Across The Universe



I have always loved the turn of a phrase. 

On the other hand, Mr. Something is musical. He can play piano, guitar and trumpet. I tried violin in high school but was soon encouraged to pursue other art forms. I think it had something to do with a rhythm deficit. 

Whatever.

Over coffee, on this cold January morning, the love of my life serenaded me with a few Beatles tunes including, "Across The Universe" ...
 
Words are flowing out like
Endless rain into a paper cup
They slither wildly as they slip away across the universe.
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
Are drifting through my opened mind
Possessing and caressing me.
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,
They 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.

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 opened ears
Inciting and inviting me.
Limitless undying love, which
Shines around me like a million suns,
It calls me on and on across the universe

Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

 - John Lennon, 1967

The best of both our worlds.
