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 #186 - On Prayer

Miracles happen every day
When you quietly sit and pray.
Oh, how powerful is the word
Which so often goes unheard.

We hear you when you speak to God.
No request can be too odd.
But know we answer as we can
Although not always by your plan.

For people think they know what’s best.
Their prayers are sometimes like a test.
And when things happen as they should,
It is not always seen as good.

Pray for safety, pray for health,
But save the prayers that ask for wealth.
Know that you will get your due,
When your best efforts do accrue.

Be careful not to always ask,
But sit in the power and just bask
In the warmth which always flows
From the One who all answers knows.

Give gratitude for what you’ve got.
Don’t focus on that which you have not.
Just trust and pause for some reflection
Upon the face of sheer perfection.


  1. Powerful words today for me as I close on the sale of our home this morning. "But save the prayers that ask for wealth." "Give gratitude for what you've got." My heart is filled with gratitude. Thank you, Council of Poets, for your continuing words of wisdom.

    On to "basking in the warmth which always flows from the One who all answers knows..."

  2. This is a favorite too.I like the line "Give gratitude for what you've got. Don't focus on that which you have not."

    It's easy to wish for more by overlooking what we already have. We live in a world where abundance is such a priority and that's when we lose sight of whats important in life. When we follow our intuition and the light of our heart, this becomes our treasure and power..
