The Birthday of Emily Dickinson...

657 I dwell in Possibility --  by Emily Dickinson

I dwell in Possibility—
A fairer House than Prose—
More numerous of Windows—
Superior—for Doors—

Of Chambers as the Cedars—
Impregnable of Eye—
And for an Everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the Sky—

Of Visitors—the fairest—
For Occupation—This—
The spreading wide of narrow Hands
To gather Paradise—

Listen to the day on NPR.

505 I would not paint -- a picture -
by Emily Dickinson
I would not paint—a picture—
I'd rather be the One
Its bright impossibility
To dwell—delicious—on—
And wonder how the fingers feel
Whose rare—celestial—stir—
Evokes so sweet a Torment—
Such sumptuous—Despair—

I would not talk, like Comets—
I'd rather be the One
Raised softly to the Ceilings—
And out, and easy on—
Through Villages of Ether—
Myself endued Balloon
By but a lip of Metal—
The pier to my Pontoon—

Nor would I be a Poet—
It's finer—own the Ear—
The License to revere.
A privilege so awful
What would the Dower be,
Had I the Art to stun myself
With Bolts of Melody!

One Prayer Answered....

If I could have just one wish granted.
If I could have just one prayer answered.
This would be that wish, this would be that prayer.
Nothing bad must happen to her

Let me take the time to tell her.
Everything that I should tell her.
How I need her more and more, how I'm glad she came along...

Nothing bad must happen to her.
In the cell of the night.
Holding on so tight...

Psalm 34:4...

Dec. 6th...

Today is the feast day of St. Nicholas. The figure of Santa Claus comes from St. Nick, who in turn comes from the real-life St. Nicholas, a fourth-century bishop from Myra, in what is now Turkey. In many parts of the world, today is the day that children get gifts — on the evening of December 5th, they might put out shoes and get small gifts like fruit, coins, or toys.

Remembering Nelson Mandala...

“It always seems impossible until it's done.”
