    In the artic tundra
    I've looked for you --
    my heart was trapped
    between the ice caps
    and the tree lines of
    a permanently frozen
    subsoil region
    needing a tune-ful
    of a hot Texan Jip C. Man
    to warm over
    the cold blast
    that incapacitates me

    And I am searching for a
    Jip C. Man in a warmer
    climate to elevate me

    Emotional commotion
    has disturbed the tranquility
    inside of my mind leaving
    me dousing wet
    in tears that tumble -

    dried.

    Placing me in a whirlwind
    -- upswept
    falling end OVER end
    southern tumbleweeds
    that withered became
    dense and rolled indiscriminantly
    in your direction
    southbound

    and ... that same wind blew
    me until I was caught by the weighted base
    of your moisture in a flat-bottomed
    glass without a handle

    I became the stem --
    ...the contents
    of his drinking glass

    Jip C. Man lifted me
    towards his lips
    and kissed
    as he drank
    from me carefully...

    I will forever quench
    his thirst ... drink of me
    Jip C. Man
    ... you will never be full




    *Come dance with me???

    Seven Deserts To Find You

    I sought a soul
    on Saharan winds
    night-time fires
    brought hints of cinnamon
    but not her....

    I wandered the Kalahari
    in searing heat
    and broken safari
    only amber sun
    answered my
    stumbling questions
    but..
    not
    her.

    So I crossed The Gobi
    and Takla Makhan
    essence afloat like
    advance scouts
    dune side collapses
    gave deceptive refuge
    in delirious visions
    thoughts in
    caravan fashion
    rumbled

    YOU

    in
    black bedouin robes
    eluding me in
    shimmering
    oasis fashion
    leaving
    me marooned
    in
    mirages of
    pretend
    encounters in
    cooler climates
    I awoke to
    sandy darkness..
    but

    not...

    her.

    Entering the Atacama
    spirit in doubt
    despair gripping
    anaconda fist
    squeeze heart
    ripping...

    then there
    she
    was

    back
    with the living.

    and
    it was

    you.



    whatever desert you find yourself crossing ...take me along..Ive been there..

    welcome back N2 my friend
    I miss our cypher.

    On A Continuous Journey
    GYPSYMAN

    Part the Red Sea ... you'll find me

    As water spouts up from beneath
    the earth's surface
    so too does your vibe

    Between pockets of
    saturated dirt and rock
    -- his voice carries
    the song of the sea's
    und U lation
    and with his tear springs
    flowing into dry wells
    my heart returns a
    faint cry

    I can't reach him
    by air ... nor by land

    I ride the tide's waves of Love
    when he sends them rolling in --

    Eminence.

    And with the sudden gathering
    of force that moves me
    I'm left bathing my
    body in the coolness of
    a southern stream

    Have I become an uprooted tree?

    Without growth ??
    ... until
    he toils the earth
    ardously -- digging and
    rummaging the for
    the fruit of my being

    I furnish him with nourishing
    food for thought
    ~ allowing him to eat from
    the edible side of my guava tree

    His arms safeguard me
    as he prevents my soul from
    drowning under nature's
    raging seige

    Natural Provider
    -- Absolute Security

    When the gypsy parts the Red Sea
    to get to where I stand
    He becomes the band --
    I ~~ the ring

    and

    together we are the
    unified body that forms
    the circadian rhythm
    of life --

    We revolve around
    one another --
    having no limits ... no boundaries

    ... INCESSANTLY ...
