Spiritual Poetry

Allegory addressed to the intellectual powers, while it is altogether hidden from the corporeal understanding, is my definition of the most sublime poetry. William Blake

After spending forty years of my life in left-brain lock down, and never writing a single line of poetry, I woke up one day and started writing poetry. The very first poem I wrote was The Song of Creation. The Song of Creation is an epic poem, like Blake’s Jerusalem. Like Jerusalem it is a recounting and a prophecy. It is the entire story of creation from the first glimmering to the ultimate and inevitable denouement, but with a difference. In this creation story there is no good and evil, there is no “us and them.” In this creation story the multitudes are brought together in shared purpose and in so doing all excuses and justifications are removed. The violence and disregard, the hierarchy and the privilege, the pain and the suffering, end as we finally realize and remember that we are members of the same glorious family of Spirit. If you visit the Song of Creation book page there is a link for you to download the full text to read for free. You can also support this work by purchasing a copy for your coffee room table.

After writing this book length poem I went on to write other poems, like Reed, or Shambhala Warriors, or The Redemption. A couple of poems are just for fun, but most have deeper spiritual significance. Indeed, some poems are “messages” for this time and this place, in the sense that William Blake speaks of the messages in his poems. It would be possible, I suppose, to write out the “messages” of these poem in prose form, but then not everybody is ready to hear, nor, even still, are all people inclined to be concerned. I would not bother those who are not ready, or who do not choose. Let them live out the rest of their lives as they so fit, hopefully hurting only themselves. For the rest, the messages are here when you are ready. Just follow your intuition and read that which you are guided to read.

My poems are all listed below, along with a short commentary by yours truly. I add to them as the spirit moves me. Feel free to share these poems around, or to republish them in your online or print magazine.  You can make payment through Paypal for use of the poetry to michael@avatarpublication.com if you are able. Failing that, a reference, proper attribution, and an email informing me of you use is sufficient.

  • All mimsy were the borogroves All mimsy were the borogroves, and sadly swam the air. As  Vorpal blade came snacking, trailing famsy Bander’s fail. And in the morning yarrow, was the feckless crowd warned fair. But dimmed and daily waggled, they ignore prophetic tale. And daily wind and rain and violence grew the rankled snatch. And more the queries, drama grew, as fate imposed the ...
  • Reed I think this is my favorite poem of the bunch. So subtle, so understated, but so potent and empowering. Of course, that just MHO so take it or leave it as you will.
  • I’m not here… So many things to say, so little time to say it. I guess in the end you either wake up, or you don’t. No sense crying over spilled milk in the end.
  • I Am/ We Are This is a poem about the relationships between the spiritual ego, and the bodily ego. It speaks to the initially antagonistic relationship between the two, and the eventual merging of the little ego of the body with the big ego of consciousness. It was inspired by my own realization that the goal isn’t to kill ...
  • Holy Grail For all the mystical mumbo-jumbo that surrounds the concept, the Holy Grail is simply the awareness of your true identity. You’re not a descended ape, you’re not a cosmic child, you’re not a karmic reject. As outlined in my Book of Light, you are God with a big “G” and the sooner you realize that, ...
  • Full Divine I don’t know what the big deal is with the words “I told you so.” I know I’m certainly not above saying that. So, when you get that first energetic touch of recognition, when the energy ripples through your body, when your scalp tingles, and your heart seems like it will burst from your chest, ...
  • Witches’ Brew This poem started off a bit more aggressive than it ended up, but in the end the question is still the same. You can see things are getting a little crazy around you. You know something must be up. So what are you going to do? Swim in the same old shit and abuse, or ...
  • Wake Up This is an excerpt from my Book of the Triumph of Spirit. It is about putting aside old energy limitations and embracing the power and glory of who (and what) we truly are. GOD/Consciousness/Spirit incarnated in the flesh.
  • Crystal Child’s Song This is a poem for the children of the world who suffer endlessly in silence because the adults in their life can’t get their proverbial shit together. Patience little ones. The day is coming fast when the silent endurance of this world’s suffering children will be nothing but a sad, bitter, memory of a long-gone ...
  • Sleeping prophets This poem is for all the “sleeping prophets” out there who babble like bubbling brooks without a point, or a clue, talking about mass arrests and relying on mythical connection to long dead famous people for their “this-life” notoriety. This is for the people who sell themselves, and others, out for power and/or profit. This ...
  • If it wasn’t for… This poem is a call to truth and reality. You can pretend that everything is OK if you want, but the reality is this world is filled with greedy and violent disregard. People take and when try to stop them they lie, cheat, steal, and kill. The world “as it is” is not fun and ...
  • Rejoice, for death is near I wrote this while watching some protestors on television engage in random acts of violence. The poem is about people who think change will come at the point of a knife, or the barrel of a gun. More to the point, it is about people who consciously intend violence and destruction. There’s a lot of ...
  • Energy Goes Where Consciousness Flows This is just a little reminder, as above in consciousness, so below in matter. Reality comes and goes based on the contents in your consciousness. In other words, if you want to change the world, change how you think about it. If you need help, that’s what I’m here for.
  • The Birth of Christ In his song Live High, Jason Mraz says “god peaking through,” but that’s not what we’re after. We are after the expansion of light, the explosion of divinity, and the total embrace of this planet. It is what The Great Invocation is about and it’s what I was feeling the day I wrote this. ...
  • Kundalini This is a little kundalini activation sequence taken from my Book of the Triumph of Spirit. I believe it is from the card INITIATION (hint hint). It is wrapped up in a poem, and sealed with a kiss.OTOH, perhaps this is just a silly poem written using random images and text with no significance at ...
  • Daughter’s of Isis I’m not big on gender but the truth is on this earth, at this time, and for the last 10,000 years or so, what you got between your legs has determined your experience in life. In the out of balance yang of this patriarchal world, women have had it hard. This is not to say ...
  • In the Trenches We’re all busy with our normal lives, I know, I know. But you have to make some space for the new world in your life. If you don’t, you’re stuck, and that’s all I have to say. It doesn’t have to be much at first. Just a little here and there. But be on your ...
  • Shambhala Warriors This poem was inspired by the Tibetan Kalachakra Tantra. That’s a prophecy telling of a time when a special group of warriors would be incarnated who would have the skill, talent, and power to sweep aside all obstacles that prevented the unfolding of Shambhala (i.e. heaven on earth). But it’s not what you think. Swords ...
  • Heart Clock Read this with a little tick-tock in your flow. And while you’re at it, check out the E.T.A. (estimated time of arrival). Do you got your things in order? Or are you ready to go?
  • Ode to 2012 I was inspired to write (or is that right) this after one too many emails from profiteering shysters trying to make a buck off of people’s growing fear and confusion. As clueless as sin, and worse than the purveyors of the secret they are. Shame on them.
  • Unification Day I wrote this while I was deep into the cosmology of my Book of Light and slowly realizing the awesome and magical truth of creation. Despite what the dumb ass materialists want to think, consciousness is the root of all things!
  • The Redemption This poem is a bit of a “prophecy,” and a desperate plea to all the well dressed people riding their camels. Its not business as usual boys. Things are changing and you don’t have control any more. Yo yo. The last words on the topic are written and the final warning has been g-i-ven. So ...
  • Pied Piper I showed this to a lady once who thought she was attuned. She looked at me like I was crazy. Then I showed it to somebody open and receptive and wanting to learn and all they could say was wow, wow, wow, wow. I guess it just goes to show the difference between locked down ...
  • Hey Diddle Diddle This is just a little reminder, herbal good, chemical bad. I mean really. Just because this planet is a hunk of dirt doesn’t mean we should treat it that way. Gaia has given everything we need from the food and the water to the entheogen and the medicine. There’s nothing to be afraid of and ...
  • Brew If you’re connecting with the energy of this poem it’s going to be a little bit of a shock. There’s a sense of urgency here and a message to wake up now before it gets so crazy that you can’t even think. You think things are changing fast now? You ain’t seen nothing yet.
  • MessenJah I can’t say it any better than Bob Marley did in his song Get Up Stand Up. We know when we understand Almighty God is a living man. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvK8E-RHZOk .
  • I AM/WE ARE Many, perhaps most, gurus and mystical experts will tell you that in order to advance you have to subdue, even kill, your ego. Presumably this is because your ego interfers with enlightenment and your higher self. Honestly, that’s a bunch of bull cocky. Saying that you have to destroy your ego sets up an internal ...
  • Tiggly Wiggly How do I describe this one? Written in a silly mood while sitting at the computer, it deals with the serious problem of disjuncture and alignment and the collective nature of the transformation.Still, the message is dead serious. As above in consciousness, so below in matter. There is a lot of inertia and resistance so ...
  • Snake Oil This is just a little reminder, awakening, empowerment, and ascension starts in the mind. There is no “ascension technology” and no magical product bullet. Though a little wave from a magical wand might make a difference.
  • Sleeping prophets This poem is for all the “sleeping prophets” out there who babble like bubbling brooks without a point, or a clue. This is for the people who sell themselves, and others, out for power and/or profit. This is a warning. Time to get a fucking clue.
