Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (1830-1886) was an American poet. Little known during her life, she would become one of America’s greatest and most original poets of all time.
According to the Poetry Foundation, Dickinson's work often saw "the inescapable limitations of their societies as well as their imagined and imaginable escapes. To make the abstract tangible, to define meaning without confining it, to inhabit a house that never became a prison, Dickinson created in her writing a distinctively elliptical language for expressing what was possible but not yet realized."

The heart needs poetry much like the Earth needs rain. It is the music, the harmony, and the bearer of truth throughout our life’s journey. ~ Jack Kornfield
