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 #132 - Forgiveness

Forgiveness --
The greatest gift …
When used to heal a painful rift.

Those who harbor hate and anger--
Who hold for others hardened rancor,
Hold within their chest a stone
Leaving them to feel alone.

Yet when you find it in your heart
To heal that which does set you apart,
Then you know the inner peace
That enters with a great release.

It comes when you can finally say,
“I do forgive you on this day.”

Forgiveness doesn’t say, “You’re right.”
It doesn’t carry power and might.
It’s nothing but a touch of grace
That brushes softly 'cross the face.

And without judgment says, “I know
That all of us are here to grow.
And if I send you love, not hate,
Then easier will be your fate.”

For all must pay for what they do.
You face your actions, this is true.
But seeing that we all do err
And showing that the love’s still there
Then in this way you show to all
That even those who take a fall
Can walk the straight and narrow path
When met with love instead of wrath.


  1. What a well stated poem about "forgiveness." I love the line "Hold within their chest a stone leaving them to feel alone."

    When we don't release our anger and hate it can affect our hearts and make us lonely. We hinder our healing and allow our bitterness to spread like Ivy. We can begin to feel love again when we let go...

  2. A beautiful reminder of a lesson difficult to learn. We all seem to know the facts of karma and we seem to know the great release of forgiveness, but do we ever learn? Send out love...not hate is the message today.

    May we all feel the grace of "inner peace" this day as we walk our paths in love and forgiveness...

  3. I love the line

    It's nothing but a touch of grace
    That touches softly 'cross the face

    Forgiveness sometimes takes a long time and a lot of thought but it seems true that you free yourself when you forgive .
