A comment on poem #57

2009-09-02T12:03:17-04:00September 2nd, 2009|

Almost every day I wrestle with my doubts that I am "making up" these poems, even though I don't have any idea what the theme is going to be when I start writing the words I hear. The spirit world is so patient with me, in spite of my doubts. [...]

2009-08-30T08:30:48-04:00August 30th, 2009|

For clarity of vision Look within That which seems inscrutable See with new vision There inside the spirit lies To animate the body Which walks and speaks Yet knows little of the valley and the peaks Of mighty mountains So high, so forbidding To climb them seems A task quite [...]

2009-08-21T08:56:19-04:00August 21st, 2009|

Curtains rustle by the window A gentle breeze blows against the folds The cloth gives way To mysteries untold From where cometh the breeze? Does it come from the trees? Or is it Spirit driven? Yet another gift God’s given … All of nature tells a story Of God’s great [...]

Poem #44 – Knights in Shining Armor

2009-08-19T09:18:59-04:00August 19th, 2009|

An interesting experience today. I’ve been dealing with a lot of personal doubts, feeling that I’m making up the words in the poems. I decided to make a concerted effort today and write only what I hear without letting my mind jump ahead and find a word that rhymes to [...]

Poem #42 – Focus on What Truly Matters

2009-08-18T09:22:05-04:00August 18th, 2009|

Write these words today Hasten not to play Surely you can hear our voice Beyond the many thoughts which intrude upon your brain The message it is plain History has been unkind The battles of mankind Constant use of force Takes a toll Leaves you less than whole Forget the [...]

Poem #43 – The Nature of Hell

2009-08-18T09:20:32-04:00August 18th, 2009|

Again, two poems today, #42 and #42, this one in answer to my question, "What is Hell?" Hell’s a place that knows no shame There go those who’ve played the game And lost- Their time on earth they wasted God’s great love they never tasted Spent their days in anger [...]

2009-08-16T09:40:03-04:00August 16th, 2009|

How long must man go on fighting one another? Since time began men have bickered The flames ever flickered Stones they did sharpen Weapons used to kill Forever still When the blood of the body Flows from holes poked with points Broken joints … All of this unnecessary Keeps you [...]

Poem #38 – Reincarnation

2009-08-15T09:46:05-04:00August 15th, 2009|

For this second poem today, I asked Mike's question: "What can you tell us about reincarnation?" Lives on earth are short-lived in your time But measured this way cuts it fine So much to do Hard to fit into one life All the lessons and the strife So you come [...]

A Note About the Poem Titles

2009-08-15T09:44:37-04:00August 15th, 2009|

I realized that my numbering system was making it difficult to go back and find certain poems when I wanted to read them again. I'm adding titles now, but after the fact. Unless I ask the spirits a specific question, I never know what the topic of the day's poem [...]

Poem #36 – The Truth is Inside

2009-08-14T09:58:47-04:00August 14th, 2009|

2009-08-12T10:02:04-04:00August 12th, 2009|

Beauty comes in many forms On the earth you have your norms But when one doesn’t measure up You see it with scorn. Push it aside Attempt to hide That which you label ugly How unkind! Don’t you see? All is beautiful in God’s eye Nothing ever passes by That [...]

Poem #31 – There’s a Reason for Pain

2009-08-10T10:10:36-04:00August 10th, 2009|
