The Whisperer, Singleton 2007, Outsider Art


The Whisperer
(c) Singleton 2007
SOLD


He didn't hear her coming
barefooted
after the airplane crashed
white noise
everywhere
and he didn't hear her going
banging his gears
eyes darting
on empty
highways
dodging
neon traffic cones,
dead witches rising
from the blacktop.

But in the quiet,
she whispers to him
and it all
comes
Mother Sun rising
back
a feather
dipped in
indigo henna ink
tattoed

And then he
remembers
what he
cant
forget

An indian princess
the only one ever
with golden-rod hair
and blue saphire eyes

smoke rings--snaking
the river--forking
her lips--tisting
my spirit--rising

the feather says:
now dance, the fire
now dance, the rain

the feather says:
blue eyes linger
like clouds over
the windswept plains

the feather says:
welcome to my own
special gust--float
with me to the river

She smiles in peace
her feather drifts
floats, bobs, sways
and my spirit follows
every step of my
captivating Pocahontas;
the river flies
a crow flows
the grass shines
and the sun, her love
grows--

...O your such a tease!!! I love her~ Who wouldn't... Yes sweetie I will E U sooo much going on up in here...death, life and everything inbetween. I will always stay in touch with my sweet soul sistas~ Just cuz you can't hear me see me, I do still exist in the real world... not to imply THIS WORLD isn't real. We are connected on a higher level. I have been peeking in on both you and Paige~ I do send my loveing vibes always your way. I see you girls have been growing and learning much~ So many times I wanted to write but I had so little time. I know you will always draw and be here and that IS so comforting~ Soon we will connect again for that you can be sure~ I see Eric is a new friend and also feels the connection with you and Skinny~ He is a beautiful soul also... xo

I love this poem dear Singleton,

I always get the sense that your Whisperings rise up from a place beyond words - a place where there is only the truth, only love.

Love, M.

Eric...
"the river flies
a crow flows
the grass shines
and the sun, her love
grows"

I love the words the wind brings to you
and the way
they tumbleweed
into
now....

And the way, you always know......

C.....Oh, I've always known you were here, I can feel you girl, and know, in the quiet, those are words that can wait until theres time and space to share.....It's been a whirlwind hurricane mudslide year.....the circle becomes a himalaya ride...and we're caught off guard. I wish you peace and love and health, and knowing, yes, we're here. Much love, my friend, keeper of so much.

maithri....Thank you. I don't know what my whisperings do, but I sometimes sense the wind catches them.....and carries them on butterfly wings....And maybe that's because so many times, I'm tapped on the shoulder by a shadow, kissed on the cheek by a dragonfly, tripped by a heart shaped rock....and know....to listen....
that someone is whispering to me....
just loud enough for me to feel them.....

In my world, I call that Tink!....the magic of being touched by someone's thoughts....
the whispered presence of them speaking ....

Much love, my soulful friends....

You know?
justgivemepeace should have the 'castles made of sand' picture as it's little avatar.

Or use the picture of the girl you sent to me, Justgivemepeace.

That would be a sight everyone loves to see...

singleton said...

Eric....Of course Just Give Me Peace should have justgivemepeace....Clink! You're the bomb!

singleton said...

Drips....If you are singing....then you're remembering.....and maybe, after all, you do know what the words are saying.....

Peace~love
