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 #242 - Baby Steps

First you take a tiny step,
When before you only crawl.
In this way of moving on
There is no risk you’ll fall.

But slowly you look at your feet
And see how now you move.
With one foot before the other
You can now get in the groove.

Your evolution is like that
As step by step you grow.
Asking for life’s answers
In your heart and mind to know.

These come not always in one burst,
But often as a slow progression.
And sometimes when you are confused,
You suffer some regression.

Like a spiral do you go,
Moving forward sometimes back.
But always upward t’ward the truth
Of knowledge that you lack.

For your whole life’s about all this:
The evolution of your soul.
And it is this that pushes you –
The longing to be whole.

Keep searching for the answers,
But know they’re all inside.
Planted there just like a seed …
In your heart they do reside.

And there along your journey
As you water it with love,
All truth will be revealed to you
Like sunshine from above.

So walk; there is no need to run
As you progress from your crawl.
For this journey’s to be savored,
The act of loving most of all.


  1. The images are effective this morning with the baby/child, seed, and spiral. We are reminded to enjoy the moments we are given in this lifetime. Continue to seek guidance from within to grow, learn, and serve. And the promise from the world of spirit is that "all truth will be revealed" eventually. No need to be in a hurry.

    May we "savor the journey" this day as we walk our paths in love...

  2. Words of encouragement that I so needed.

  3. This poem reminds me of today. I encountered an old friend who recently had a baby boy and she was holding him in her arms. He was slowly trying to open his eyes after taking a nap and finally a little smile broke through.

    In many ways we never stop taking "baby steps". We all evolve so differently but without the love of others we will never blossom or open our wings...
