John Lennon by Cynthia-Blair John Lennon by Cynthia-Blair
a tribute to John Lennon
dedicated to my friends ~agosbeatle *colt51 ~brianv948 =NKVGBD and all the other Beatles fans out there :)

in this time of peace and goodwill near the Winter Solstice, who better than John to remind us that 'all we need is love'? :peace:

listening to "Across The Universe"
here's a video link: [link]

Words are flying out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting thorough my open mind
Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which
dance before me like a million eyes
That call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a
restless wind inside a letter box
they tumble blindly as
they make their way across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of life
are ringing through my open ears
exciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which
shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Just stunning, the focus of the eyes really draws you into his iconic glasses, and the colours are so energetic and blissful! Your gallery is very inspiring!

Thank you so much! I am honoured!
I entertained the idea of doing his glasses the way he would have drawn them, line-art Lennon style...but it wouldn't have worked out properly.
That's just the way John made me feel, and I loved that song, the way you just float along with it :floating:
