Stream of Consciousness Saturday – July 11, 2020
Today’s prompt is to look at a nearby picture and write about the first song that comes to mind. Well, I looked at my phone’s photo gallery and the first photo I saw was of a colorful sunset filled with clouds which I took a couple evenings ago. The song I thought of was “Clouds In My Sunshine” by the group Redbone. The opening lyrics are:
"There's a cloud in my sunshine Rain on my parade My jeans got hole in it And my happy's got a sad"
So even though the photo I took of the evening sky is colorful, the clouds do seem to make one feel melancholy because another day is ending and you’ll not have that time back.
