22a. Finite stream of “nows”/
Compose the august balance/
Of our existence/
#haiku Via @emilydickinson

22b. Forever’s made up/
Of an endless stream of “nows”/
Creating our lives/
#haiku

22c. Forever’s composed/
One “now” at a time by us/
Continually/
#haiku

22d. Forever’s composed/
By humans eternally/
One “now” at a time/
#haiku

From:
Forever – is composed of Nows – (690)
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 in further Months –
And Years – exhale in Years –

Without Debate – or Pause –
Or Celebrated Days –
No different Our Years would be
From Anno Dominies –

  1. oooo I always wanted to read Emily Dickinson and I can say her writing does not disappoint. Funny how this is the theme of the day. Just gave a friend advice about living in the now and tackling problems one thing at a time.

  2. well said, leading to well lived…..

  3. Examining life/ 
    More closely teaches patience/ 
    When I stop and think/
