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 #261 - Time Well Spent

(Note from Suzanne - the poems may be posted at odd hours for the next 5 days, but they'll eventually be posted each day!)

Begin at the beginning
Where all good projects start.
How you start your day out
Will reveal if you are smart …

Do you rush about like mad
Scurrying like a rabbit?
If so, just stop and think a bit –
Is this purely out of habit?

Think how much calmer you would be
If you took some extra time
To sit in silence with your soul
And celebrate The Divine.

“Oh, no! But I can’t add,” you think,
“Another minute to my day!”
This shows you do not realize
How beneficial is the time you pray.

The time you spend in silence
Lingers with you as you go.
Long after you do meditate
You carry forth an inner glow.

So rise a tad bit earlier
Even though this may seem hard,
And soon you’ll feel the benefits
And look on this time with high regard.


  1. How sweet...the silence of early morn,,,

  2. The spirit world this morning is encouraging us to wisely spend time in meditation and prayer before beginning the challenges of each new day. After seeking guidance within, we are more able to cope with life's highs and lows...and to send love into our world. Thank you, Suzanne, and thank you, Council of Poets, for these lovely inspirational poems which help in our meditations.

    I love the alliteration in the line, "To sit in silence with your soul..."

    On to enjoying the beauty of today...

  3. Lovely poem...

    We need to retreat and sit silence to find peace within our hearts...
