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 #341 - Those Little Annoyances

From Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Disturbances …
Things which take you from your goal.
These small and big annoyances,
They play a valued role.

For how you handle what impedes
Those things for which you’re yearning
As you continue on your path
Is all part of what you’re learning.

Do you grumble and get short
With that which does annoy?
Or do you see it as a bump
Along the road to joy?

Once again, we tell you
All is nothing but perception.
Do you see things as annoyance
Or just part of God’s perfection?

Everything is neutral
Until you color it with thought.
If you see something as negative
Then into negativity you’re brought.

While it’s fine to maintain reason
And know that big things can upset you,
The small disturbances of life
Are the ones that should not “get you.”

Try to walk the even path
With quite tempered a reaction
And you will find you pass your days
With much greater satisfaction.


  1. Certainly an apt poem for me today with a few "bumps along the road." :) "Everything is neutral until you color it with thought." Thank you, Council of Poets, for this lovely reminder.

    On to walking an "even" path today with joy and gratitude...

  2. Words of wisdom to remember and live by.

    We can become caught up in our emotions and the little dramas that we face each day but "The small disturbances of life Are the ones that should not "get you".

    I like this poem because it bring things back into perspective and allows you to think about whats really important...
