“Human presence is a creative and turbulent sacrament, a visible sign of invisible grace”. John O'Donohue

I'm listening to...

..."This Blue World"
from the album  "The Take Off and Landing of Everything" by Elbow.
Lyrics by the glorious Guy Garvey (on whom I have had a massive poet crush for 15 years!) 

This blue world and her countless sisters
And all that came before that day
Our atoms straining to align
Was the universe in rehearsal for us

When all the world is sucking on its sleeve
You'll hear an urgent morse in the gentle rain
And if you plot your course on the window pane
You'll see the coldest star in the arms of the oldest tree
And you'll know to come to me

In the back of a broken car
When the blizzard blossom flew
Reading aloud with our fingers
What we both already knew
And the blizzard blossom flew

A sober midnight wish
Flies over the roofs and down through the years
Would that you and yours are sleeping
Safe and warm in size formation
While three chambers of my heart beat true and strong with love for another
The fourth is yours forever
