About

image1-103

Short version:

Daughter to an English professor.

Named after Emily Dickinson.

No pressure or anything.

Less short version and a preface:

I have been an closet poet for years, writing for myself, occasionally for others, but never for the world. Β Having collected a decent handful over time, I decided it was time to challenge myself, my insecurity, my poetic ability by gently setting it on the table of the world for consumption. I don’t have any expectations. If in time, I have created enough poetry, I would consider publishing, dedicating the book to my father, my inspiration, my mentor on all things literary and beyond. I was named after Emily Dickinson after all.

My hope for you, the visitor, is that you will linger and peruse, maybe comment here and there, let me know what affects you and how, or if not, maybe a like, or if not, maybe just silently enjoy…I am honored that you have even stopped by.

One word on my poems…please dig through them, go back to the beginning, the middle, the end and see what you find…some of my favorite pieces are tucked away at the beginning (or is that the end?). Try reading them aloud, find the rhythm, your rhythm, enjoy the feeling of the words on your tongue. I like to think poetry can encompass all five senses, and maybe even more, if properly savored.

But, more than that, I just hope that something I write touches you somehow, someway, that you know we are all connected in this crazy world where emotions collide with each other and where we collide with one another and together we are one and the same.

~ Em

  1. Omens being actualised every word you type,
    Poetic lineage, word-soul birthright clearly ripe
    As you shake the Earth with your tidal voice,
    This is clearly what you are here to do, illusory choice.

    In other words you are already a stunning poet and somewhere, in stellar runes, this is exactly how it is supposed to be.

    1. oh…okay. You know lately, a few close people around me have been leaving WordPress. It’s been hurting me and I’m feeling depressed. I don’t want you to leave Emily. I really like you and you’ve always been so incredible wonderful to me. And you’re also the best person on earth. Is everything okay? Did someone hurt you?

      1. I’m sorry people have been leaving WP. I know that people come and go for various reasons. I try not to take it personally when they do. I’ve got to figure out what I’m doing, and I don’t know what that will look like, but I’ll keep you posted. Thank you for your support, C. πŸ’œ

      2. I know you aren’t in it for money. πŸ™‚ I guess that’s just my way of saying…the world is missing out. ❀ I’ve been a fan since I first laid eyes on your art. I feel lucky to see it.
