Ripple In Still Water

In the begining was the word which was good: followed by interpretation and exploitation. Amongst the waffle there's been examples of divine inspiration:

William Blake proved that you did not have to be from this planet to influence it.

Shakespeare wrote about all the universal themes available at the time.

Karl Marx did a lot of thinking about inequality; he did not take into account his own influence.

Wilfred Owen a poet whose subject was the reality of the First World War represents a missing generation," > />
John Lennon, working class hero, had a way with a turn of phrase.

Monty Python's Flying Circus proved that there is no reason ever to grow up.

Max, Paul, Josh, Theo - a romantic and/or kitchen sink look at family life (depending on the editor).

The Shipping Forecast" > />The Radio's prayer. Prayer by Carol Ann Duffy.

Some days, although we cannot pray, a prayer
utters itself. So, a woman will lift
her head from the sieve of her hands and stare
at the minims sung by a tree, a sudden gift.

Some nights, although we are faithless, the truth
enters our hearts, that small familiar pain;
then a man will stand stock-still, hearing his youth
in the distant Latin chanting of a train.

Pray for us now. Grade 1 piano scales
console the lodger looking out across
a Midlands town. Then dusk, and someone calls
a child's name as though they named their loss.

Darkness outside. Inside, the radio's prayer -
Rockall. Malin. Dogger. Finisterre.
