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 #172 - On Prayer

Stormy nights … thunder claps.
Children huddle in their beds.
Mommies and daddies sit at their side
Stroking their round, silky heads.

Comfort comes in many forms…
A tender caress, a whispered voice.
Whether or not you find relief,
This is a personal choice.

So many people feel they’re alone
Silent tears they fall.
Help is always as close as a phone.
If only you’d make that one call.

“Oh, God, I need you,”
‘Tis all you need say.
Sit in the silence
And to your Source pray.

Then bask in the knowledge
That love does surround you.
When out goes your prayer
Spirit comes all around you.

It’s there every moment
But most times you don’t feel it.
But it is your prayers
That help to reveal it.

So cry not in anguish.
There’s no need for fright.
You weep not alone
In the still of the night.

Just like the child
God does stroke your soft cheek.
He’s there all the time
When you’re strong and when weak.

But mainly at moments
When your strength it is low
To you He gives courage.
This great comfort, please know.


  1. A message of solace for all...and certainly a "contending poem" for the booklet for the hospital waiting rooms. Call upon Spirit for courage and comfort, and "cry not in anguish" alone. The images in the first stanza set a beautiful stage for the rest of the poem.

    May we all "bask in the knowledge that love does surround us" today...

  2. What a great title. I immediately think of Childrens Hospital and your book of poems that you plan to publish for several hopsitals.

    This poem is nice for children or adults and is very comforting."Comfort comes in many forms.."
    If we take time to pray and sit in silence we can grow strong and bright again feeling the love that abounds us...
