ALCHEMY
by Selia Qynn 1990

Creator, inpiration
And creation manifest -
Spirit into matter...
Who would ever really guess
That paradise before us
Is a precious gift at best,
And at worst, a cosmic test.
If the salt loses it's savor,
If the charge doesn't hold,
If God cannot indwell in us,
Then what good is the mold?
The difference in a lump of clay
And a vessel made of gold,
Is just what it will hold.
