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 #286 - Simple Pleasures

Simple pleasures make you smile.
It takes not a lengthy while.
Simply gaze upon a child’s face
Or give to a baby an embrace.

Instantly you feel connection -
A sudden inner recollection
That this is why you’ve come to earth,
Why to you was given birth …

To feel within your heart and soul
The love of Life – this is your role.

If through your days you simply walk
And feel not love, but merely talk
Of mundane things that lack emotion
Then you’ll not understand devotion.

Devotion comes when you awaken
And like a pill with water taken
Do digest why you are here.
Then suddenly it all comes clear:

You’re here to be that which you are –
A spark if God, a shining star.
His love to feel and radiate –
This is the task put on your plate.

Do your job and do it well
And you will exit from the Hell –
The Hell of knowing not the treasure
Of the love inside that’s beyond measure.


  1. "Simple Pleasures" are lifes treasures woven together to awaken our senses...

  2. "To feel within your heart and soul the love of Life - this is your role." Joy and passion permeate today's poem. We are urged to recognize the Divine within and "awaken" to who we really are. Once we feel the love, we will "radiate" the love to our world.

    On to enjoying the "simple pleasures" today...
