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 #296 - Seize the Day

From The Villages, Florida, as we prepare to leave ...

Seize the day.
How does one do this?
Grabbing at each moment
To have a taste of bliss.

Carpe diem –
It’s a phrase that is quite old.
But much truth lies there within it…
If the truth be truly told.

How do you seize a moment?
How do you hold it in your hand?
You stop the frantic motion
And freeze right where you stand.

“I’m here,” you say.
“I exist,” you do announce.
“And from this very moment
All false beliefs I do renounce.”

“I seize this day as mine,
A day to see things as they are –
Not the way I have been told
By those who saw things from afar.”

“Instead, I will be guided
By One who sees truly without eyes –
By the one true guiding force
That lights up all the skies.”

“And when I lose my way
On this Force I will now call.
For with God to light the way,
There’s no way that I can fall.”

It takes a dedication
From a moment of decision
To let God direct your life –
To your old habits make revision.

Seize the day – seize every moment
To with God your soul unite,
And leave behind the darkness
As He leads you to the light.


  1. Seize the day...each day.
    Travel safely.
    And may all your dreams come true.

    Lots of love, as you go on your way.

  2. Live each day with vitality. Enjoy the moment and the experience, always asking for guidance from Spirit within. Decide to move forward into the light and "awaken." "And leave behind the darkness as He leads you to the light."

    On to living in the light each day as we learn and love along the way...

    As always, Suzanne, I am with you "in spirit." Enjoy!

  3. Suzanne,I will be sailing with you in spirit and checking in as I always do to read your beautiful poems..

    "How do you seize the moment and hold it in your hand"?

    This line makes me think of a raindrop or dewdrop as it freezes with the cold...

    Seize each moment or day with "Gods" light and stillness...
