Sat There Softly to Head in the Clouds
Lovers under the clouds find what they were searching for
A couple under the clouds find more than what they were searching for
Sat There Softly (Italian sonnet)
With dreams of something passing through his head
For some tomorrow answers will be shed
But here and now just empty clouds float by
She sat there softly pondering the ground
As wishes weaved sweet songs amid her heart
Perhaps tomorrow fantasies will start
But until then her Joy with flowers found
They sat there softly drifting mid their love
Here life unleashes wonder on their soul
And in tomorrow will they still be whole
But warm embraces now they’re thinking of
Now empty is the place where lovers sat
For time and change have taken them away
It is tomorrow where these two now play
But yesterdays no place as soft as that
Toying with the mind, is an Italian sonnet. This love sonnet gives a mind a lot to drift upon. First we have a boy drifting with the clouds. Then we have girl floating with the flowers. Then we have couple somewhere in the middle. Then they are gone. Here is where the reader's imagination joins the sonnet. The only clue we are given is the word "soft", at the end. Were these two together all along? Did they finally meet? What is meant by "sat there softly"? Does this sonnet refer to some afterlife? Love is magic. Have fun trying to figure it out. (Or just taking it in.)
A little more down to earth than the poem. Arlene and I dated for almost five years before moving in together. It's funny, during that whole time, I never picked up on how unalike we were. How important dancing was to her, and I couldn't dance at all, should have given me some clue. I guess we were just too madly in love. When we were faced with running a household our differences and shortcomings gave us a bitter taste of reality (as a couple).
Or love (and a fairytale palace in the sky) got Arlene and I through it. It turned out, we were very different, but we shared a common childhood and a magical teenage love. Arlene saw that if we learned to work with, enjoy our differences we might be so much more. The cards were stacked against Arlene and I. It was often predicted that we wouldn't last. I have often said that when it comes to individuals 1 + 1 = so much more. So it came to be with Arlene and me. We became Arlene and Martin as opposed to the Kloesses.
Arlene and I, though great lovers, were souls apart. Though I believe, there were moments we met, touched and danced as one, before we parted. Perhaps to feel that good once more is what helped keep us together. Maybe it was just meant to be. Love is magic. And as we take it in or try to figure it out, enjoy.
Some music for the mood: Manuel Franjo "Tiempo"
What have you dreamed in the clouds
It takes somewhere between a few minutes and an hour for clouds to be created. Sometimes clouds appear to take shapes. Have you ever looked up at clouds and used your imagination to make shapes in the clouds? The cast of Studio C have gone one step further. We have two lovers letting their fancies drift in the clouds.
Lesson here: A person's imagination can be dangerous. "Head in the Clouds"

Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find all the barriers
within yourself that you have built against it.
