The combination of uplifting poetry and beautiful art fills me with joy.
I’m very particular about my art and my poetry. I give them but a split second to capture my heart.
The poetry must be imaginative, penetrating, capturing an irresistible message of life. The art must be aesthetically gorgeous, delightful.
Both must be uplifting. Both need to move me emotionally.
Each week I receive an email containing a poem by Louis Swartz, illustrated by Diane Woods. Artistic geniuses.
They send these illustrated poems so we can take one minute in our busy week to experience some aesthetic pleasure. Just because. The best reason ever.
Every week, no matter how I’m feeling, when the weekly poem arrives, I find myself shooting up the emotional ladder to a moment of pure joy.
I thought you might also enjoy a minute of aesthetic pleasure a week.

There’s no hidden agenda, only a moment of outrageously good poetry and art each week. They never share your info with anyone. These 2 artists just want to uplift humanity.
Here are some other examples of what they’ve sent out:
May your life be full of aesthetic pleasure!
