Take my hand.....

We're doing it....



Bailing.....
Throwing it all in the back of the car and driving off...



May seven sunsets and seven sunrises.... be blessed....

With perfect strangers we fall in love with...
Ice cold bar beers...
Spicy chicken wings...
Periwinkle soup ,
Barefoot sandals,
Bloody Marys,
Grafitti in the sand.....
Band-aid tattoos,
Found treasures...
Moonlit nights and the cat that jumped over them,
Coolers full of melting ice,
Salty white sheets covered in sand,
A margarita now and then,
Frosty window units dripping through the night,
Sunburns that feel good....
Rock and roll laughter....
Slow dancing to fast songs...
Spooky seawall stories...
And the yellow butterfly.......

Clink!
Here's to getting the days and nights mixed up...



For seven days and seven nights!



Feel the love.......

We miss you!

Missin' you guys. I'm leaving on Monday until the 29th.

Hope you're having a ball.

Peace to you.

Bardouble29 said...

Your back!!! We missed you!!

singleton said...

Oh guys, its'been great! We've had rock and roll hell, and then partyed til we found peace again, we've feasted on wild seafood and then starved, we've been in the sun, the rain, and danced in lightening storms. The car is still packed, the only thing I brought in the house is sand on my toes! Oh,and after 7 days of sunshine, I look a little like Edgar Winter with a spray-on tan! SLB and I missed you all, and thought of your often....

Spongy, we were yankin' on your hand! God, you're hard to get out of bed! Orhan, we had to buy a damned camera, now to figure out how to get the pictures out of it! Enemy...suitcases really are the way to travel! Bardouble...And there really is no place like home, however wrecked it is! Spado...safe travels, peace and love...Jay....we made sure there was plenty of that! Blue....next time joins us! JustaCoolcat...It was awesome, the hoping for it came true! Shrink...well you know, I'm forever running away! She...now I want a month, starting Monday! Katherine....sensory...a perfect word! Nefty...it was the bomb! Katherine....did you hear the clink! cheers! Savannah...it was sweet....and the sand was like sugar! Vicci....we know, girl, we saw you there! Princess....Thank you, may the circle be unbroken, feel the love...........

...It's a place no amount of hurt and anger
Can deface
I put things back together there
It all falls right in place--
In my special space
My special place" I love her words always did always will, well she's not performing anymore, however I did get a chance to see her three times in my life. I consider myself lucky...I could put a coin in the door of a john and get fifty to one, really lucky" Ha!!
Cool man. Y;-) Paddy

singleton said...

paddy,
we all need that.....
a place, a time, a face we can run away to
where everything suddenly makes sense again
and falls
into
perfect peace.....

That's what I'm talking about. Great poem. I love the quick list of elements that form wondeful memories for the heart, shaken or stirred, as they always are.

singleton said...

eric...
"shaken or stirred"....
I love that!

eric313 said...

Well, I'm shaken and stirred all the time--at least my heart is.
Great poetry calms storm,
always, Peace
