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 #141 - The Great Play of Life

For the third day in a row, a completely new rhyming pattern...

Curtains part, revealing a scene:
The great play of life.
Each separate act with a pause in between.

Actors are you all,
Playing out your separate roles
Before the curtain does fall.

Step onto the stage and bow.
You’re here to create and enjoy.
Deep inside you know how.

Speak the words, play the part,
Carry out your lines.
Release what’s in your heart.

Grand is the stage upon which you act.
All the world is yours.
You can’t escape this fact.

Strive hard to win the prize:
The greatest gift of all,
When you step off to the skies.

Then you’ll find that this great play
Has prepared you for the next.
In your acts you learned the way.

Play your role here with great care.
Everything you do does matter.
While for the next life you do prepare.

  1. A recurring image from the world of spirit today as life is compared to a "great play" with all of us as actors. I'll have to check back to see which poems have used this image before. I find it intriguing...and fun. I especially like the line, "You're here to create and enjoy." Surely seems we are co-creators and not just reading lines.

    On to enjoying our meaningful roles in "the great play of life" today...
