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 #35 - God's Gift

“If at first you don’t succeed
Try, try again”
Words such as these
Spur the deeds of men

But how, pray tell
Do things get done
When you think that you’re
The only one?

Nothing happens by itself
Your fame, your glory, and your wealth…
These are gifts given to you
Because it’s your due

Everything you achieve in this life

Is a gift from God
You may find this odd
But nothing happens without His knowing
No coming or going

He watches all with eyes that see
For his eyes are your eyes
His heart is your heart
It’s plain as can be

There’s no separation ‘tween the two
You are God and He is you
How’d you get here without Him?
Do you think you got here by some whim?

You’re an expression of his love - He comes through you
Believe this, it’s true
The Great Spirit lives and breathes
In plants and flowers and rocks and trees

Everything that you call life

Is spirit through and through
And the highest of all his creations, of course, is you.
Cherish this life that you’ve been given
By love of Spirit it’s been driven

All the glories of this great earth
Were given to you at birth
To you and everything that lives
God’s love and blessings, these He gives

Savor every moment that you breathe
Yet know that when you leave
This earth, there’s more
For you have lived before
And you will go on living
For God’s spirit goes on giving
After your last breath
Beyond the transition you call “death”

It’s impossible to kill
God’s everlasting will
To give you life-His greatest gift
May this knowledge your spirits lift
This day and every day that follows
Soar high like the swallows
And return each year
From far and near
To receive his blessing.

That is all.


  1. I see today's poem as another lovely message of comfort and reassurance of our oneness with all of creation and the World of Spirit, too. I especially love the lines:

    "The Great Spirit lives and breathes
    In plants and flowers and rocks and trees..."

    And then:

    "For you have lived before
    And you will go on living..."

    My heart is filled with happiness as I read the words above...

  2. Suzanne, just caught up with the past week's poems. Much wisdom. Thanks for sharing. Since you were told, no limit to the questions, how about asking what drives both religious and scientific fundamentalists to such strict interpretations of the Bible and science, respectively?

  3. Thanks, Mike, for the question. It was an excellent one!
