Gypsy Blood


There’s a storm that’s been gathering in me — I’ve sensed it for some months. It’s come in small surges, receding each time. But that distance thunder has been there, and I’ve been counting the seconds between the lightning strikes and their snaps.

It wasn’t until last week that I was asked to stand still that the full rush came over me, and I felt it begin to move me.

The wind…it’s calling me. I hear my name carried on it, as it pushes me and knots my hair.

My gypsy blood is hot right now, and I need all of its magic. I need its electricity, its potency, its power.

New places are coming, but right now, all I know is the rain.
