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 #112 - On Music

Those who play with music notes
Such pleasure they do bring.
When with their voice or instruments
The heaven’s sounds they sing.

For music is a gift from God
It brightens up the soul.
One broken can, with music’s help,
Once again feel whole.

“Music soothes the savage beast”
Is something you do say.
For in the soothing notes and tones
The tension slips away.

It’s all about harmonics
And resonating tones
That resonate in harmony
Within your flesh and bones.

Experiments have shown it true
That music harsh and mean
Will leave its mark upon each cell
In ways that can be seen.

But play the tones of Mozart
Or a simple lullaby
And you can see the cells relax
With little time gone by.

Thus music is a simple tool
From God it is a gift
To bring you back to harmony
If ‘ere you need a lift.

It’s “music of the Gods” you say
And this is very true
For with the sweetest tones on earth
Is how God speaks to you.


  1. I am not a fan of organized religion and traditional church services, but one of the highlights of my worship experiences down through the years has been the music. Have you ever noticed that when The Lord's Prayer is sung, it is far more powerful, emotional, and meaningful than when recited? Yes, God speaks to us through music to help restore harmony. Truly a magnificent message today.

    Thank you, Suzanne, and thank you, Council of Poets, for this reminder.

    I'll be "humming" along today for sure...

  2. What an amazing poem.There is no end to how music can speak to us. I love the words "one broken can, with music's help,once again feel whole". Even when our hearts are broken a song or melodie can lift our spirits and heal us deep within." For with the sweetest tones on earth is how God speaks to you."

    This is a favorite...

  3. Today's poem was of a higher order. Fully packaged with only (IMO) poetic challenge -- double use of resonate(ing) in one stanza.

    I wonder what they think of the Princeton String Quartet (not musicians but physicists). Harmonics of a different order.

    Lois, I too have noticed that.
