spaces I've roamed

searching for a home

a stone with no moss

only seeking


shelter from a storm
