sparking + sharing the power of loving words
Wordsmiths, poets and bards have always been magicians – building and revealing worlds with words, sparking the common ground of shared experience and serving as the archivists of our collective memories and future visions. The Poartry Project keeps that magic going and expands on it with a variety of poetry offerings, opportunities and creative works.
MY APPROACH + PROCESS
As a poet, I use the senses beyond my eyes, ears and touch to perceive and bring to life the wondrous world of the unseen beyond the physical form that more and more lives are already seeking and recognizing as “the something more” they sense. This world can be found by following the trail of “golden threads of good” that weave together throughout the history of our human existence to provide a lighted path of good in the world. The Poartry Project perceives this world as what breathes life and wonder into our lives, and I have experienced profound changes over the years in how I create and share poetry and art as I have come to know this world. Mapping and sharing the territory of it is my contribution to the ongoing weaving of the golden threads of good.
My creative process and intention for each poem is unique and contemplative: With my faculties beyond the physical senses, I tune in with and perceive what I register as the substance, form, structure and essence beyond the physical form of each piece of muse artwork and its creator, space/place or experience that I am revealing and mapping through the creation of my poem. As I share this new territory of the “world beyond the form” through applying my deep training, experience and natural talent, new golden threads of good are woven in the consciousness of the reader or listener, creating opportunities to connect with and understand deeper aspects and wider dimensions of themselves and the world in new ways.
