the art of letting go

Tuesday, August 25, 2015



I was determined
not to write him poems,
not to sing him songs,
not to limit him to the boundaries of my pen.


For what would he be
but just a figment of my mind,
a wisp of jumbled words,
a puddle of murky water?

So I learned the art
of letting go.

I released him
to the clear mountain air,
to the early morning sunrises,
to coffee shops and campfire worship.

There he was real,

and there I found him.

    1. Actually, O, when I wrote this, I'm kind of ashamed to say that it wasn't about God. But I think it could be, and I think that if He's what you thought of when you read it, then that's what it's about to you.

      Thanks for stopping by and always commenting! It means so, so much!

    2. It could be about God, couldn't it? I'm glad you said that; I hadn't looked at it from that perspective before.
