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 #197

A triangular fin
Slices through the surface ...
Bathers run in fear
Sensing danger near.
Panic ensues.

Mothers grab their children and run.
The end of a day of such fun.
Then up through the roiling froth
Pokes a snout.
A dolphin looks about.
What’s all the fuss?

There’s no danger.
No dark and scary stranger.
You did mistake me.
Do not forsake me.
Look within ...
Beyond the fin.

Based on what you see.
There’s no need to flee.
Look more closely.
See with new eyes.
Then prepare for the greatest surprise
Of your life.


  1. What a lovely poem...dramatic, fun, and yet with a powerful message. Look beyond the surface to find the spirit within each "being." The fin image is extremely effective in allowing the reader to anticipate danger. But..."See with new eyes." What fun today...

    May we all "look more closely" as we send out love and light to all this day...

  2. This is a great poem - misperceptions, fear of ??
    Many interpretations for this poem. What are your thoughts?

  3. You're right, Jan - endless interpretations to this one. We live so much in fear, and so much of it is based on our perception of what is reality...

  4. What fun. I love the idea of being on the beach and discovering a dolphin. Looking beyond and beneath the surface is at times forgotten when our fears and judgement cloud our vision.

    We are so much more than our outward appearance. Like the "Triangular Fin", we are often mistaken for someone different than who we are.

    This poem would be good for children. It's very playful and imaginative. I love it.
