>Little Honey Napowrimo #1

>She was the little honey

And every man’s delight even a lady or two

Pretty girl with eyes as green as emeralds

She lived in Electric Ladyland

Where the landscape was filled with tulips

every colour, multihued

She was the little honey

And spoke only tales of mystery and imagination

A voice just like the songs heard

only in your heart

liquid mercury floating in the air

He came to her and told her things

Like the revolution starts now

He took her hand in his

He led her to the Purple rain

Oh the little honey say bye bye

*Process notes: I ended up with quite the eclectic assortment here.

Electric ladyland -Jimi Hendrix

The revolution starts now – Steve Earle

Purple rain – Prince

Little honey – Lucinda Williams

Tales of mystery and imagination – Alan Parson’s Project
