Picture Yourself

Sky with

Diamonds

Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
And she’s gone

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
That grow so incredibly high

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore
Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds
And you’re gone

Picture yourself on a train in a station
With plasticine porters with looking-glass ties
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes

This little nostalgic trip back to the 60’s is compliments of the Beatles and their biggest fan, Merbear,  at Knocked Over By A Feather for her Beatles Contest.  Thanks Mer!  Lately I’ve been on my own crazy little contest-entering trip.

And no, I was NOT high when I did the art work, but in case you feel like you are now, after staring at it for a while,  I would just like to point out that the orange background is an actual picture of a jar of marmalade. I sure hope Paul is impressed and didn’t miss that.
