Poetry Thursday, Let it go edition (not Disney)

Alaska 2008

I think of the trees 
and how simply they let go, 
let fall the riches of a season, 
how without grief (it seems) 
they can let go and 
go deep into their roots 
for renewal and sleep.... 
Imitate the trees. 
Learn to lose in order to recover, 
and remember that nothing 
stays the same for long, 
not even pain, psychic pain. 
Sit it out. 
Let it all pass. 
Let it go.
- May Sarton
