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 #91 - The Garden of the Soul

Left alone one wonders ...
Who am I?
See the beauty
That there does lie.

A beautiful flower
Left to bloom.
To grow and to blossom
There’s plenty of room.

Smell the fragrance
So sweet and pure.
Like a young debutante
So completely demure.

Lies at your core
But when you see weeds
This truth you ignore.

Hate and fear are the stains
That muddy the soul.
But cleansed clean with love
Then you’re left whole.

Grow tall
Sprout and rise
When your thoughts with love
You fertilize.

Water the soul.
Give it warmth from the sun.
Treasure the garden
For all flowers are One.


  1. Truly an inspirational piece today with a message of the power of love and the "oneness" of all. The Council of Poets seems intent on making us aware of these two themes. The flower image is both soft and delicate...yet strong and bold. And I love the ending..."Treasure the garden for all flowers are One." Very meaningful and lovely poem!

  2. Are the titles given to you or are they yours?

  3. They're mine. After typing what I've hand-written in meditation, I just write the first thing that comes to mind to summarize the feeling of the poem now that I've read it. Why? Is this one taken?

  4. Bill and Suzanne, I had a question on the title, too. As you can see by my comment, I saw the "garden" as the world and felt the message had to do with each person's soul (one flower) as part of the greater garden of the world. Interesting...
