Season Of The Tear to Late Night Booze Prank
What is the season of the tear we all must face
Hopefully nothing as trivial as the booze prank
Season Of The Tear (English sonnet)
A world now strange echoes with bitter rain
My heart so longs for things I can’t explain
For purposes just seem to disappear
Adrift in swollen river filled with pain
My mind still grasp to memories so dear
These shores of hope now jagged and unclear
The truth of it grows harder to maintain
A dream perhaps with warnings of some dawn
Some lingering of shadows of the night
What winds so stings from things I didn’t try
Here at the edge of everything is gone
My yearnings search for seasons of the light
What winds will kiss forever my goodbye
Step back from this sonnet for a moment. What is it really talking about? In essence it is trying to arouse feelings; Feelings we can all relate to. Add to this, we have all lost something. Therein lies the cleverness of this style of expression. To paint in generalities, so others may join in a feeling. Also note: how the sonnet uses the words, the expression, the concept, "What winds".
I put this sonnet together reflecting on all that I have left behind in my life, There was, of course, my beautiful late wife, Arlene, the best job in the world, my youth (which I had the pleasure to live twice), my friends, the places, my heroes and the list goes on and on and on. What a life! Add to this: when I was an orator for the Masons, I used to recite these long speeches everyone had heard before. One of my mentors taught me to listen to the lives of others and to incorporate what I learned into my recitations. Not only did this make me a popular orator for the Masons, it gave me the gift of walking in other shoes (even if only a small part). I know, as a fact, we have all had seasons of the tear.
To go with the season of the tear: Michael Ortega."It's Hard To Say Goodbye"
Now let's bring a season of a tear to some New Year's Eve party goers
It is believed that the ancient Babylonians were the first to make the tradition of New Year's resolutions. Where did the tradition of toasting in the New Year with alcohol come from? Think about it. Does man really need an excuse to drink? Above Average productions got an idea from Jimmy Kimmel's Halloween show, where kids are told that all their candy was gone. Now, New Year's Eve partiers are told all their alcohol was gone.
How will these adults react? "Late Night Booze Prank"

My coffee gets increasingly better
the more I drink and the closer
I come to the bottom of the cup,
where all the sugar is.
I wonder if life is the same way
as we approach the end.
