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 #38 - Reincarnation

For this second poem today, I aksed Mike's question: "What can you tell us about reincarnation?"

Lives on earth are short-lived in your time
But measured this way cuts it fine
So much to do
Hard to fit into one life
All the lessons and the strife

So you come back to do it again
Repeat the cycle once or twice
And then
Move on to other realms

Did you live before as a tree?
We say no, can’t you see?
Soul force is your essence

A tree’s a tree forever more
But human beings can no more
Come back as something other than they are
Once a man, a man you are

Not all come back
In fact, quite few
And this they simply choose to do
To learn the lessons
They failed to learn first time around.
When they did walk upon the ground

So look not at every soul
And wonder if they lived before as man
How to execute the plan
Depends on many factors
Requires many actors
Each going his own way
Only God can say
Who moves on and who goes back
Each to take a different tack

Where to go? What’s the solution?
It’s all a part of evolution
As the soul develops fine
Moves farther t’ward the Divine
No longer in need
Of returning to a seed
But growing
In knowing
And so moving upward toward the light
Once they’ve got it right

This is life
A constant journey toward perfection.

  1. Wow...the Spirit World is providing insight into the controversial subject of reincarnation. I found "Not all come back, in fact, quite few" an interesting line because it indicates that many souls do not reincarnate. Yet it allows room for those souls that feel they have lived before in human form. I especially like the ending today..."This is life, A constant journey toward perfection."
