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 #79 - The Gift of Love

Prose. Words of beauty put together.
Words used to describe things of your world.
But what of beauty which words can’t describe?
The beauty and love deep inside?

For this you need the heart.
Feel the waves ...
The flow of love that burns within the chest.
It lies in wait; it wants no rest.
But aches to be released and fly.
To spread ever outward ‘cross the sky.
“Oh, share me!” it does cry.

This gift isn’t meant to be kept inside.
It’s not something you should hide.
But share with those who need its heat.
This we can’t enough repeat.

Love is always there, but you should know
It’s there just waiting to bestow.
A choice you make, to guard or give.
In which manner will you live:
Holding back this gift you harbor
Or sharing it with heartfelt ardor?

Love thy neighbor as thyself.
In these words rests all your wealth.
For with this burning you do feel,
You possess the key to heal.

And on this gift can be no price
It’s treasure that can melt the ice
And warm the souls of all you touch
What other gift can do so much?
