The brook is babbling,
'Let it go. Let it go now.'
Water under bridge.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
I wrote this to accompany a watercolor painting I did; a light, ethereal work of 2 skeletal trees beside a mountain stream. The painting was done years ago; the verse this year.

If one is betrayed in a conscious self serving way, not in a thoughtless way nor as a result of errors-of-omission, it is very difficult to forgive. But, at the end of the day FORGIVENESS is an attribute of the strong, not the weak. I like the articulation, insight and penning of the poem. It's very short but powerful. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
