letting go

 
 

cool fog 

pulled in

by the desert’s

hot breathing

 

small birds

in the cactus

and scrub oak 

sing

morning

 

so still

 

the ocean 

far below

the end 

of the road

is

here

 

letting go

is not

an

action

a doing

a gesture

 

it is like

the rain

 

falling

 

becoming

the stream

the river

the sea

 

effort

less.
