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 #150 - In the Details

Sit down on your haunches.
Contemplate the grass.
Pick up a single blade,
And let it through your fingers pass.

Feel the tiny ridges
That are so hard to detect.
And then upon this feeling
Take a moment to reflect.

These tiny details pass before you
In oh so many ways,
But you all fail to see them
As your lives pass in a haze.

Make a pause to look.
Stop and spend the time.
And you will finally realize
The meaning of “divine.”

Like these words – so simple,
Yet a message that is clear:
The little things that go unseen
Are the ones you should hold dear.


  1. Oh yes...a message telling us to be more aware of the "divine" in life. "The little things that go unseen are the ones you should hold dear." Using the simple blade of grass to show us the way, The Council of Poets sends a beautiful, yet powerful, reminder.

    May I always notice the "divine" in life as I walk my path in this existence and beyond...

  2. Your poems contain so many interesting words like "haunches." My vocabulary is growing!

    I love the description of a "single blade of grass" and allowing your fingers along the surface to feel it's depth and beauty. When we pause throughout the day to notice the beauty that surrounds us, we learn to appreciate the smaller things in life that often give us most peace and pleasure.If we spend our lives rushing around all the time we miss out on the details that make life so dear and precious.

    Life is not just about making money, it's about taking time to "smell the roses"...
