Pixies for Peace, Singleton Hippie Art

Pixies for Peace
(c) Singleton 2008
Featured here now


I twirl my hair...
fingertips twyning,
macrame'ing
braiding
twisting
a cobweb of
yellow,
golden,
peace ~love for free,
casting
shadows on your dashboard...
christmas tinsel
scattered everywhere...
the tell-tale signs I've been here....



I fold tin foil,
roll it,
coil it
into sudden snakes,
1000 peace signs,
and suspend them
in
mid~air flight,
on broken branches,
graffitied stop signs,
broken bottle necks....



And in the glimmer,
the simmer,
the aftermath,
I watch you,
in make~believe...

smiling.....

You have amazing drawing skills.
Love the garland in her hair,,and her finger dangling the string.

Also love watching you coil the foil,, sunburts dancing in the mirror, reflecting golden yellow.

You take me back
my friend

to a day when liann
from liverpool
took her 10 year old
cousins clothes
to share with the kids
in the paediatric ward
at the Good Shepherd...

She had stuffed them in Lianns
suitcase before she came
a secret gift

I remember
taking that little box
of treasures,
woolen and denim
floral and so pink...

And giving them to kids
to moms...

And seeing the naked
face of joy

loosed streams
of
tears

weary eyes
softly burning
with hope

and seein little girls,
and even
little boys
running round in
jeans with pink flowers

They didnt care.

They were clothes.

And in the midst
of that open hearted
moment
when the world
was love...

I remember
watching

10 year old
Caitlyn's face

in make-believe

smiling...


My deepest love to you,
and the peace that comes full circle,

Babs....
a thousand denim notebooks and ballpoint pens...
those fingers raised
scribbled
in
Psychology
American History
15 minutes of home room...
two fingers
high.....
self portrait in a scribble....
not the face,
the hair,
the eyes,
but two fingers
raised
to kiss the sky....

And it's a broken record,
a chant,
a plea,
a beggness....
Just give me peace......

Somehow, I know, you know....
Peace~love sweet friend

Maithri....

And I'm
watching you
in the glimmer,
the simmer,
the aftermath,
going back
in make~believe
and real time....
kaleidescope colors
and glow in the dark smiles,
neon babies
dancing....
and I hear a drummer...

And Caitlyn's smiling to the music....

Peace~love my beautiful friend....
You are the gift.....
