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 #249 - Your Heart

“The faint at heart” - what does it mean?
Weak and timid, prone to scream.
The term depends on how you choose
The image of the heart to use.

For yes, the tool which in you beats
With a pattern that for years repeats
Can grow old and then expire
When from so many beats it does finally tire.

But used to mean your very soul,
Then your heart is always whole.
Never faint, but always strong,
There to guide you your whole life long.

But why the heart?
Why use this part?
Why not the head?
Or some other part, instead?

For it lies within the place that works the best.
To feel the love well in your chest.
It rises up, but can subside
If love you show or choose to hide.

So never forget the heart’s sole role
When used as a symbol for your soul …
It’s there to keep your connection true
With the Spirit that flows through you.


  1. How sweet.
    I recently learned that by the time we reach 70 our heart will have beaten approximately "two-and-a-half billion times". The heart is an amazing organ especially considering it's size!

    "So never forget the hearts role When used as a symbol for your soul." No matter what we do or how we live we cannot be whole without the wisdom of our heart...

  2. This poem expresses for me the reasoning behind our use of the heart as a symbol for the soul. Truly it is a powerful image representing the love within each of us and our connection to Spirit. When we feel this "connection," we talk of thoughts coming "from the heart." "It's there to keep your connection true with the Spirit that flows through you."

    May we feel the love in our "hearts" today and send light to our world...
