Goodbye Maytree


I summited the monument again today.

As I looked out over the ocean, over

the weary shacks and the dunes, I felt small.

This task of letting go,

of resisting bitterness and finding peace,

is something I can do.

It is not my failing when others find love.

It is not my flaws that cause others to leave.

I will climb this monument every day

until the work is done, until I am whole.

This is something I can do.

This is a task, a task of letting go.

Wine is bottled poetry. ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
