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 #239 - Chance Encounters

Chance encounters
When two people meet…
You so often think
It is a random feat.

But what you think is chance
Is no great mystery.
There’s purpose in the meeting.
All things are meant to be.

Look closely – pay attention.
Where’s the meaning in the act?
You can learn and grow each moment
By the way you do react.

Do you respond with kindness,
Or make no sound at all?
Does the chance to love just pass you by
Even though you it does call?

See purpose in each moment.
Miss not each chance to grow.
Ask yourself, “What can I do
My spirit more to know?”

For in your interactions
When dealing from the heart,
You’re awakening inside of you
Your true, essential part.

Waste not these chance encounters.
See them as a special gift.
Use them as a chance to love,
And thus your soul to lift.


  1. "See purpose in each moment. Miss not each chance to grow." The world of spirit reminds us this morning that each "chance encounter" is an opportunity for love and growth. We must ask ourselves, "What's the meaning in this act?"

    May our interactions with others today reflect the love within...

  2. This is a favorite...

    "Chance encounters" can be magical and quite significant. It's an opportunity to grow and to open our hearts to those who cross our path...
