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 #352 - You Cant' Take it With You

From Glendive, MT

Share all that you have
For nothing’s really yours.
There’s only one thing that you take
When you pass to heaven’s shores.

It’s those who think belongings
Are the things that matter most
Who’ll find that when the time comes
There’s little reason left to boast.

Take a look around you
And see where your value you do place.
Then ask yourself if there exists
A truth which you should face.

Simplify your life, my friend,
Place your value not on a thing
But on loving kindness and compassion –
Assets which happiness do bring.

Be generous and kind.
Give freely of your Self.
Then even if you have no things
You will enjoy true wealth.


  1. "Share all that you have for nothing's really yours." A blessed truth that is difficult to learn, but oh, so true. Today's poem is very appropriate for me as I seek more ways to simplify my life.

    On to sharing our wealth of love with our world this day...

  2. Inspiring poem...

    This poem is perfect for me today because I often want more but like you say, "Place your value not on a thing But on loving, kindness and compassion-".

    I like your statement Lois "that it can be difficult to learn and live by this truth" that nothing is really ours...
