Your prompt for Tuesday October 12th
John Lennon would have been 70 years old this October 9th. It is therefore fitting that our prompt this week is the opening line of one of his songs, Beautiful Boy.
Close your eyes, have no fear....
Use all or part of it within your poem or prose, and then leave the url of your post with Mister Linky and a comment.
