Stroke the kitten’s whiskers. This is how the cat it feels. Whatever brushes past these hairs With this feeling the cat deals. You do not have such sensors Projecting from your face, But you have a similar system Firmly planted in its place. Your energetic body Extends well beyond your [...]

Poem #283 Alms for the Poor

2010-04-29T05:20:45-04:00April 29th, 2010|

Behold your brother. He stands with hand outstretched. “Alms for the poor,” he begs. His life it seems so wretched. His clothes they may be ragged. His face dirty and unclean. These outer signs of poverty Are not what they do seem. His true lack is on the inside – [...]

Twisted branches reach for the sky Gnarled fingers reaching high. Many years they’ve seen gone by, And now they stand and wonder why… “Why, why did the wind just blow past Leaving us to feel it last Before it went and ran away Standing alone at the end of the [...]

Poem #280 Awakening

2010-04-26T05:30:28-04:00April 26th, 2010|

Awakening … Opening your eyes and truly seeing. Is this reality Or temporality? Shaken up it is - my world. All I thought was real now swirled. Like pieces of a puzzle mixed around And one tiny piece fell to the ground. What is that missing piece That to my [...]

2010-04-24T05:33:48-04:00April 24th, 2010|

This one, a direct and very clear answer to a friend's request for guidance from the spirit world ... Watch your words like a hawk. Do you whisper or squawk? Sometimes others can miss And sense a venomous hiss. When what you said came from pain And in your voice [...]

As the turtle walks, So do you advance. Slowly, step by step Your life you do enhance. The journey of your life Is like a winding path, Progressing ever onwards On your spiritual behalf. At times you may lose patience Desiring great advances. But that’s not how growth happens As [...]

2010-04-18T05:40:04-04:00April 18th, 2010|

Trust. An ever-present issue… What is that voice I hear? As if not from outside my ear? Could it be the voice of spirit? So soft I barely hear it? The words I hear cannot be mine. Their message is so fine. Yet who am I to think That from [...]

Light in the sky. Squint your eye. Who can sleep? So much excitement. A new day! But first … to pray. Oh God, Great Spirit, Oh Holy One, What have I done? Gone and forgotten myself again. I wonder when … When … When will I learn to trust? For [...]

Hear the muse But its voice don’t confuse… All words that we send you Come from your own heart. For there’s naught we can say Which from you is apart. All things are connected Intimately intertwined By a web of pure love Which is sewn by the mind. Once thus [...]

Do you think this is a game? And that our message is always the same? Then why do you come sit and wait As if these poems they are your fate? For yes, the message does not change. It’s just the words we rearrange. For so many have not yet [...]

Poem #265 Allegiances

2010-04-11T05:50:02-04:00April 11th, 2010|

“Be in this world, but not of it.” Wise words which you should know. When truly them you understand, Then with Spirit do you go. For yes, in flesh you walk. But flesh is just your wrapping. If you do think it’s all you are, Then your flesh your spirit’s [...]

2010-04-09T05:53:26-04:00April 9th, 2010|

The gentle rustle in the trees whispers … It calls your name. But do you hear it? As subtle as spirit. “Come to me,” it calls As a dead leaf falls. Brittle. No longer useful… Each life on earth comes to an end But you should have no fear. When [...]

Poem #262 Reality

2010-04-08T05:56:13-04:00April 8th, 2010|

(An unusual poem today, but even more unusual is the ABAB rhyming pattern that flowed so easily ...) Swinging from a tree, Back and forth you go, Experiencing such glee To see the ground below. Oh how high you fly With feet up in the air. You watch the earth [...]

Poem #261 Time Well Spent

2010-04-07T05:57:00-04:00April 7th, 2010|

(Note from Suzanne - the poems may be posted at odd hours for the next 5 days, but they'll eventually be posted each day!) Begin at the beginning Where all good projects start. How you start your day out Will reveal if you are smart … Do you rush about [...]

2010-04-06T05:58:51-04:00April 6th, 2010|

Humility – yes, a virtue When you check your pride. The need to feel more important Is something you can’t hide. Pride comes when you do feel Your separation from your brothers Thinking you are somehow best In how you relate to others. It may be in the things you [...]

Poem #259 Never Alone

2010-04-05T05:59:43-04:00April 5th, 2010|

(Regular readers will recognize this voice ...) A soliloquy - Words uttered alone Just as the tree that falls … Does anyone hear them? Speak not with fear But utter your innermost thoughts With confidence Knowing they are heard. Is it so absurd To think you’re not alone? Jack and [...]

2010-04-04T06:01:35-04:00April 4th, 2010|

Poem #257 On Guidance and Hope

2010-04-03T06:02:22-04:00April 3rd, 2010|

This morning I asked a question and the answer came in rhyme. I felt as if the poem were addressed specifically to me because it spoke of the twitching finger which happens to me so often. Other than that detail, the poem is universal, but I asked for another anyway, [...]

Poem #256 Turn the Other Cheek

2010-04-02T06:03:49-04:00April 2nd, 2010|

When someone does you wrong, Turn the other cheek. Some would say it’s folly. Some might think you weak. For what’s the value there? Why forgive another’s acts? Just try it once and send out love, Then see how he reacts. Your Bible says to do this, But most find [...]

Poem #255 True Power

2010-04-01T06:04:27-04:00April 1st, 2010|

Revere not the powerful ones. Over you they hold no sway. It’s you who holds true power When you take the time to pray. Just as a tiny ant does work And carry loads upon its back, You, too, can do great feats in life But without the burden of [...]
