“Poartry” is the nurturing and sharing of the art and culture of building loving worlds through loving words (and visuals), and this is the mission of The Poartry Project.
The Poartry Project was created by a poet, writer, visual artist, “cartographer of the unseen” and agent of beauty and perception to light a path of good in the world by revealing the unseen beyond the seen through the power of poetry and art created with senses beyond the physical.
Poartry uses poetry and visual art to share the experience of the unseen, the reality already proven by science that everything is energy, and the “golden threads” of universal timeless truths underlying and shaping our physical world and experiences in new ways. We do this to expand perception, interpretation and context beyond the physical – and even emotional and mental – for deeper and more meaningfully informed insight, connection and culture of caring in our lives and world.
Two of the primary ways we are doing this is through the bi-monthly "Voicing Art" Community Poetry Reading Series of original poems and prose directly inspired by the art exhibits at Flynndog Gallery in Burlington, Vermont's South End Station and through Free Little Poetry, a community poetry initiative of placing handwritten poems by The Poartry Project in hand-built little community libraries throughout the country, including Hinesburg, Vermont; Nantucket, Massachusetts; Chicago, Illinois; Lake Bluff, Illinois; Sheboygan, Wisconsin and Montgomery, Alabama (so far).
