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 #139 - Growth

A whole new rhyming pattern today...

Growth: they say it comes in spurts;
Oft resulting from some hurts
With a cause that no one knows.

Never doubt that pain is good.
Like deep scars that mar the wood,
It leaves a mark, then goes.

What is left behind grows stronger.
Now afraid to grow no longer.
A new you has thus emerged.

Accept the trials in your life.
Welcome all the pain and strife.
Ultimately all is purged.

See the glory in the pain.
Love the sunshine and the rain.
This is life with all its faces.

You are on this earth to grow.
Even if progress is slow.
There are no special cases.

All are loved the same.
Without judgment, without blame.
On to Heaven do you go.

Life’s a journey of discovery.
Sometimes ugly, sometimes lovely.
So many ways true growth to know.


  1. We are reminded today to be thankful for the hardships in life. I catch myself often saying, "I am tired of learning." I smile at myself because I know inside that greater joy is ahead. This, too, shall pass. "Life's a journey of discovery, sometimes ugly, sometimes lovely" is a profound statement of truth.

    But notice the reassurance in the next to the last stanza that "All are loved the same..." I feel the message of "oneness" here for sure.

    On to discovering and growing with gratitude today...

  2. Yes,our daily experiences help build our lives for tomorrow. Trials and tribulations help us to grow and discover "like deep scars that mar the wood". Our tatoos and pain help us to change and guide us to find ouselves through perseverence...
