Sonnet 6

You say that intuition is your gift,
And with this claim I cannot but agree;
Your resolutions often are more swift
Than mine, and plucked from air appear to be.
Despite this difference, I would yet believe
Such inspirations rise from the same source:
An inner dialectic, gentle Eve –
Less conscious, yea, and lacking greed or force.
But lest you think I’m placing us beyond
The reach of God, this fact I surely know:
The sacred Self and Garden are the bond,
For here the seeds of Truth await to grow.
Thus, though the Lord insists we always toil,
Salvation He has planted in the soil.
