He Searches to This Mobile Phone App is For You
Will he ever find that which was lost
Will they ever find an app that was lost
He Searches (sonnet)
Some flowered field which blessed another day
He wonders how such things should fade away
When splendors of such promises were crossed
He searches past those treasures meant to last
Those dreams which scented each new morning’s sky
He wanders with a time which went too fast
And left a heart to sigh of things gone by
Where is that spring which lovers used to know
The meaning of tomorrows in its flow
The answers to each season in its glow
How foolish of the wind to let it go
He searches others tears upon the ground
A path to end his searching was refound
Sure, it looks like a Shakespearean sonnet. But it's not. The first quatrain follow the standard ABAB form. The second quatrain switches to the CDDC form. In the third quatrain all forms are lost, as we turn to EEEE. As tis sonnet concludes, we return to the standard rhyming couplet. This sonnet uses sonnet forms (or formlessness) to emulate what is going on within the sonnet.
There are many ways to interpret this poem. I didn't know of the many other ways this sonnet can touch. My first wife and childhood sweetheart, Arlene, died. She was only 49. Gone was the future we had in planned. We shared a dream in our time together. I went through four years of mourning and reconciliation and reconstruction. I then met and started courting my present wife, Amor. As we got to know each other I found out Amor was going through the same thing as me. It was like life had planned (fated) us to meet and complete a plan set.
How often have we heard, "Why is this happening to me?" What this sonnet is trying to say is that sometimes things happen for a reason. The answer may be in the tears of the person which once was us us or that we became. The answers in the tears could come from someone or something else.I am not suggesting to wait patiently though life's challenges or to work through them, although this may be good advise. Advise I didn't take. I am suggesting: Life can be magical.
How about some guitar to go with this:

What would this magical life be without our mobile phones
According to the Guinness World Records, the fastest texter in the world is Sonja Kristiansen of Norway. All you Star Trek fans: Remember those communicators? Who would have imagined the modern mobile phone could do so much more? New apps seem to be coming out each day. Remember those things called the typewriter? The average office secretary was expected to type at least 60 words a minute on one of these. The average teen can do this on a mobile phone with their thumb. And pictures... It has become truly mind boggling what today's mobile phone can do.
I mean it, It has truly become Mind Boggling what a mobile Phone can do. "Tired of Texting? This App is For You.."

For the meaning of life differs from man to man,
from day to day and from hour to hour.
What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life
in general but rather the specific meaning of
a person's life at a given moment.
Viktor E. Frankl
