Preachin' to the Sky, Singleton hippie art 2008

Preachin' to the Sky
(c) Singleton 2008

It's 2 A.M.
and we're building
bonfires of beer bottles,
crackling, snapping,
breaking
in a pick-up stick pile,
amber
disco lights
under yesterday's moon.

In the morning
you won't remember
the perfect sequence
of the stories,
the way we played
hokie-pokie
with
the fire....
the spells
the magpie fairies cast...
but you'll smile....

And I'll keep preachin' to the sky....

Oh yeah,,,,I'm smilin',,,at the words, yes.

But especially smilin' at your talent for drawing,,,the intricate
weaving of the needle and thread,,,just an exceptionally wonderfilled piece of work!
Lovin' it!

Lol Sister Hippie Love!
This cannot really be a self-portrait, as your trademark hippie beads and peace sign are not dangling from your neck! ;)

Babs.....Smiling.....Thank you for your "wonderfilled" words....this little one has been tossed haphazardly on the coffee table (blanket chest from the trash) for about two weeks now....Changing in the late night hours, the early morning moments.....until suddenly, I was surprised to find her finished.....
The simply wonderful Skinny is the magpie fairy behind Cafepress....it's way over my head...and she's just seen this one for the first time, too....so once she cleans up the cathair she's sure to let her fly! :)

SweetSLB...LOL! Busted! And you know I never ever take 'em off! ILYSVVM!

Maithri....Woza Moya...A word I had never heard before you....and now....there it is....on my fridge....scribbled on the pages of my journal....whispered....over and over again.....Bring it on' friend, sing loud, again and again....Come change....Come peace...

Dance on my friend, sing to the angels, to the skies, to the butterflies.....Woza Moya.....

Peace~love
the perfect sequence....
