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 #224 - What is Reality?

Stroke the kitten’s paws …
How soft they feel.
Velvet to the touch …
Is nothing real?

You look, you see, you taste and hear.
Is all illusion, that which you hold dear?
If real to you these things they seem,
Consider how you feel in a dream…

You move about with silent ease
With all as easy as you please.
Reality’s a shifting thing.
Such a challenge it does bring.

To know what’s real and what’s illusion
Can cause great questions and confusion.
The answer lies not in the brain.
Where misperception does remain.

But in the mind, which does survive –
That’s the place in which you thrive.
Each realm in which you find yourself
Brings to you such growth and wealth.

It matters not what’s real or fake,
Only what learning you do take.
If, indeed, you life’s a dream,
Then learn from it: what does it mean?

Use this time to stretch and grow.
There is no limit to how far you go.
All life is yours to grow and thrive.
Rejoice that you are here, alive!

And when from this dream you wake
Then all your learning you will take
To dream again and learn some more
When you pass through heaven’s door.


  1. "It matters not what's real or fake, only what learning you do take." A reminder again today to live in the "now" and enjoy the moment and learn from it. Our purpose is to grow in spirit. Not to worry...just "rejoice that you are here, alive!"

    May we walk our paths "rejoicing" this day...

  2. I especially like the way this poem begins simply because I am a cat lover...

    This poem reminds me of the "Wizard of OZ".Our dreams often seem more real then our daily existence. There is no limit to what our dreams can tell us and where they will take us like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz.

    "And when from this dream you wake then all your learning you will take." No matter where we are or where we go,take what we can learn and move on from there...
