Peace Rising, Singleton 2008 Hippie Art

PEACE RISING
(c) Singleton 2008

SOLD

Worn out markers on
8 1/2 x 11 spiral bound card stock

Closer to the edge,
and then down,

down,

down,

into the rheumy river,
rolling,
tumbling,
moving with the current,
darker,
further,
faster
until there was deep silence and
the coffee colored sea became a velvet blanket,
and we hid,
there in the underworld,
in buried peace....

floating,
dreaming...

Her laquered fingernails,
slithers of morning,
raked across the river bed,
disco lights at dawn,
and I knew then,
what I know now...

Follow the light....



the endlessness rises....

You leave me breathless...

So much so that I had to go back and inspire these words again and again...

till they breathed me back to life this evening...

"I knew then what I know now"

You have always known my friend...

The wild unvarnished truth... that soft embracing peace.... that comes from surrendering to the mystery...

to the endlessness

to the ebb and flow of the untamed river,

Thank you for liberating us with your words of peace~love,

My deep love to you,

M

Freedom....
I hope I see that sunrise forever...
over and over again....

peace to you too, and
light....
endlessly

Maithri....
I cling to peace
like a spoiled child on the pants leg of his Mama....
grasping at straws
and calling them sunflowers for a day...
and somedays it wears me out,
and somedays....
it's the only thing that gets me through....
I know you know....
Peace is the treasure....
and
we have to follow every dirt road,
mountainside,
speghetti loop,
leading there....

Much love my sweet sweet friend

Ibeati....Clink! To the light....

Peace~love
it Rises....

We have to keep following that light. No matter what anyone might say, it really boils down to:
"The way, the truth,and the light"
It is what is, and always will be!
