Poetry feeds the heart of The On Being Project. It accompanies us in times of crisis, when official words fail us and we lose sight of how to find our way back to one another; how to hear each other’s voices.
Now we’re offering pocket-sized poetry that can accompany you as the background wallpaper for your phone. We commissioned artist Katie Skau to create original papercut illustrations to pair with some of our favorite poems by Mary Oliver, Wendell Berry, Marilyn Nelson, and Osip Mandelstam.
To download them for free, just fill out the short form below. We’d be so grateful if you could share a few personal details so we can learn more about how to better serve you and our community.
