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 #69 - Life's Real Treasures

Yesterday I spent 10 hours sailing from Maine to New Hampshire in 6 foot seas, rocking and rolling, unable to do anything but hang on. I tried to meditate in the morning, but kept sliding about in my chair. I tried again last evening when we got to a marina, but I kept falling asleep. I felt no spirit presence at all. I tried to write a poem and got pure garbage - the words on the paper were my words completely. This morning as I sat down, I pushed all worry aside that the poems wouldn't come back. I trusted completely in the spirits, and they came. The difference from yesterday and this morning was tremendous. To me, this is all the more proof that I am not writing these poems and that the spirit world can only attune to me when I am peaceful, rested, and receptive ...

Peace – a lofty goal you set
You speak of this, and yet
Most do not enough, to make it come
For all the parts they form one sum
All must work as one
If true peace is to be won.

Stop the crying and the weeping
Wake up! You’ve all been sleeping
Look upon your neighbor as yourself
Cherish not great power and great wealth
But treasure rather the riches so fine
That come from all that is divine

And what are these treasures? You do ask
To put them to use … that’s your task
Peace and love, to serve and be kind
These are the things to keep in mind

Having compassion when others are sick
Healing the feeble, those not quite so quick
Lending a hand when others are ill
Helping each other their duties to fill

These are the riches that bring you wealth
They bring you all closer in sickness and health
These gifts given freely a man will set free
And give him a life as rich as can be
Fear nothing at all when these lessons you know
With love at your side there’s nowhere you can’t go


  1. Thank you, Council of Poets, for today's beautiful poem. "Peace and love, to serve and be kind" is my mantra for today...and I will strive to make it mine each and every day!

  2. Today, I was feeling inadequate in my volunteer job. Was I really helping? Why was I so impatient? Todays poem has helped me put everything back into perspective. I will be more kind, patient and helpful and not get caught up in the "politics". Thank you for this needed reminder.
