About the Poetry

All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.

Poem #64 - What Matters Most

As always, I received the words to this poem non-stop in just minutes ...

Pay attention to what matters
Before all you value ends in tatters
Hear our voices
You all make choices
As the wind blows, the leaves it scatters

Blessed are ye
With a family
To have and to hold
To live with and grow old
The gift of loving company

But in your striving to do more
You sometimes close an open door
You fail to give the proper attention
The love that matters you fail to mention
And those denied are left keeping score

Your priorities must you organize
What matters most must you realize
Before what’s most valuable to you is lost
The love you’ve hidden you must defrost
For those you love are life’s greatest prize

Yes, a job is important, this is true
In your world the bills come due
But never ever take your sight
From those who love you day and night
Those who by love are linked to you

“Family first” is a popular phrase
See it clearly through the haze
For in the thirst to get ahead
Too many leave their love for dead
So set are the workers in their ways

Money and power your life it rules
In your toolbox, they are the tools
But what’s truly important never forget
Fill your future not with regret
Those you love are life’s greatest jewels


  1. A gentle reminder from the Spirit World... "Family first" is an important motto. I love the ending phrase, "Those you love are life's greatest jewels." I refuse to live in regret, and I choose to live in love! My new mantra for today! :)

  2. Structurally the soundest poem with an AABBA CCDDC EEFFE...Rhyme with consistent meter. The message is clear and one that has haunted me for some years, Do you work to live or Live to work. In my opinion this poem is from a single voice
