I Dwell in Possibility

love; beautiful hands of children holding green heart shapeI 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 my narrow Hands
To gather Paradise –
–Emily Dickinson

Where do you dwell?

How have you been dessert-ed?

Easter

EasterWhen the women went to dress the body of Jesus for burial, they found the stone in front of the tomb had been rolled away, and the body was gone.
