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 #169

An unusual free-flowing style today, as if a new poet was feeling the way...

Seeds of wisdom
Blowing in the wind
Like dandelion feathers.
Catch them in the breeze
If you please.
Hold them in your palm.
Feel the overwhelming calm.
That flows through every fiber…

Such a delight
It is to write
Creating pictures with words …

Footprints in the sand…
Of passersby.
Do you ever wonder why
Your paths did cross?

Many walk the same beach
Yet remain just out of reach.
Separated by mere minutes.

All lives are intertwined.
The link you’ll one day find.
Follow the footsteps…
Leading down the beach
What’s ahead still out of reach
But yours for the taking.

Beware of what you crave
The future’s for the brave.
When you step out on your own.
But following the trail
Smooth waters will you sail
With your conscience as your guide.


  1. I like this poem and the images of the beach which to me represents freedom, motion and light. It's interesting the way this poem begins with the seeds and the dandelion. Dandelions are so beautiful especially when they turn white and the seeds get carried off by the wind. I have learned that dandelions are a symbol and sign for divination and spirit. Perhaps there is a new poet...

  2. I love free verse "painting pictures with words." Whoever you are writing today, I say, "thank you." "Blowing in the wind" brings to mind Bob Dylan, of course. I love the opening verse. It reminds me of my childhood in Minnesota. I would pick the dandelion that had gone to seed, make a wish, and blow. Precious memories...

    We are asked today to consider why certain people are in our lives, and to "follow the footsteps" to the future. But we are cautioned once more by the words, "Beware of what you crave, the future's for the brave." However, the final lines bring reassurance once again with, "Smooth waters will you sail with your conscience as your guide."

    May I listen to the voice within as I follow the trail today...
