One Love, Singleton Hippie Art

One Love (C) Singleton 2010 "We were wreckless... fatefully falling into each other's accidental arms and holding on tight. We were in Love... once...... for a very, very short time... and forever... Love is Wild like that" Words and Artwork (c) Singleton 2011 Painted at the edge of the waves, in the trickle tide, in the memory pool....Hippies are like that....

Tallulah Sees Trails, Singleton Hippie Art

Tallulah Sees Trails
(c) Singleton
Portrait of My Sweet Hippie Cat, a Tribute to Tallulah

"Tallulah Joe,
balanced on a tightwire,
Tuxedo legs dangling
and so black...that
He's almost Deep Purple
on the Eight Track,
20 years back...

His green eyes wander,
rheumyand irredescent,
circled in slivers of high yellow moons...

and then He sees them...
The make~believe world of a Stoned Cat on the Bar...
Ribbons of color,
fireflies under disco lights.."

Words and Artwork (C) Singleton 2010
Oh, I'll so miss the ever presence of Tallulah Joe draped on the Bamboo Bar...seeing things we'll never know.
Peaceful disclaimer: Tallulah was rescued from a not so friendly place...Where the bad people go. He settled into a long and happy life here in hippieland....but every now and then, he saw things......every now and then he was haunted.....

Today, he rests in Peace.

Shroom for one More, Singleton Hippie Art

Shroom for One More
(c) Singleton Hippie Art

"Two tattered tents,
one Bayou Blue,
two painted ladies,
one pup,
and three
Coleman specials
tossed like confetti on the river banks....

Our little Tent City...

Hippie Kingdom on the hill...

And when he said...
"Can I come, too?"
I whispered
to his back,
to his shadow...

"Scooch in closer
to the circle,
we've got shroom for one more"

Watercolors and markers scribbled and painted in the Saturday sunshine, while all the neighbors drove by and politely waved and nodded at the 'hippies next door', and the soft purr of Magic's airbrush, paintin' campsite banners, lullabyed me The Allman Brother's Wanee Fesitval 2011! We can't wait to get there! :)
