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 #73 - The Interconnectedness of Life

A field stretches out before you
Its grass is wet with dew
And in each tiny drop of water
Is hope and faith anew

For in your world of matter
So many little things
Represent the larger world
Of which all nature sings

All that you see is just a part
A microcosm small
For in each drop of matter
Rests a portion of the All

It’s all interconnected
Every thing that does exist
For one without the other
Would soon fail to subsist

The lack of understanding
With which your world is rife
Comes from not respecting
The sanctity of life

What you do to one, you do to all
Be it man or plant or earth
For all share the self-same essence
All are linked ‘til death from birth

If you could only see the way
All life is thus connected
More reverently you’d take each step
More life would be respected

  1. Where is our respect for life and all creation? I think the Council of Poets is challenging us today to spread the message of the "oneness" of life and our "interconnectedness." "What you do to one, you do to all be it man or plant or earth." Yes, we are "one."

    I'm heading out for a bike ride this morning to enjoy the beauty of nature and our world. I will reflect on the words, "All are linked 'til death from birth."
