I never wrote a poem before 2020.

In 2020, I wrote 3 poems.

In 2021, I've written far.


It all started on February 17 2021 when I heard the first 2 stanzas of the poem in my head:

Here to there // There to here

Leap of Faith // Nothing to Fear

This continued for the next 45 days. I dutifully received the messages, found the image and published the poems. Each day I wondered if it would be the last. On April 2nd I got my answer, in total, I was gifted with 72 poems. The sheer number amazed me, but I had no idea what story was being told.

As the number and frequency of the messages increased, I became extremely curious about the story unfolding. Only after the last one fell in place did it occur to me to check the dates of the Divine downloads for any significant pattern and my amazement grew exponentially:

Day One, February 17: First Day of Lent

Day 44, April 1: Last Day of Lent

Day 45, April 2: Good Friday

These poems, taken in total, told a story that speaks to the awakening, expansion, engagement and expression of Christ consciousness. Full story: Journeying to Easter


Volume 1, Seed: The Awakening Story

The message of awakening, arising and committing to the next level of our personal and shared journey. This is completely in alignment with the secular work of seeding, rooting and growing sustainable wealth in all its forms. Sample Poems: The Awakening Story

Volume 2, Root: From Shadow to Light

The message of this series is how to move from Outrage to Stewardship to reclaim our role as a part of Nature, rather than apart from it. Sample Poems: From Shadow to Light

Volume 3, Grow: Dancing with the Shadow

Now that we’ve moved from shadow to light, what’s next?

The message of this series is that we must find a way to embrace and ‘dance’ with our shadow. Sample Poems: Dancing with the Shadow

Volume 4, Sustain: Weaving the Shadow and Light

The dance continues and the dancers move closer to each other and nature. Sample Poems: Weaving Shadow and Light
