Emily Dickinson Poem

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 my narrow Hands
To gather Paradise--

All week the words 'dwell in possibility' have been running through my mind.  I love this poem by Emily Dickinson.

Here's a hand embroidered item from Laurie Abela, who owns an Etsy shop called SOUL SEEDS.  In her own words "Along the way, I've noticed little reminders that have helped light my way. It occurred to me that others may find them helpful too, so I decided to embroider them on previously loved fabrics, to leave the lightest footprint."
