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 #339 - Your Personal Temple

The body has its needs.
To these you must attend.
When tired you must rest it.
When injured, it must mend.

Do not neglect this temple.
It serves a vital role.
While there upon the earth you walk,
It provides housing for the soul.

Some give it far too little care.
Some tax it a bit much.
Some fail to treat it lovingly
And ensure a gentle touch.

For years it’s made to serve you.
So treat it with respect.
Honor it, this holy church.
Its needs do not neglect.

It’s harmony that you should seek
‘Tween your body, spirit, and the mind.
And when this balance you achieve
Then peace and joy you’ll find.


  1. A very important reminder for me today from the world of spirit... "It's harmony that you should seek 'tween your body, spirit, and the mind." Do not neglect the physical body. Take time to rest when tired and to heal when injured.

    On to seeking greater balance in my life today...

  2. Really nice poem. I like the words "Your personal Temple."

    If we don't maintain our health or neglect our body we may find it difficult to maintain joy and balance in our lives.

    We need to respect our body and "Honor it, this holy church,"
