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 107 - Shine Your Light Forward

Never before has man
So needed the touch of grace.
The stresses of his life
Show clearly on his face.

Weep not for things of the past …

Look with eager eyes for things to come.

Your future lies before you
Spread open like a sheet.
When looking only forward
No mistakes will you repeat.

For life’s a constant journey.
One with tests and many trials.
But never do you walk alone
As you tread the many miles.

Step forward briskly; have little fear
For you are truly guided.
And things do unfold perfectly
When guidance is abided.

The light that guides you shines within
And never does it dim.
So seek it when you lose your way
In this way do begin.

The light you feel, that warmth inside
Does grow within your heart.
And from this light you cannot stray.
Of you it is a part.

So march on briskly to your future.
Shine your light ahead.
And light the way for others
Who may see ahead with dread.

For those who know the truths of life
Are beacons unto others.
And in this way they give a gift
To all their earthly brothers.

To he who walks with halting steps
Reach out and lend a hand.
And shine your light that in this way
True love they understand.


  1. Another reoccurring theme. I begin to get a Buddhist "one mind" feel from the poems. After reading now 106 of these I am beginning to think that the Beatles and John Lennon were right, "all you need is love".

  2. Beautiful words today from the Council of Poets! The light within will never dim so move forward guiding others who are fearful. "Reach out and lend a hand."

    Suzanne, you are a "beacon unto others" for certain, and we are grateful your light shines to help us all understand.

    May we all go forward in the light today...

  3. What a lovely poem. The way it begins is quite powerful with the description of how stress can be seen on someones face.

    If we can be a "guiding light" for one person or many we can begin to spread warmth and love..
