I - Intuition

For I", I chose Intuition. And I am at a loss for a catchy, relevant story this morning, so I wrote a poem:

That chip behind your ear
the scratch under your nail
a wire of sudden hints
details do not entail

Mind that quiet creature
that rights your moral code
your gut stretches your torso
and can move you head to toe

But its nature is inconspicuous
and at first it trusts you full
until you avoid the effort
and cave into the pull

If you ignore it once
it may simply give a shrug
but twice you get a minor pinch
Then a screech if you get smug

Just ask yourself the question
"What is it should I do?"
and the first convicted answer
will ring for you as true

If we could listen to our gut
our quiet intuition
without an explanation
and rationalized suspicion

Then quicker our decisions made
and less the consequence
of emotion, or error, or fault
as guidance into life's suspense


  1. Well-written. Pay attention to those twitches just behind your ear. They're telling you something.

  2. Lovely poem!
