Spiritus

Last week at our Conference, Sue Hardwidge who was leading Morning Prayers, read Steve Turner's poem Spiritus, and then Dan Foster, improvised a sax solo around the melody of 'God in my living, There in my breathing', by Tim Hughes. It was sublime! Here's the poem:

I used to think of you
as a symphony
neatly structure,
full of no surprises.
Now I see you as
a saxophone solo
blowing wildly
into the night,
a tongue of fire,
flicking in unrepeated
                 patterns.
