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.

Poem #305 - Serendipity

From Albuquerque, New Mexico

An unusual poem today, on a topic I believe we’ve seen before, but the unusual part is the pattern. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this …

Serendipity … chance encounters,
When two people meet.
Who would have thought their paths would cross
Just walking down the street?
Was it destiny that they should find
A friendship oh so deep?

So many things they work this way.
You think it’s all by chance.
Some will walk on by you
Without a passing glance,
But others catch your eye and yet
You think it’s happenstance.

But when you pull upon the string
You find there was true meaning.
For from this chance encounter,
Some truths you find you’re gleaning.
And soon before you know it
Upon this new friend you are leaning.

The world it often works like this,
With things you can’t explain.
Just the right one will be sent to you
Especially when you are in pain.
And you will know it wasn’t luck –
No doubt will there remain.

So treasure these encounters –
These serendipitous events.
They happen for a reason
Although at times they make no sense.
They’re gifts from heaven for your growth,
‘Though you may call them providence.


  1. You did write a similar poem about "Serendipity".
    This poem is very clear and strong...

    "These serendipitous events. They happen for a reason".
    When our paths cross with someone we never expect to see, we should take note of this encounter and the meaning it may hold...

    Some events we cannot control, "The world it often works like this, With things we can't explain".

    I love this poem because "serendipitous events" are often exciting....

  2. People come into our lives for a reason, and we are blessed by their presence. We learn together and grow together. "They're gifts from heaven for your growth..." A lovely poem to make us think about our relationships and how (or why) they came to be.

    On to appreciating the "chance encounters" in our lives today...

  3. Wow! I could write a book on how my wife and I met and 'God Winks' that directed us along the way to being together. Great message...
