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 #256 - Turn the Other Cheek

When someone does you wrong,
Turn the other cheek.
Some would say it’s folly.
Some might think you weak.

For what’s the value there?
Why forgive another’s acts?
Just try it once and send out love,
Then see how he reacts.

Your Bible says to do this,
But most find it too hard.
The greatest gift is to forgive,
But this advice you disregard.

If you would only see that
Your brother’s just like you,
Then forgiving all wrong action
Would be an easy thing to do.

Only in forgiving
Do you model right behavior.
This was demonstrated clearly
By the one you call The Savior.

Try this day to be like him
If another does you wrong.
Instead of lashing out this time
Change to a loving song.

If only more would act like this
How soon would others learn.
And then there would be no longer need
A single cheek to turn.


  1. Beautiful message for us on this Friday of Easter week...words chosen to express the power of forgiveness. "This was demonstrated clearly by the one you call The Savior." The world of spirit tells us to send love...not hate...return love...not anger.

    May we heed the words of Spirit as we walk our paths in love this Good Friday...

  2. A lovely way to celebrate "Good Friday".

    If we can extinguish our anger and look past the wrong doing of others our lives will flow more peacefully...
