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 #177 - Knock Down the Walls

Free as a bird that soars so high
Your spirit longs to fly.
Yet kept locked in its prison there,
It doesn’t get to try.

How sad that you should think you’re stuck –
Nowhere that you can go.
When, in truth, your spirit’s free
The universe to know.

Don’t think your spirit’s trapped inside.
A prisoner it’s not.
For spirit’s everywhere at once,
Such freedom has it got.

Your spirit travels best at night,
By thought so unencumbered.
But you can know the spirit now,
Not just in times you slumbered.

So let it soar; just cast it free
And let your soul fly high.
Then greater will you feel the love
That comes from those nearby.

For in your shell you cut off love.
A wall do you erect.
And shutting off your energy
True feeling you reject.

Behold the power of the soul.
It passes through all things.
You only have to know it’s there
To sense the love it brings.

Knock down the walls that cut you off,
That keep you so divided.
And sense the part of you that’s love –
This gift your God provided.

  1. Birds in flight and prisoners within walls... opposite images from the spirit world today to help us envision the possibilities of life with or without love. "And sense the part of you that's love" is my favorite line.

    May we all feel the "power of the soul" and sense the love this day...
