READ OUR LATEST ‘WORDS + ART’ POEM
On November 1, The Poartry Project participated as a juried reader in the Autumn Words + Art event at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston via livestream. We read our new original poem, ‘White Space-Negative Space | Erasure | Unsaid’, in response to the group exhibit, ‘Walls Turned Sideways: Artists Confront the Justice System’ currently on display.
WHERE IN THE WORLD IS THE LATEST LITTLE FREE POETRY?
LAKE BLUFF, ILLINOIS!
As we’re setting up our new World Center Chicago as part of The World of Energy Collective, we’ve been spending a lot of time in the Windy City.
Recently, we took a scenic coastal (Lake Michigan) drive up to meet a friend at a new healthy eatery in Lake Bluff (see map below). Lake Bluff is pretty tiny, so we were overjoyed to discover that there’s actually a registered Little Free Library there! It’s right at the trailhead of a cute trail behind some houses in a residential area. Totally stealth…
We share pictures and a video below of our experience placing the poem, ‘Pine Over Cliff, into the Library. We got an extra kick out of realizing we had placed the poem next to a book with ‘pole star’ in the title, given the energetic significance of the Pole Star (Polaris) and true north.
WHAT IS POARTRY?
“Poartry” is the nurturing and sharing of the art and culture of building loving worlds through loving words (and visuals). A noble, civil and loving world that brings out the best in humanity and the kingdoms of nature depends on thoughtful, considered, perceptive, aware and appreciative expression and communication. “Poartry” cultivates the co-creative and inclusive art and culture of “impression”. “Impression” involves observation, listening, world-building, co-creation. It brings inclusion, loving understanding, grow-grow relations and a will-to-good through awakening and honing our capacity to perceive, interpret and share with spiritual insight and an awareness of the wider natural world of energies we are all a part of. “Poartry” wakes up the spiritual imagination and sparks spiritual and cultural custodianship so that the world of wonder beyond what is currently known and experienced with the physical senses can be perceived, cared for and actively brought to life for more magical living in synch with the greater world and existence we are all part of. Words and visuals literally build worlds. It is our hope and aim that the world built, shared and engaged with here is found to be beautiful, magical, boundless and meaningful, and that visitors will come to realize or deepen understanding that we are all here together on Earth as citizens of the world of energy “on mission” to help unfold the wonders of the universe and the place, purpose and plans of all lives living within it.
The Poartry Project is especially dedicated to fostering the spark of spiritual imagination and spiritual custodianship with children, who already so naturally sense and know that energy is real, through collaboration with I Love Energy, a special online space for young lives and the young at heart to play in the magical world of energy. One of our main Poartry projects for children and elementary schools is a learning and exploration experience especially geared to ages 8-12, “Poartry: Building Loving Worlds through Loving Words”. If you are interested in bringing this experience to your school or a group of families, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
