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 #288 - Taking Care of #1

Surviving on this planet
Takes a great deal of strength,
For you face a lot of challenges
Which stretch you your full length.

Your mind is stressed
Your body, too
From all these those things
You feel you must do.

But recognize, please
The need for rest.
You need not always
Your body so test.

Put down your pen.
Turn off the TV.
Then walk in nature
Or simply “be.”

You cannot always
Walk around “on.”
Thinking if you don’t act now
The moment is gone.

There will always
Be more to do.
So first take time
To take care of YOU.


  1. When life becomes too busy, stop and remember to take time to refresh body, mind, and spirit. The spirit world reminds us this morning to send love to ourselves and to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. "There will always be more to do. So first take time to take care of YOU."

    On to enjoying the beauty of today and finding peace within...

  2. What a lovely poem and so simply stated that we should stop what we are doing more often to listen to the silence and "simply be"...

    "Surviving on this planet takes a great deal of strength" is such an honest statement.
