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 #270 - Who Am I?

Light in the sky.
Squint your eye.
Who can sleep?
So much excitement.
A new day!
But first … to pray.
Oh God, Great Spirit,
Oh Holy One,
What have I done?
Gone and forgotten myself again.
I wonder when …
When …
When will I learn to trust?
For trust I must
In you and me
And you as me.
Only then will I be free.
This I see
In the light.
But oh the fright I feel
At the thought of letting go.
And so
I put on a show
As if I know all the answers.
Who am I?
This I deny.
And therein
Lies the problem.


  1. A powerful free verse poem from the world of spirit today to remind us that we, too, are divine. Why deny that we are one with Spirit? We must embrace who we are and move forward to reach out in love to our world.

    Thank you, Arthur, for making us think this morning about the essence of who we really are. May we go forth in trust today as we walk our lives in love...

  2. This poem sounds a little like "Arthur".

    Who am I? What a great question. Why do some days I wake up happy and other days I don't. Another reason to visit ourselves or retreat to look within, to find the answers...

  3. Wow - Lois, your comment ... after receiving the poem I wrote Arthur's closing comment (in his typical dry humor style): "We'll make them think a bit today, won't we?" Love it!

  4. Thanks for sharing Arthur's closing comment, Suzanne. Love it, too!

    And, Jennifer, you surely did guess right. Arthur has a way of making himself known, doesn't he? I find his work refreshing and insightful. He still reminds me of my dad. :)

  5. Lois, how did he get the name Arthur? Did he say he was Arthur in one of his poems? That's nice he reminds you of your dad...
