Inspirational Poems

This page is a collection of Inspirational Poems and Inspiring Poets.  Poems can be a compelling way to share insight.  They bypass the analytical mind and go directly to the heart.  Sometimes when you can't figure things out, it's better to stop thinking and allow your emotion and intuition to do the work for you.  Poems can stir that part of your being and surprise you with wisdom, inspiration, and a sense of connection.

Bookmark this page and check back often as I update it on a regular basis, so be sure to check back soon.

If you have an inspiring poem that you'd like to share please E-mail me. I'm happy to read it and if appropriate add it to the page.

Stop this day and night with me
and you shall possess the origin of all poems.

-Walt Whitman
