the endless ocean


I have a memory
of a distant future -
I look up at the sky and see
an unending vastness 
mirrored.

I imagine that if you were to set your eyes on the endless ocean, there could be two possible reactions. You would either be terrified or you would feel a great calm. No matter what your reaction, you would understand what you were looking at. To conceive of its boundaries would be a futile attempt. And your conception of time and relative size would crumble. You would see yourself in these limitless depths and recognise your place in it all. It would seem like a meaningless accident or a grand miracle. Or both.
