Poems about spirituality inspire and touch the heart. Few things motivate people more than faith, hope, prayer, and God. The Latin word for spirit means to breathe, and these spiritual poems breathe life into the soul of their readers. While true spirituality is difficult to define, many define it as the quality of being connected to something bigger than ourselves as opposed to material or physical things. That is what these poetic writings convey.

I always said that when I die,
I would love to return as a butterfly.
One with yellow, velvet dominions,
Fragile and lofty pinions.
I confused freedom of flight,
With a more placid folly of delight.
I fancied a short life of absurdity,
Rather than one of...Read More

To see me is to look

To view what I have hidden
in the depths of my gaze.
To hear me is to listen
only to the half breaths
And recognize the difference
between solace and anxiety.
To judge me is to walk
barefoot along broken...Read More

Thou Little One Categories: baby, bible, faith, jesus, spiritual, time, tree, Form: Rhyme
Thou little acorn of great potential
fear not, your growth can be exponential.
Although you have a tiny start,
it need not produce faintness of heart.
Fall deep in the earth, and let the sun’s rays
be the thing that hallows all of your days.
Every Feather Earned Categories: angel, appreciation, humanity, native american, sister, spiritual, Form: I do not know?
Life never handed her brocades
no silver lining accolades
Diligence, her saving grace
dreams and faith interlaced
She would know the deepest loss
become the one to fight the cause
Sheltering the brokenhearted
the lost, lonely, and discarded
Her loving choice to enfold
seeing the goodness in every soul

with frozen souls and
unused magical dreams''.

A rainy autumn day
when memories come calling,
