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 #113 - Changes

Beautiful Fall colors
Burst upon the scene.
Leaves that hang upon the trees
Turn orange from the green.

The changes are in nature
That all who pass can see.
The same outer changes
They happen thus to thee.

What is aging?
But the changes on your face.
Tiny lines and creases
Your smooth skin they do replace.

But deep down inside you
Beyond the outer skin
There lies a timeless beauty--
It’s the soul that lies within.

This part of you it ages not.
Forever does it glow.
And when you pass beyond this earth
This part of you does go.

So worry not as you do see
The changes in the glass.
For these are not the lasting part
These changes they will pass.

The part of you that matters
Is the part that you can’t see.
It stays with you forever –
Into eternity.


  1. This poem and poem 111 have been truly comforting to me and Bob. His mom passed away yesterday after I had read poem 111 and today's poem is a beautiful reminder that she is no longer suffering she is beautiful again with God. We will miss her but glad that she is no longer in pain. Thank you so much

  2. A reminder for all of us to look beyond physical aging to the beauty of the soul. "Worry not as you do see the changes in the glass." The soul, the essence of who we really are, lives on forever..."Into eternity."

    May we all recognize the "timeless beauty" of the soul within ourselves and others as we go about living our lives this day...

  3. Simply beautiful the way this poem ties into fall and all it's glory. We are definately more than flesh and bones. Our beauty lies beyond our skin. We all hold a candle, a light deep inside which never dissapears even after we die. "There lies a timeless beauty,it's the soul that lies within." When we let go of our body we become a flickering light that transcends time and sight...

  4. For me age has always been quantified grace.

    A question, Council of Poets--what you call the voices OR what is defined for you?

  5. "Council of Poets" is what I heard one day when I asked, "Who are you?"
