  • From the Heart: A Gift of Poetry

    Poetry can put into words our very deepest and most intangible emotions. The genius of our great poets is the ability to use words to express the seemingly incommunicable – rhythm, sound, and observation roll into a resonant moment where we share our delicate and beautiful humanity. In this time of separation from our loved ones, we must find a novel and wonderfully immediate way to reach out to our human family.

    I would like to deliver your choice of poem (up to 8 minutes in length) to someone you love – either in a downloadable audio or video file or live in- person. You can suggest a poem that expresses your message, or we can work on finding the perfect one together. I will reach out to you upon notification of your order to finalize details. Let me deliver your feelings of gratitude, joy, missing your pal, or devastating passion to that person you so long to hug again!

    For Audio or Video: Completion time is two weeks from determination of the perfect piece of poetry

    For the live PoetryGram: I will go to any location in the Washington, D.C. area to deliver your gift of poetry. Date and time to be agreed upon by myself and the purchaser, and a minimum of one week is required between order and performance. The delivery is intended to take place outdoors. At the current time, Lise will not be entering any buildings.
