Poem #55 What Lies at the Core

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 [...]

2009-08-29T08:31:53-04:00August 29th, 2009|

Fish swim upstream against the current Dark waves push them back Who can say when all we hold dear Will come under attack? Sit quietly and ponder the future Like that dark wave it does loom Before us Filling us with doom What lies beyond it? You see not through [...]

Two poems today (#52 and #53) When toward the light you travel Mysteries of the world unravel There you’ll find All things divine Comfort beyond measure Greater than your greatest treasure For there beyond the curtain One thing you’ll know for certain: Love is real It’s warmth you’ll feel Undeniable [...]

2009-08-26T08:50:34-04:00August 26th, 2009|

A friend asked the question: "Why can’t I see or understand with my physical mind what I have always felt inside?” Spirit works not as most people think We have no need for food and drink We see not with physical eyes Touch and taste no compromise Our hearing comes [...]

Poem #48 A Perfect Body or a Perfect Spirit

2009-08-25T08:53:07-04:00August 25th, 2009|

A hand curls into a fist A limb misshapen From some a perfect body is taken But he who knows of imperfection Knows greater truths beyond detection Many look with pity on the soul Who they picture as not quite whole Oh, what a shame! They do proclaim But they [...]

Poem #46 The Glory of Nature

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 [...]

2009-08-20T08:58:05-04:00August 20th, 2009|

Silence the wind It bellows and howls through the night Filling young minds with fright “Oh, please, turn on the light!” They cry Great fear in the eye Soothe a furrowed brow To calm them, you know how Wipe away the tears Help dissolve the fears This is what a [...]

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 [...]

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

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 [...]

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

“If at first you don’t succeed Try, try again” Words such as these Spur the deeds of men But how, pray tell Do things get done When you think that you’re The only one? Nothing happens by itself Your fame, your glory, and your wealth… These are gifts given to [...]

Poem #34 True Beauty

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 #32 What Should I Do With These Poems?

2009-08-11T10:04:12-04:00August 11th, 2009|

First spoken poem. I ask: What would you like me to do with these poems … will I do one on one readings, or write a book? Do you see me standing before large groups and speaking extemporaneously to answer people’s questions? How far can we go with this? (Note: [...]

Poem #29 How Do Butterflies Become Signs?

2009-08-09T10:13:08-04:00August 9th, 2009|

I asked: How do butterflies become signs from the spirit world? You think and see things with limited eyes You don’t understand how vast is the mind That controls all of nature. We can move mountains if we wish But there’s no point in this A tiny insect we can [...]

Poem #30 Where Do The Answers Come From?

2009-08-09T10:11:45-04:00August 9th, 2009|

Today I asked the spirit world a very personal question from a friend. I was interested in what would come through because I had no idea what the answer was. Once the words started flowing, however, I knew the answer very clearly, so when I was finished writing her poem, [...]

2009-08-08T10:14:11-04:00August 8th, 2009|

#28 8AUG09 Poem #27 was another personal one in answer to a friend's question. I'm getting the clear impression that the spirit world wants me to use them to help people in this way, so I asked what types of questions they would like to answer from other people… Truth [...]

Poem #26 Boys and Their Toys

2009-08-07T10:15:46-04:00August 7th, 2009|

I got snippets of lines that in the back of my mind I recognized from previous poems (Since time began, there’s been a plan… Heaven isn’t far, it’s right here where you are… Co-create, that’s your fate …) I asked them to give me something different, and they did: limericks!!! [...]

Poem #25 Heroes

2009-08-06T10:25:11-04:00August 6th, 2009|

So what happened to poems #23 and #24? Well, I tried an experiment. I had two friends give me questions to ask the Council of Poets. I asked and received two beautiful poems in response. The answers are very personal, though, so I don't want to put them on the [...]
