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 #247 - Choices

Sitting on the doorstep
You watch the world go by,
Picking shapes out of the clouds
That float across the sky.

Formless shapes that with the wind
Take on an image known -
Matching patterns in your mind
That once before were shown.

Your beliefs are like those clouds above.
They rest inside your head.
Creating actions you do take,
Not fresh new thoughts instead.

If fresh interpretations were
Your response to each event,
Imagine how your world would change
To challenges that were sent.

You would be freer then to choose
And how you would react.
You’d be stuck not in such a rut.
So routinely do you act.

The choice is there for you right now,
To choose the way you see.
So will you choose your patterned way
Or choose to be set free?

And thus unchained how will you act?
With love or out of fear?
The answer’s simple if you stop
And choose God’s voice to hear.

And so today turn t’ward the sky
And with freedom see your choice.
Then go forth and cast aside old ways.
Speak with a fresh new voice.

For every moment of the day
You create your life anew
By choosing how you see the world.
The choice is up to you.


  1. Fabulous poem..

    "So will you choose your patterned way Or choose to be set free".

    It's so easy to stick to our old habits and to stay the way we are without making changes.

    We all make choices that affect the quality of our lives. Maybe it's time to look at our life with fresh eyes and to evaluate how we respond to various situations. Do our old ways work or do we need to step out of our box to find new ways?

    "Speak with a fresh new voice." I love like this line and feel encouraged after reading this poem...

  2. What a special and beautiful cloud analogy! The spirit world suggests today that we see with new eyes. Forget the old patterns and enjoy new interpretations of the events of our lives. Recognize new opportunities to be "co-creators" of our walk along life's path. Lovely poem with a powerful message to give us help in making decisions today. "And choose God's voice to hear."

    On to fresh interpretations, different choices, and "life anew" as we send out the love...
