This one, a direct and very clear answer to a friend's request for guidance from the spirit world ...
Watch your words like a hawk.
Do you whisper or squawk?
Sometimes others can miss
And sense a venomous hiss.
When what you said came from pain
And in your voice did remain
A taste of your hurt.
Choose your words with great care.
Others may not hear what is there.
Hear your voice through their ears.
Do they hear rancor or tears?
The written word is quite tricky.
So you must be a bit picky,
Pairing words which impart
That you speak from the heart.
You may know that your mind
Means only to be kind
But this does not always convey
In the true words that you say.
Stop yourself ‘fore you write
Make your prose clear and tight
Then give it a test:
Did my heart say it best?
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.
