To Go On

To Go On

A Poem by Robert Ronnow

If you see a hawk
on a bough at field's edge
beyond the corner you should have turned
maybe it's a sign to go on.

Such as during an improvisation on
Flamingo or I've Got You Under My Skin
you play in the wrong key or mode completely
maybe it's a sign to go on, in the wrong key.

Or when my sons cry not wanting
to be alone, I'm upstairs writing
or just enjoying trees in every direction
it too may be a sign to go on alone.

I loved the message of this poem. Maybe the fact that you're doing something instead of something else is a sign you should be doing that in the first place. As in, if I was making a song and got a call to go over to my buddies place, but was really enjoying making the song. Well maybe I should be making the song instead. Anyways don't need to explain it to you, thanks for sharing, I enjoyed it.
