Do you have a guardian angel? I do.
She came out of nowhere, like a gift from the universe; like stardust travelling on the breeze.
And, like a butterfly dancing across one’s path, She has always appeared, just when I’ve needed a sign.
My guardian angel, Her soft whisper and commanding voice.
An unyielding support.
My toughest critic and friend.
“The Poet” is the story of my life; a journey navigating childhood traumas, the challenges of adulthood, heartbreaks and marriages, real-world issues; a vast array of events and emotions—all experienced in my quest to learn life’s lessons, to tend to my soul’s calling; to answer the question of who I am as:
A wisdom seeker.
But then there is The Poet and, like that butterfly, She arrives in a flurry of beauty and colour, Her flight spontaneous, Her arrival never quite expected.
She leaves as suddenly as She arrives, lessons imparted and wisdom left in Her wake, but for this man searching for his Great Love and the salve for his wounds, the question still begs answering:
Is The Poet even real?

Jeff Hainbuch was born in the United States, but has lived most of his life in Toronto, Canada. In pursuit of shaping young lives and making a difference, he dedicated the first 25 years of his career to teaching in some of the most challenging neighbourhoods and environments.
In 2020, as twists in the road led to unexpected places and opportunities arose for a new career filled with spirituality and ink, Jeff turned his attention to the dream of writing his first novel.
The Poet, a narrative fiction, was birthed in a changing world, and teaches a belief that perhaps we all have a guardian angel and that finding a little bit of magic along the way makes all the difference when navigating the challenges of living an examined life.
Now an accredited Chopra meditation instructor, and huge supporter of mindfulness and self-care, Jeff is planning his second book, and continues to pursue his ultimate roles of passion as motorcycle rider and father to three wonderful boys.
