Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds


PHOTO PROMPT – Copyright – Kelly Sands
As he lay upon the grassy knoll and gazed at the clouds above, Kevin was aware of a face looking down upon him.  He recognised it from the visions he had, the voice booming down like the distant rumbling of thunder.

“Kevvo mate how ya goin?  Ya lazy drongo get off ya bum and do something ya slacker”.

Really?  The big guy in the sky nags likes all the Sheilas in his life.

“Don't get your knickers in a knot big guy, it’s all good”.

Kevin blew a cloud of smoke in the air.

“Damn this shit is good”.

I might not approve of what Kevin does but then fictional creations have a life of their own. Have made an update to the story to change it from the obvious to an implied reference now.
Here is the the link to the reference to the Beatle's song

  2. Hope he doesn't go psychotic. Thanks for the music. I remember it well.
    (I think it's Sheilas, sport.)

    1. Hopefully he won't, one never knows. Oops it is indeed 'Sheilas', thanks for picking up that typo Patrick.

  5. Dear Subroto,

    Thanks for teaching me a new word. Sheilas I knew, drongo I didn't although in the context the meaning came through loud and clear. That's certainly an hallucination that took on a life of its own. Good one.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  7. It is sad how hard people try to pass the time when in truth it is time that is passing them by minute by unstoppable minute. Beautifully captured within your self-inflicted fetters of a hundred words.

  8. Don't Bogart That Joint, My Friend -- another great song title (from the movie Easy Rider) that would have went well with this prompt. Fun piece, Subroto.

  10. Dear Subroto, Good job - and I suppose he was high on a joint or two. Good piece - although I wish I could have had a chance in my youth to indulge in it. Thanks! Nan :)

    1. Thanks for reading & commenting Nan. Personally I would never use it but as a fictional device it works :-)
