So Strange to Suicide Squad the weird trailer 
Lovers whisked off to a strange new world 
A strange movie trailer gets even stranger  

So Strange (Shakespearean sonnet) 

It seems the world we knew left us behind
So strange how quiet permeates the air
So strange how worries seem so hard to find
Just heartbeats to remind that we’re there
Let’s take this hour of freedom by the hand
So strange that we had once knew what to do
So strange that we can’t handle the unplanned
Perhaps we still have dreams to guide us through
Let’s start forgotten journey with a kiss
So strange their memories now far away
So strange their memories have led to this
Is this the dreams and hopes of yesterday
It seems the world we knew has said goodbye
As we are free to give new love a try

A Shakespearean sonnet and/or a poem within a poem. Instead of pointing out the obvious, lets share two minor ideas. In the second quatrain, second line: I used the word "knew", instead of the word "known", because "knew" sounds like "new". In the third quatrain the last line:I used the singular "Is this..." to refer to  "dreams and hopes" instead of the plural "Are these...". I wanted to establish a new view of hopes and dreams. I hope this sonnet has planted some seeds. 

I don't have to go into a long elaboration into this love sonnet. I trust we are all familiar with the endless wonderlands of love. No matter how many times we revisit a treasured moment, there persists some unique "something more". Am I too far off? Oh sure, one could say, nothing is ever the same. But to mingle with magic, to loose ourselves in lavishes of luster, to grant the eternal wind wind one more sacred scent carried by flowers in love. Am I too far off? So strange. So welcome. So true. 

Did we see this coming: Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton "Love Is Strange" 

The strange gets stranger 

In 2007, an American consultant named Corey Taylor tried to fake his own death (including a legal death certificate) in order to get out of his cell phone contract without paying a fee. (Clue: One may be able to fool the government, but one cannot fool Verizon.) On August 5, 2016 Warner Bros. Pictures plans to release a strange new movie, "Suicide Squad", in which a band of supervillains accept a secret government mission that will likely result in their deaths. The trailer is already out. Aldo Jones has gone one step further.He has taken the strange and created the stranger.

The minute I heard my first 
love story, I started looking 
for you, not knowing how 
blind that was. Lovers don't 
finally meet somewhere. 
They're in each other all along.


  1. Rumi is always wise.
    And love is always strange - except to the lovers.

    1. I couldn't agree with you more.
      Thank you for this affirmation

  2. 'Nothing lasts forever' is a comfort at times, an uncomfortable fact too. But love is all around. We lose some, we win some, we miss some, we re-kindle some... but mostly, never give up looking...

    1. Once we know this... how long can a dance be?
      Thank you for pointing out this valuable truth

  3. Beautiful poem. "Is this the dreams and hopes of yesterday
    It seems the world we knew has said goodbye" Lost a great love to suicide and these lines touched a wound deep inside. Maybe in the next reincarnation we will get it right.

    1. Great insight.
      Thank you for adding this gift

  4. Love the line! "Let’s start forgotten journey with a kiss" Martin such emotion and imagery! Great job!!!

    1. Ginger,let love be the moment.
      So glad you enjoyed.
      Thank you for everything
