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 #103 - Light

Today all I can say is, "Wow" ...

Bitter tastes the root
For it never sees the light.
And some plants know when night has come
For they curl themselves up tight.

Why this passion for the sun?
Why be pulled toward its heat?
For light’s the source of all that is.
This lesson we repeat.

At your core you’re consciousness.
Just “being” at its essence.
The physical it has no power.
Just simple obeisance.

When science joins the spiritual
And all seekers work as one,
Then finally you will find the truth
The true quest will have begun.

Til now the work has led to strife
To prove who’s wrong or right.
But when great minds do work as one
You’ll finally see the light.

For light’s the key to all you see,
The source of all that lives.
It springs from God’s pure consciousness
His light to you He gives.

Your wise men they have known this truth
They’ve spread it through the ages.
That God is love and love is light
In this they were true sages.

So seek the light and spread the love
And in this peace you’ll find.
For already you do know these truths
These in your heart you’ll find.


  1. "God is love and love is light." I, too, can only say "Wow, Suzanne." We know these truths, but they are more powerfully stated through the lovely flow of the poetry. Thank you, Council of Poets!

    The message of "oneness" comes through strongly with the need for scientists and spiritual seekers to work together. The directive is to "seek the light and spread the love" to find peace.

    The beginning stanza is extremely effective with the plant analogy. It relates to the human need for light so perfectly. Just this morning at 3:00 AM, I was yearning for the break of day...

    What a special "message of hope" today!

  2. Yes, Wow!
    I rarely see the word obeisance used. I love the way this poem begins, "bitter tastes the root for it never sees the light". Like branches on a tree we reach for the light from within and without. The light is our faith found in our hearts.Without light we would be lost and we would not grow. We would not find peace of mind...
