Deborah Howell’s No-Stress Quote of the Day

So, longtime WAVE listener Ernest Sanchez emailed me at and asked if he could submit a poem instead of a quote.  Since the only rule for this blog is, “There are no rules”, I said “Sure!”

This is the poem Ernest wanted to share.  May it brighten your day.  Thanks, Ernest!

And everyone else…feel free to submit a quote or a short poem.  I’d love to hear what moves you and what motivates you.

“Heaven” has different Signs—to me

Emily Dickinson

“Heaven” has different Signs—to me—
Sometimes, I think that Noon
Is but a symbol of the Place—
And when again, at Dawn,

Upon the Ignorance steals—

The Triumph of the Birds
When they together Victory make—
Some Carnivals of Clouds—

The Rapture of a finished Day—
Returning to the West—
All these—remind us of the place
That Men call “paradise”—

Itself be fairer—we suppose—
But how Ourself, shall be
Adorned, for a Superior Grace—
Not yet, our eyes can see—
