About a relationship disaster. True story about driving and seeing 6 different hawks on the journey. In a number of different cultures hawks are messengers.


On my way home from DC Six hawks sitting and staring at me From the branches they sat upon Telling me it’s time to move on Part of me still wants to love you Despite the pain you put me through And even though I hurt today I wonder why it went astray On the highway showing me a sign Six hawking staring from their pines Elders say hawks never lie Now they’re urging me to fly You taught me to care about myself Then turned and left me on the shelf So now you’ve gone the other way And I live through another day Bridge: In my dreams a window opened I flew out and your spell was broken Driving down the interstate Hawk flew across and caught my gaze Looked at me and I took her to say You’re flying free, now keep it that way
