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 #136 - Balance

In this world of stress and strife
You need to take the time
To step outside the battles
And soak up the sublime.

There’s far too little happiness
And far too much disdain.
You need to seek out love and joy
And set aside the pain.

Find beauty in the tiny things.
Seek laughter when you can.
There’s time for work and time for play.
Put balance in your plan.

Yes, kind advice we offer you.
It’s nothing you don’t know.
But far too many fail to stop
And seek the inner glow.


  1. As they say - "Short but sweet" - a nice reminder to us all to "stop and smell the roses". Today I will watch the butterflies dance on the flowers and the geckos scurry across my lanai.

  2. What a lovely poem.

    Finding "balance" in our lives can be a daily task we all seek to maintain. While seeking beauty in the stillness of life and the small treasures that bring love into our lives we can reach the warm essence of our being...

  3. "Find beauty in the tiny things..." Profound, powerful, yet simply stated, this is an extremely important message for all of us. I, too, will be more aware of the beauty and love that surrounds me today. Thank you, Council of Poets, for this gentle reminder.

    On to seeking the "inner glow"...
