Continuum continuum 
Not just today or tomorrow 
At sunrise or sunset
But lifetime to lifetime 

From love to hate
Not much has changed 
Everybody in a haste
Continuum continuum  

Somewhere else
In the neverland next door
Birds chirp and the cats laze
The trees bloom and the riverwater plays
Not much has changed 

 

Continuum continuum

This is interesting.  When I read it, I hear it spoken with lively syncopated background music.  And, for some reason, “Continuum continuum” always comes out “ continuing continuum.”  Thank you …

Hi Takoda, thanks for your kind words :)

You're right, "Continuing Continuum" does have a more natural flow while attempting a recitation.

I guess I had liked the idea of giving a little elongated pause between the reiteration, which seems to work with the word "continuum" considering the way it rolls off the tongue. And so it got stuck in my head, as I pondered over the simple ironies of life :)
