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 #56 - Why Suffering?

Emotions of this life
From which you seek relief

Fear not the hurt and pain
When into your life cometh the rain
These are but markers along the journey
All must face
With life they come apace

Never welcome
But a needed part of growing
Suffer them knowing
That such is how you grow

Out of darkness comes the light
The hawk cannot take flight
But for landing
In these opposites find understanding
True growth comes at a cost
What is found must first be lost

So in the darkness seek the glowing
That comes from inner knowing
Find inside the comfort and the care
That through your pain
Love is always there

Life may not seem fair
But there’s an order and a reason
For every earthly season

The blossoming
The growth
The dying
Repeated through the cycles, through the years
Bring the laughter and the tears

All a necessary part
Of evolution
The solution
Is to accept the flow
And with acceptance truly grow
This please know:

You are Love
And Love can never die


  1. My prayer is for "acceptance" this beautiful morning on the last day of August. In my heart, I believe all that you are saying, Spirit World, but thank you for the message of hope and comfort once again. "The solution is to accept the flow and with acceptance truly grow." But most of all, I love the last two lines: "You are Love and Love can never die." Powerful!

  2. Sometimes these things are hard to accept but with these words come comfort.
