Singing Bowl: Collected Poems by Malcolm Guite
Malcolm Guite's second poetry collection The Singing Bowl takes is name from the breathtakingly beautiful opening poem, a sonnet which connects poetry and prayer.
It includes poems that seek beauty and transfiguration in contemporary life; sonnets inspired by Francis and other outstanding saints; poems centred on love (which might be used at weddings), others on parting and mortality (which might be used at funerals).
A further group, Jamming your Machine, searches for the life of the spirit in the midst of the modern era and includes an ode to an iphone.
