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 #298 - The Light's the Same

From Hattiesburg, MISS.

A new and glorious day.
What do you say
To greet it?
How will you meet it?
With a smile?
Will you sit a while,
Or frown …
Your lips turned down
In a sneer.
“Why are you here?
Oh sun in the skies –
So bright you hurt my eyes.”

The light’s the same.
It’s you who plays a game.
One day glad
The next one sad.
Oh worries.
Oh bothers.
So many distractions
The dissatisfactions.
You just don’t get it.
So you let it
Take you away
From the light -
Your true sight.

Oh, blessed one,
Do not turn from the sun.
Are you not always turning?
Yet for peace you are yearning?
Stop where you are.
You need not look far.
The light is your guide
It burns also inside.
To reveal it
You need simply feel it.
Ask to be healed
And the pact it is sealed.
No wavering.
Just savoring
The love…
Your Source -
The Divine Force.
Once you choose it,
You’ll never lose it.
