Advice for Going On 

Advice for Going On

Think of someone you adore,
say Mary Oliver or Goethe
or, of course,
Rumi, the master of all.

Consider where their
connections came from,
somewhere invisible.
never on any map,
unless you count
the lonely attic,
the hours spent there
for so many,
the striving for perfection
even when the ears had failed
or the pen could hardly be
held in the hand.

What was it
that kept them going,
even when all else
even when no one noticed?

Would you be willing
to give your life to this?
To forge ahead,
no matter what,
as the roses sang to you
in the garden,
as you danced
to the music
that only you heard?
