As if the Sea should part

Emily Dickinson

 Next Poem          


As if the Sea should part
And show a further Sea—
And that—a further—and the Three
But a presumption be—

Of Periods of Seas—
Unvisited of Shores—
Themselves the Verge of Seas to be—
Eternity—is Those—

    Wow, this poem really got me thinking! The imagery is so vivid it’s like I can actually see those infinite seas. The idea of eternity captured in such simple yet profound words is just incredible. Anyone else think this poem brings out a sense of unending exploration? What are your thoughts - did you guys find it as mind-blowing as I did?
