Amira – Poems To Live By


Amira lives with her husband and pets in British Columbia, Canada. She is a retired registered nurse who is now enjoying a fulfilling and peaceful life as she pursues Light, Wisdom and Spiritual Growth through her love of nature and animals, along with creating her daily blog – BodySoulNourishmentBlog – that shares inspirational stories, poems, quotes and pictures.

In 2018 Amira began to write Haiku poems (in style rather than following strict guidelines) which she shares on her blog. The majority of poems on this page are Haiku but there are a few longer ones too.

Our ‘Meeting’

At the end of May 2018 I received a contact message from Amira asking if she could share my poems on her blog. I wrote back to her saying of course she could, but as I found out later, I made a mistake and didn’t ‘send’ the message. However, we were obviously destined to ‘meet’ as about a week later I ‘found’ her blog when I was Googling and discovered one of my poems and wrote a comment on it.. and then I found out my mistake. This odd beginning sparked in me a knowing that this was something to pursue with interest! We began to email each other and soon realized that we were alike in countless ways. Around the same age, we have lived extremely different lives but have come to almost identical outlooks, conclusions and share a goal of spreading as much Light and Love as we can around the world.


So many ‘coincidences; have happened over the past few months since we began emailing and following each others sites.

As I began to explore Amira’s blog, and then other blogs of like-minded people, I realized that two of the questions I had ‘put out there’ had been answered: I wanted to bring my poems together and share them separate from this site and I wanted to know if my poems were liked. From the start, Amira was getting lovely comments from sharing my poems, so that answered that one! Then, it just dawned on me to re-vitalize my old blog on WordPress that I had initially started in 2011, but then moved over to here in 2012.

As the weeks passed and we continued to follow each others blogs and email, there were synchronicities happening on a regular basis, sometimes more than daily! For instance, unbeknownst to each other we would be working on the same topic, or when I write a comment to Amira it sparks a knowing in me that what has been said is my next poem to write.

Being on other sides of the world, Amira in Canada and me in England, our time zones are eight hours apart. One interesting synchronicity that happened was when I awoke one morning with a title for a poem on my mind ‘The Super Power’ I knew it was to be about Superheros but Love as the ultimate Superpower. I had no idea why I should wake with this thought (I don’t watch that type of movie!) Anyway, I went ahead and wrote the poem, I then discovered that while I was sleeping Amira had been collecting photos for her blog and had kept one that she had no idea why.. it was a wonderful, colourful Cosmic Superhero that perfectly fitted my poem! It is the remarkable signs such as this, that we are both experiencing, that let us know we are kindred Spirits on our true path.

please note:
I have permission from Amira to share these poems,
please contact her through her blog to request any usage.
Thank you.

Amira’s poems are listed alphabetically on the titles.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

 Poems:  B   

Bask In The Peace Of The Soul

Get out of your mind’s way.
Quiet your turbulent thoughts,
Fear escalates to panic mode,
And inner energy easily dissipates.

Bask in the Peace of the Soul,
Focus your light on a single beam,
Your intent on highest good outcomes,
Stay calm, and know that this is so!

Elevate your eyes.
Above the chaos and negative forecasts,
All is provided for your success,
You live in an abundant Universe!

The currency needed is Love,
A pure heart, and clear intent,
There’s no need to know
Ahead of every step!
You have an inner compass,
That gently guides your way.

Look at Nature’s wisdom:
It has no clocks, no maps, or calendars,
And yet, each Spring brings new blooms,
Animals prepare to rear their young;
And the sun shines every day,
Even when it rains!!!

Bird’s song

A beautiful song
on a branch,
hides in the leaves-
Pure joy with feathers!


Feeling anxious, sad, stressed…
Slow deep breaths:
Ah, washes all away!


Bunny grazes,
Ears alert – stands still:
Thus, he hides in plain sight!


Winged spirit, fly so high
Joyful and free…
A butterfly!

The proud rock that confronts them,
While it erodes into sand…

Where waves gently arrive,
And slowly dissipate…

Sitting in nature…
I feel the interconnection!

Masters Of Light

Masters light our path

Memorable Sight: A Light In The Sky

Clear blue skies, plain daylight,
A giant sphere, bright orange light,
Moves slowly in the sky…

Pulsates, with no sounds,
Stops in mid-air…
Suddenly, takes off in vertical flight!

Then, it disappears in a flash!
On the ground, people stare in shock…
…A “weather balloon” of course!!!


Present in this moment,
Grounded and aware
Fully absorbing it all

Miraculous Hands

Hands that care and nurture,
Hands that heal and comfort

Hands that point the way,
Hands that greet and embrace…

Hands that build and create,
Hands that draw and paint…

Hands that play music
And hands that applaud

Hands that join others
To unite and to help.

Hands open to give,
To reach out, and protect…

Hands close to the heart,
United to pray!

Hands, miraculous hands!
Use them with love, use them with care:
Not to destroy, never to hurt!

Share them with others,
In a welcoming gesture
Use them to play and to caress,
Fill them with love, generosity, and tenderness

Each day remember
Gratitude to express,
For the miraculous gift
Freely given to you
The gift of your hands
To touch and to bless!

On The Wings Of Angels

Going through difficult times,
Your angels are whispering
Rays of light.
Through stormy days,
They show us the “silver line.”

Always there to assist,
Always there to guide,
Opening doors of love and light,
Working behind the veils…
All we need to do is ask!

It’s our free will, our choices,
To let our fears and worries go,
And trust in the infinite Forces,
To lift us over our problems:
On the wings of Angels…

Let your spirit soar!
On the wings of Angels…
