Dance of the Butterfly, Singleton, 2007 hippie art

It's All Good.

You yank my chains,
pull my strings...
and I'm swirling, twirling
going low
on the dancefloor.
until the music stops...
long arms and legs tangled
in the moment~
suspended in silence.


But I fooled you.

I have butterfly wings,
Ever so translucent,
And I slip
Quietly from
your Friday night cocoon

I sometimes find myself somewhat mesmerized by some of your pieces. This one I can't help but stare at. She is sooooo pretty, but also I keep catching new details that I missed...hearts in the wings, answers in the corners...

singleton said...

Wouldn't that be great...
If the answers were right there,
in the corners........

I think they might be right there, in the corners hidden behind cobwebs & dog hairs, dust bunnies & such.

How beautiful. I'm glad you're back, I missed your beautiful art and words. I've been trying to do little feature posts about talented people on my photo blog, especially if they do their art for a living. Would it be ok if I mention you, and post your links and one or two of your creations? It's up to you, I'll understand if you say no.

SAS said...

Oh Anne, you talented beautiful girl! I am blown away that you would ask and would be honored. In this huge huge world that gets smaller every day, it's amazing that we should all cross paths...your good tidings and blessings and beautiful soulful art brought feelings of healing for Kimbies and all of us - that was, is, just so connected and spiritual.

And as for earning a living, If we could just keep the internet turned on, a few beers in the fridge, and some gas in the car...that would be great!

SAS said...

C-my words to you disappeared! I left them here days ago....
But we're so often just connected that you probably know what they said anyway! P,L, and thats the magic.....

SAS said...

OMG SLB...you know how I never remember the pictures after they leave until they show up here, and it's like meeting them for the first time again, and we freak because they are so prophetic in the after thought....Girl, I just freaked over this one, just did the whitey eye thing, and OMG...how weird is this?

photo blog girl said...

I like the idea of being tangled in nature (like she is in this piece). And then in the poem, she breaks free. So beautiful!

skinnylittleblonde said...

Reading some of these words, I find them rather prophetic...
This piece has been suspended, it suddenly (poof) became translucent, my chain has been yanked...
Singleton you never cease to amaze me!

singleton said...

but just for the moment....
SUSPENDED in silence.....

It's good Paigey, it's all good. There's a reason for everything. Even hell. So this little pull-my-hair-out cuss-like-a mad-dog moment has been brought to us for our entertainment pleasure... Oh yeah, and to kick us out of the backyard and into the big old world!

PBG....Thank you for your beautiful words....With the latest snafu going on, she's going to have to break free, literally!

Thanks for visiting my blog a few days ago. These works of art are wonderful. I love this one, the girl in the denim shorts. Beautiful poetry as well.

singleton said...

Ahhhh....You left me grinning all over ....with your combo of cats, fridays, freezings and boxer shorts ......! Hysterical! Thanks for your words here. And btw, I'm lucky....I own those denim shorts...good ole hand-me-down levis, shredded and faded...She's lucky I let her parade around on paper in them!

I'm at a loss for words as I read this blog. Prophetic or coincidental? Who knows. Enjoy the moment. Wrap yourself up in the cacoon and enjoy the warmth and comfort of being there if only for a short while. We danced, we laughed, we enjoyed the entanglement of our spiritual web. Recommended song of the Day? Garth Brooks "The Dance"

I see the end of time and the beginning of time and all the hours in between belong somewhere else. Really nice.

Justgivemepeace said...

singleton said...

Will the real Mr. Anonymous please stand up?
Suspended in silence...
it's all good.
Peace~love to you, baby

The friday night cocoon--escaped, before the morning pronounced its first ray of aether, before the trap slides closed. She will dance again on Saturday, we all hope.

Great work, Justgivemepeace, it really does give a person peace to read this kind of work and see the art and the story between them. Thanks for coming by my site that day. So cool. And Singleton, you are the best. Your paintings and lines and little prompts that flit by on the breeze... Thank you.

eric...
we wander around following the words of a chain letter, and stumble through doors we never Knew existed....some we just peek into, some we run from, and sometimes, we just "sit a spell"...

Your place was like that....
A sittin' place...
Cool and vibrant, full of rock and roll and deep clouds....
yup, a sittin' place...

Peace, new friend...
And yeah, she'll dance on Saturday....

tink!
