Standing there, having just picked up his saxophone five minutes ago, he was merely running scales and simple warm-up melodies. His own music lately seemed flat in spirit. Since he was a young man he had come to this garden, and for some reason, good fortune, inspiration, or even clarity on life decisions came his way when he visited that spot.
After playing for over an hour, he felt the same. No change. Dropping his sax abruptly, he growled a moment into the space around him. Trying not to grit his teeth at his frustration, he stared hard at his case on the ground near his feet, ready to throw his saxophone into it and pack up for home. His thoughts, however, kept getting pulled, and in his anger he didn’t recognize what was happening.
He heard it…. A sound he couldn’t recognize and without thinking the reed touched his lips again. Wetting it first, he felt a melody rise from deep inside of him. He even began to sway and rock back and forth, his dance partner in his hands. His fingers fluttered the keys, unlocking a rhythm that began to climb. He opened his eyes, and that’s the first time he saw her, ever, but he wasn’t surprised. She had already picked up on his cadence, and her body shivered and flowed with the song. She was the closest she could be to his saxophone when their eyes locked. The finale of the tune resonated in the air around them until all they were left with was the heavy breathing of their eminent longing.
