75263 - Brass mind

N. Lygeros

He took his soprano saxophone.
In Manhattan, he wanted to taste it.
He shaped his lips to the mouthpiece
of this brass mind.
He made a bridge between
Australia and USA.
For that he played a piece
from the favorite things
of John Coltrane.
He heard in Melbourne
for the first time
but now he wanted with him
in this skyscraper near the United Nations.
In the same place
he had played with a banjo…
The round sound of his instrument
was so tender that it could touch
at the same time many souls
living in different floors.
It was like a gift of the wind.
It was also his breath
a deep breath
from his love
about Mankind.
