This piece is inspired by a painting we have hanging over the piano in our livingromm. It's a picture of Herbie Hancock leaning his head on a piano while hitting keys with one hand. The text over reads 'Herbie Hancock blue note sessions'.



Take a few, pause a bit
lean down, keys are hit.

Nameless feeling
corrode the brain.

Notes are reeling
numb the brain.

Babysteps, one by one
nameless enemy, be gone!

Take a few, pause a bit
lean down, keys are hit.

Slower than a feeling
numb the brain.

Notes are reeling
unbroken chain.

Elisabeth, you have taken a difficult emotion to discuss and made from it a tuneful poem -- I enjoy reading what you have rendered -- I bid you joy, love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael
