Naples, FL – It’s been said, "True poets don't write their thoughts with a pen. They release the ink that flows from within their hearts." At its very best, poetry can activate the simple ideas we know in our hearts to be true. If a poet can articulate those ideas, their words can melt the hardest of hearts.

Ruth Kuttler is the author of the wildly popular Visions in Verse, an illustrated collection of poems, quotes, inspirational writings and stories inviting readers to consider new possibilities and embark on a journey of self-discovery. Published in 2005, Visions in Verse’s inspirational messages encourage readers to change their life by listening to their heart.

“Writing poetry empowered me to let go of fear and to follow my dreams,” says Kuttler. “Visions in Verse gives people permission to dream and dare to live those dreams. If you live life with passion you will attract opportunities."

Kuttler’s inspiration for Visions in Verse was borne out of a career crisis. A former nurse practitioner, her passion for poetry ultimately lead to a total life transformation and career as an artist and motivational speaker.

“I was looking for who I really was and what I was put on earth to do,” recalls Kuttler. “I started to write and something truly amazing happened: all these ideas poured out of me onto the paper. It empowered me to let go of what wasn’t working in my life and go for what was.”

Recently, Kuttler decided to illustrate some of her more popular poems and make them available as artwork. Fans of Kuttler’s poetry can purchase these framed illustrated poems through her website http://www.visionsinverse.com.

“This comes from my heart,” says Kuttler. “It’s something inside me but it’s all about helping someone else.”
