Forever — is composed of Nows

by Emily Dickinson

Forever–is composed of Nows–

`Tis not a different time–

Except for infiniteness–

And latitude of home–

          From this–experienced Here–

          Remove the Dates–to These–

          Let Months dissolve into further Months–

          And Years–exhale into Years–

Without Debate–or Pause–

Or Celebrated Days–

No different Our Years would be

From Anno Dominies–

The longest journey starts with a single step, but one doesn`t need to physically move a muscle if you possess a fertile imagination. Emily was a reclusive person who had an intense, emotionally passionate inner life which was consumed by her poetic genius. Perhaps because of this, she was subject to enormously energetic mood swings that shared the themes of love, death, nature, immortality and beauty. Poetry was her lover, lord and leader of her soul; he never betrayed or deserted her, and remained constant wherever her mood fancied. They held each other in a life long passionate embrace which never faltered or deviated; it was love from her first breath until her last.
