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 #327 - Held Captive

Sickness of the heart –
That which pills can’t cure.
It comes from misunderstanding.
But misunderstand no more.

The killing has to stop.
The taking of a life is wrong.
But so many minds are poisoned
When they see killing all day long.

It’s there in your entertainment.
To which you give all your devotion.
You see the bloodshed by the hour
And watch without emotion.

How can this not affect you?
How can it not hurt the soul?
You place more attention on what is false
Than to that which makes you whole.

Turn off the entertainment.
Deal with each other face to face.
Instead of blood and killing
Let true love then take its place.

Your television holds you captive
When you watch it by the hour.
Release the chains and feel the love
And then you’ll know true power.

  1. Another truth from the world of spirit today... violence on t.v. hurts the very essence of who we are. I have experienced this truth in my own life, and I now know I cannot subject my soul to the trauma. A book, a run, a bike ride...or just "being" is the best choice for me. "Release the chains and feel the love and then you'll know true power."

    On to filling my soul and our world with light and love today...
