Peace is a Vintage Dress, Singleton Hippie Art

(C) Singleton 2009

















It was the light from the stairway
door
dancing in smokey shadows....
long arms reaching out and touching
each and every garment there....
rattling old metal coat hangers....
Making me Look....

And there in the attic,I found her....
A thousand memories old...
the dress she loved in.....
perfectly pressed between the cornflower blue shirt
and the musky old trenchcoat of a stranger...
And when my eyes and the light were one...
I knew...

This was the dress I would wear...
barefooted at the ocean's edge,
in cowboy boots to our pretend Saloon...
This was the dress
I would wear
in my dreams.......

Watercolors, markers and Ink on a love~worn Sunday.....

Peace is a pair of comfy shoes...
Peace is a little bit of laughter...
Peace is a breath...

a breath of salt air....
the wind tattered with kite strings....
words scribbled in wet sand....
