The Three Sages
Sonnet — Daily Poetry for The Master of Works #8
A sage of work is God’s dear emissary,
His skills not embalmed in worldly amber,
But put to use by tools of Spirit’s mastery;
The sage by God’s own works grow and aspire.
A sage of devotion is God’s cherished expression,
His devotion not mixed of human mire.
But given happily to Spirit’s myriad motion;
The sage by God’s passion joyously discover.
A sage of knowledge is God’s eternal gaze,
His knowledge not a mortal’s trifle,
But adorns the beauty of His infinite forms
By soul’s philosophy sublime and subtle.
The three sages are a one spirit in infinite movement;
To clasp and be clasped is the purpose secretly fulfilled.
