if i were…

keeping my eye on the sky, i’d look like this:

if i were playing along with julochka and debi, i’d look like this…

if i were a month i’d be october, full of light,
if i were a day i’d be friday night in front of the fire,
if i were a time of day i’d be midnight,
if i were a font i’d be handwritten,
if i were a sea animal i’d be a dolphin,
if i were a direction i’d be north and teach you to find me at night,
if i were a piece of furniture i’d be a strong chair to sit in,
if i were a liquid i’d be tea,
if i were a gemstone i’d be lapis lazuli,
if i were a tree i’d be a willow swaying in the breeze,
if i were a tool i’d be my grandfather’s wrench,
if i were a flower i’d be monkshood,
if i were an element of weather i’d be a soft misty rain,
if i were a musical instrument i’d be a harmonica played by dylan,
if i were a color i’d be periwinkle,
if i were an emotion i’d be longing,
if i were a fruit i’d be a blackberrry,
if i were a sound i’d be a swallow’s chirp,
if i were an element i’d be copper, like my hair,
if i were a car i’d be a 1967 chevrolet impala,
if i were a food i’d be, without question, chocolate
if i were a place i’d be the adirondack mountains,
if i were material i’d be wool,
if i were a taste i’d be cinnamon,
if i were a scent i’d be sandalwood rose,
if i were a body part i’d be a foot,
if i were a song i’d be mr. tambourine man,
if i were a bird i’d be a hawk and fly myself like a kite,
if i were a gift i’d be a handmade sweater,
if i were a city i’d be seattle,
if i were a door i’d be french and frame a pretty garden,
if i were a pair of shoes i’d be sexy but comfortable,
if i were a poem i would never, ever tell you
the meaning behind the words.

    I am quite late this morning, not yet out the door to work, but had to stop by & read this. You are full of fragrances here, and my mouth watered when I read blackberry. A luscious list. And yes. A harmonica played by Bob Dylan. That’s pretty wonderful. 🙂

    I love this line…

    And when you said your favorite fruit was blackberry, I thought you were referring to the electronic one 😛

    You must smell awfully good! 😉 Love your list. You (and Debi) have inspired me to do one, but it will be later in the week.

I cherish your comments...
