Swimmin' up hill.....

I fall in face first. Imagine the blue Kool~aid waves crashing on the blow up shoreline. Slip into my mermaid skin and day dream. Five more days. My hair billows out on the surface, a thousand golden sea snakes swimming in a halo.... I open my eyes wide, wider, and wait. My contacts float off, tiny cavier eggs finally free. I smile for them. Five more days. And then no more counting....

I float in a circle, upside down and backwards, the current finally catching up to me, and then turn around and plow into it! This is how it feels when you take off from the seawall running, running, running and the ocean finally laps you up, whisks you away, slathering you with kisses. I can't wait. To be free......



To sit perched on the edge of the earth, a sandpiper, digging to China....
To dance under the mist machine and the neon light of the moon, 17 again, but wiser....
To hear the sea monsters rumbling, grumbling, tumbling in the night and watch them wallow backwards, foamy tails between their legs, when the Sun comes out ....
To slurp beer can oysters
and spurt salt water to the sky....
To build Peace Castles and scribble sand graffiti with my toes....
To sing in the choir, the next rock~n~roll band, the outside shower....
To paint henna tattoos on the legs of strangers
and the backs of friends....
To play driftwood, floating until I wash up on the shore...
To feel the love.....

I climb up the rickety plastic ladder and laugh. Peace is comin'..... Five more days, baby!

"Peace is coming"

Oh friend... Let it come...

I am so exhausted today
I can barely breathe

but
breathe I do
in the hopes that tomorrow
there will be a new sun
under which we'll
find the strength to make
love to the world
again,

Thank you for whisking me away
from it all
for these few precious moments,

My love to you,

Peace~Love - Let it be,

Maithri

Sandy Kessler said...

good for you !!!. wow is Landon cuter every time I tune in ??Yes .

singleton said...

Maithri....

Peace is coming
because we believe....
And for every
moment,
dance,
dream,
that we forget it,
she sidesteps us,
courtsies out of our reach....
flirting with us,
daring us,
to remember....

peace is a window
and butterflies are free...

Much love to you friend
and wishes....

I believe.....

singleton said...

Suchacoolcat.....Ahhhh, driftwood....rolling, tumbling, knees scraping bottom, nose kissed by the sun....bobbing, dipping, dripping in seaweed....
Laughing!
You know.....
And that's why you understand....

Sometimes, you gotta be free....

Peace. Yes. Soon. I pray.

singleton said...

Saintly.... Thank you....
Pray.....
The big bad world is rufflin' our feathers, rockin' our world, trying to get us to tuck tail and give in.......
But we're runnin'....
as fast as we can....

Soon, my friend, soon!
