To Have and Let Go

If autumn falls silent under the evening snow 
If sheltered seeds don winter's coat 
If March winds howl for spring's warmth
If budding flowers emit the earth's scent
If spring pollinators awaken and take flight
If golden rays titillate terra's loam
If nature bears burgeoning yields 
If the impetus for life circles again
If thankfulness flows from within
If we understand the Creator above
then what do we know of love?

Love is to have, to hold, to enjoy, and to freely let go.
Happy Earth Day

    Yeah, OK, I get the deal,
    releasing hold is good, know,
    but if we’re going to keep it real,
    ain’t no way I’m letting go.
    Cancer’s got the upper hand,
    and it’s been a crappy week,
    but I don’t need the Promised Land
    right now, not even one small peek.
    I intend to stay and fight,
    and to myself be ever true.
    It may be dumb but it’s my right,
    and exactly what I’m gonna do,
    and even though all hope is gone,
    I’m right here, so bring it on.
