Spirit of Release

Calm … quiet … serene
is the scene

Lush … green … gentle
in the woods

One brown leaf
finally falls
under the swelter of summer
after having held on
a bit too long
through autumn and winter

Sometimes it’s best
in life
to relinquish your grip
when the pressure
of the past
becomes overwhelming

Sometimes the rope
slices hands
if you don’t let go
when the ghost
on the other side
has already vanished

Soft … silent … resting
is the heart

Open … ready … smiling
for new seasons
