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 #145 - The Little Things

See the goodness in all things.
Hear the bird, the song it sings.
Smell the flower, touch the rose.
Pat a puppy on its nose.

All are ways to feel God’s love.
Gifts to you from up above.
The little moments when you stop.
And cherish all the gifts you’ve got.

It’s not the big things you acquire.
Of these things you will soon tire.
But the moments, quickly gone
That leave a mark and then move on.

He who stops to look and listen
Will see the treasures when they glisten.
He’ll feel a part of all that’s great
And know the joy that does await.

It’s hinted at in what you see—
These glimpses of divinity.
A taste of what is yet to come
When you will find that all is one.


  1. What a lovely and uplifting poem today from the Council of Poets! Beautiful examples of magical and meaningful moments that "leave a mark and then move on." My favorite lines, however, are the very last two, "A taste of what is yet to come when you will find that all is one." The message of oneness comes through again.

    May we all experience "seeing the goodness in all things" today...

  2. What a cute poem. Love the line "pat a puppy on it's nose." It brings back memories of my childhood when one Christmas day my father gave us a baby Dachsund as a Christmas gift. He was in a beautiful box with a big red bow on top.

    The small things in life often give us the most joy and happiness. If we just take time to listen to the birds, catch the beauty of a sunset or take time to play with our pets, we will find more peace in living...
