The Empress Portal



"The pen is mightier than the sword . . ."

If you follow poetry,

you will grow up;

you will take on spiritual stature;

you will be better able to bear

the things we all have to bear,

you will have a continuing 

and permanent

rampart to the mind.


--William Rose Benet

The Empress Portal invites you to a feast of the fantastical by postmodern poet Emily Isaacson. Lean into the lush gardens of literature, the castles of the mind, medieval wanings of the internet realms, or domains and portals to the hearts of mankind.

Emily Isaacson portrays a celestial realm to which we travel on the Clay Road. On our way, we will follow various signs to guide us, hear instructions of prophecy and even see an eagle overhead from the constellation of Aquila called the Empress Clay.

You can read more about the Empress Clay, her story, and how she once helped the First Nations People in A Familiar Shore... read more.
