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 #59 - Cause and Effect

With crystal vision you see the trees
The mighty oaks with golden leaves
Turning every autumn

To become brittle and fall to the ground
Tired and brown

Having served their purpose
Their role in the cycle of life complete
This life it is replete
With stories such as this

The endless cycles of birth and renewal, growth and maturity
Round and round to eternity
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
Life goes on like this it must
For this is natural law

And what of man?
How do you fit in the plan?
The highest creation still
Because you have free will

Judge not they who thinks not as you do
A different stage of life do they go through
Knowing not the rules
They seem to you as fools

But who’s to say who’s right or wrong, better or worse?
It does no good to scream and curse
At those who see not eye to eye
Let their actions pass you by

Send them love instead
In this way you get ahead
Progressing step by step along your path
Leaving others to their wrath

For though each soul’s connected
The other’s way should not be corrected
But left to straighten on its own
What each reaps is what he’s sown

The effects come from the cause
This is the greatest of God’s laws
Infallible in its action
Every cause has a reaction

Knowing this step out with trust
Leaving footprints in the dust uniquely yours
As you cross through open doors
Look behind and see the turns you make
The result of every step you take

  1. Today's poem is a lovely reminder of the fact that we are each walking our own path in this lifetime. We may not understand the actions and views of others, but we should not judge them because their way is different. My favorite line today is "Send them love instead." Amen, World of Spirit!
