Let go, unlearn, give back

Let go, relinquish
Charms, talismans, taonga.
Return them, in the turning time
To their source.

Unlearn, put aside
Chants, prayers, incantations.
Exchange them, in the changing time
For silence.

Give back, but gently
Loving and being loved.
Then leave them, in the leaving time
And go alone.
