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 #66 - The Mysteries of Life

This morning as I cleared my mind to become receptive to the words, I saw a salamander in my mind's eye. I found this very strange, and like all other thoughts that try to intrude when I'm trying to meditate, I gently pushed it away. The salamander, however, kept coming back, and then the words followed:

You see a salamander in your mind’s eye …
A slimy lizard and you wonder why.
What does a reptile have to share?
Feel his skin, if you dare.

You call him slimy to the touch.
This shows you don’t know very much.
For this is one of God’s greatest creatures.
Gifted with the greatest of features.

Do you know that if his leg you remove
God’s creative powers he will prove?
For that leg will re-grow itself.
How is that for awesome wealth?

Tiny cells they grow inside.
And every one it does divide.
To replicate its very soul.
And continue growing as a whole.

This is life in physical form.
Not chaotic, but total norm.
A testament to God’s great gift.
This knowledge all men should uplift.

Your science tries things to explain.
But many mysteries do remain.
For there is much beyond your ken.
Far beyond the book and pen.
Things you question day and night,
But see not with your limited sight.

So much goes on behind the scenes.
Run by God who has the means.
To keep all in its perfect order.
Truth will come when you cross the border.

Then you’ll see with clarity
God’s great gifts, His charity.
For now look with wonder on all you see.
It’s part of you, for He lives in thee


  1. Oh, I like this piece on the salamander. A lover of nature, I find it fascinating the poets would choose this image to help explain the mysteries of life. I wish we could know all there is to know about God's world, but it seems we must wait until we "cross the border." Today I will take special note of the natural beauty all around me!

  2. These poems are so wonderful - always different but brings us back to the truth. God does wonderous things.

  3. The poetry in the poems is growing. this time very rich imagery is used. Up the poetic ladder of poetry you climb.
