Artist's Description

Emily Dickinson’s poetry is brief yet compacted with meaning. Her well-chosen words always deliver the punch she intended. This little poem is one of my favorites because it is a reminder of the power of words, that they live on in the people to whom we address them, long after they’ve left our mouths. I thought this photo of a little vine wrapping itself around a barbed wire fence went well with Dickinson’s words. The barbs symbolize sharp, hurtful words that damage while the tender vine represents gentle but strong, life-giving words that build up, heal, and encourage.
