Blue to Blue

Wonderful sunrise in front of the flat this morning - and it just has to be Emily Dickinson's famous meditation on consciousness, to accompany the photograph:

The Brain is wider than the Sky

The Brain—is wider than the Sky—
For—put them side by side—
The one the other will contain
With ease—and You—beside—

The Brain is deeper than the sea—
For—hold them—Blue to Blue—
The one the other will absorb—
As Sponges—Buckets—do—

The Brain is just the weight of God—
For—Heft them—Pound for Pound—
And they will differ—if they do—
As Syllable from Sound—


Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886)
