A certain slant of light...

"There's a certain Slant of light,
Winter Afternoons --
That oppresses, like the Heft
Of Cathedral Tunes --

Heavenly Hurt, it gives us --
We can find no scar,
But internal difference,
Where the Meanings, are --

None may teach it -- Any --
'Tis the Seal Despair --
An imperial affliction
Sent us of the Air --

When it comes, the Landscape listens --
Shadows -- hold their breath --
When it goes, 'tis like the Distance
On the look of Death --"

-Emily Dickinson
Friday 2 a.m. resolution:
I will try very hard to take control of this thing.  This weekend.  I refuse to spend another week like this.
Going to sleep now....have to get up at 6 a.m.
Will also try to get my articulateness back.  If ever I was.


  1. (((Michelle))) Please remember I am here if you need me, please?  I am here day and talk or just listen.:o)
    Hang in there...
    Hugs, Julie

  2. You will get through this.

  3. Hi Michelle,

    I am sorry that you are still having hard times and I want you to be happy.  Please talk when you need to.  I am your older sister and I have big shoulders if you need them.


  4. I wish I could make it all better, I really do.  I am thinking about you.  You will manage.  Nice poetry.
