yoko – clouds
Shortly after their meeting in November 1966, John Lennon left for India with the Beatles to study meditation. During that time, Yoko would send letters to John.
“She would write things like,
‘I am a cloud. Watch for me in the sky.’”
In the middle of a cloud I call your name.
In 2017 Yoko was awarded credit as co-writer of John’s song, ‘Imagine’ based upon audio tapes of John saying that she inspired it.
Imagine the clouds dripping.
Dig a hole in your garden to
put them in.
“Actually, that should be credited as a Lennon-Ono song because a lot of it-the lyric and the concept-came from Yoko. But those days I was a bit more selfish, a bit more macho, and I sort of omitted to mention her contribution. But it was right out of Grapefruit, her book. There’s a whole pile of pieces about ‘Imagine this’ and ‘Imagine’ that’…”
– John Lennon

Whisper your dream to a cloud.
Ask the cloud to remember it.
