The Richness of Letting Go

As the embrace of the earth

Welcomes all we call death,

Taking deep into itself

The right solitude of a seed,

Allowing it time

To shed the grip of former form

And give way to a deeper generosity

That will one day send it forth,

A tree into springtime,

May all that holds you

Fall from its hungry ledge

Into the fecund surge of your heart.

John O'Donohue
