Despite an occasional creative surge of my own, I am usually more inspired to showcase the talents of others. After our visit ends, I invite you to explore the numerous sites within the Poets Collective domain as it continues to fill with poetry we hope you’ll find worthy of time and attention. Thanks. -Mary

And even if you only read one poem …


May You Be Blessed


An a cappella note in harmony
with universal consciousness can raise
its level of vibration. Through the haze
of negatives that strike a minor key,
two voices merging in a melody
ring crystalline. And in a thousand days
a billion blessings, amplified with praise,
crescendo in a world-wide symphony.

It’s not a pipe dream, pilgrim, it’s a plan.
A single willing heart can help create
a more inviting atmosphere on earth.
Our planet begs for healing, and we can
be instruments of love that resonate
in celebrating every person’s worth.

– Mary Boren
