The Color of Drums
(c) Singleton 2010
lazy water balloons falling
from the sky,
plopping and somersaulting off the tin roof.
a whipporwill in the distance,
sang to us in chords only a violin knows by name.
And I cried.
Until I heard the drums.
The primitive pounding of my weathered heart.
In technicolor rhythm."
Words and hippie artwork (c) Singleton 2010.
Painted on a rainy soulful day. Watercolors, markers, sharpie.
