Letting Go


“Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it. It’s like boats. You keep your motor on so you can steer with the current. And when you hear the sound of the waterfall coming nearer and nearer, tidy up the boat, put on your best tie and hat, and smoke a cigar right up till the moment you go over. That’s a triumph.”
― Ray Bradbury


I climbed the hill
in search of the promise
i thought I had to fulfill
It would take hours
still I continued
for there was a tree there
that held a message
with which I was to return.
When I reached the top
where the tree once stood
was a stump
I stood there crying
for how could I fulfill
my purpose
what message could I bring back?
I sat a long time
close to despair
still it was rather nice up there
green grass and warm sun
and a quiet that I could hear
I left carrying
the hill’s serenity
and the message of “Letting Go”


Blessings, G
