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 #153 - The Power of Words

You create with your voice.
You always have a choice
How you will affect your day
With the words you choose to say.

Will you speak with kindness?
Or speak as if with blindness?
Use your words to soothe and charm?
Or to others bring some harm?

Man has been endowed with verse
Sometimes a blessing, sometimes a curse.
But if his tongue is sweet and kind
Great healing power can he find.

Used unwisely, he can wound,
And so it’s best to stay attuned
And speak each word with thought and care
For words do linger in the air.

In this time of merry cheer,
Think of what to you is dear
And with those loving thoughts do choose
The words just right to spread this news:

That one day when you all are free
You’ll finally find eternity
And understand that all are bound
Inside the heart where love is found.


  1. What a perfect subject for a retired English teacher! "The Power of Words!" "And speak each word with thought and care." Speaking, writing, and thinking are "arts" that can be learned, but each person chooses his/her own words and the message to convey.

    Let us all be a blessing this day as we remember to speak, write, and think from "the heart where love is found."

  2. What a great poem. Words are powerful indeed.If we all spoke "each word with thought and care" our world would be a better place. We never forget the words that hurt us and the pain that burns inside our hearts.

    Loving words and actions "In this time of merry cheer" will win the hearts and smiles of those you hold most dear...
