The Think Tank Thursday #99 Possibility...

I received a card this week, it said "dwell in possibility..."   I thought this would make a great prompt.
The word "Home" was our #84 prompt. The word possibility conjures up what we hope for. I love the idea of dwelling in hope.  I want you to pen a poem about possibility, what would you like to dwell there?

"I dwell in possibility."~Emily Dickinson



“All the possibilities of your human destiny are asleep in your soul. You are here to realize and honor these possibilities. When love comes in to your life, unrecognized dimensions of your destiny awaken and blossom and grow. Possibility is the secret heart of time.”
John O'Donohue,



“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.”
Gloria Steinem

  4. Thank you! I struggled getting this one to breath... I thought it a great idea, but struggled finding photos to express what I really wanted to propose. I know our words will go there...
    (My house is full of teens...the noise level is through the roof). My daughter had her last exam, yesterday and school for her and many friends is over. I am so behind...I will be trying to read what I missed last week and this one!
    I hope this prompt really pushes all of us and allows us to explore our true thoughts, hopes and dreams~
