Saving Grace – Love, Kindness, Spirituality

Saving Grace

saving grace


This poem was inspired by There is a Better Way by Tony DeLorger  

Saving Grace is something we all need
To compensate for our imperfections,
Love, kindness, spirituality we should heed,
When wishing to make the right connections.

As we grow older we hopefully have learned
From mistakes we made along the way,
To take the same path where we were spurned
Causes a lot of heartache, sorrow and dismay.

Mother Earth has also learned from our mistakes,
She knows humanity cares too much for power
And not enough for woodlands and lakes,
Or the beauty of Nature in nooks and bowers.

May humanity awaken and do justice,
To Mother Nature, no more to deface,
The beauty which was gifted to us,
And may we do it with our saving grace.

I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.

    Thanks you Phyllis and glad my work inspired this heartfelt plea to honor the natural world as we should. Let our words change how people perceive the world and be a catalyst for change. Kudos.

    Yes indeed saving grace a catalyst for change. Poets words have changed many hearts and souls throughout the centuries, we won’t stop now. For that is what we do, inspire other by our words. We are a beacon of light to many in stormy weather. Beautifully penned Phyllis, Kudos indeed.

    I thimk l many people need to read this and understand that we are Our own worst enemy .Some do not care to learn from their Mistakes, Some even enjoy running against the wall and smacking their face into It. If you don’t learn from your mistakes you are doomed to repeat them. Saving grace is something we need by the barrel. God help mother nature cause we are doing a bad job of it. Too bad there aren’t more people like you who actually connect with the natural world. Nice work Phyllis
