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 #234 - What Really Matters

Diamonds are a dime a dozen -
Merely shiny rocks.
Why place so great a value
On a ring inside a box?

But place instead your focus
On what that ring stands for –
A symbol of the pledge to wed
And love forever more.

It’s good to have such symbols …
Reminders for the heart.
For nothing’s valued quite as much
As the love of which you’re part.

So wear your rings and hold them up
To sparkle in the sun …
Symbols of the greatest joy
When two shall join as one.

But know that all are joined right now
With or without a ring,
For all are One in Spirit
Separated by no-thing.


  1. I see today's poem as a lovely explanation of the "oneness" theme. The love between two people is an exceptionally beautiful experience. But there is more...see the love connection in all relationships. "For all are One in Spirit separated by no-thing." We each have the spark of the divine within and are thus a part of all others through Spirit. We don't need "rings" or material items to experience this bond; it is a truth that we simply learn and value...a gift.

    May we grow in love this day as we experience our "oneness" with all others...

  2. Nice poem and perfect for that wedding day.

    I like the line "So wear your rings to hold them up to sparkle in the sun".

    Diamonds certainly are a "girls best friend" as they shimmer in the light but nothing bonds two people more than pure love and grace...
