A Simple Start to iPhone 7 by Pineapple 
Memories of a simple start for lovers 
Memories of a simple start for a company 

A Simple Start (Italian sonnet) 

I dreamed so long to wake in paradise
That suddenly somehow that dream came true
I kissed a world my senses would entice
And challenge everything I thought I knew
The sun was warm there in sweet flowers' arms
Whose fragrance seemed to sing upon my heart
And all around I’m taken by the charms
Which have no end yet share a simple start
A simple start that soon would shake this dream
Who lost his eyes to see simplicity
Now paradise must listen to me scream
What use to me when eyes no longer see
And now I hear the stars as they pass by
I sense a rhythm lost so long ago
And though I learn I cannot share the why
A simple start was not for man to know 

A scent  of something calls to a lover in this Italian sonnet. The essence of this sonnet is to paint a beautiful picture of love. Everything seems wonderful. Then something returns to shake paradise. A memory of a sweet harsh truth. 

It was 1999. Arlene and I had reached the height of perfection. We were not financially rich, but we were in such big demand that we rarely, if at all, had to pay full price for anything. Life had laid so much at our feet that we had to give back through our charity endeavors. Arlene and I were big. And love... Paradise! Arlene and I enjoyed a remarkable life and love up to this moment and there would be much, much more after, but 1999 was our best year. In the midst of all of this beauty and glory, I was taken to 1971. A simple start. A boy moved in with the girl of his dreams. Arlene and I loved each other so much that it was hard to believe that this was really happening to us. Add to this fairytale the palace in the sky, overlooking San Francisco, our home and playground. We were very happy back then. We are very happy now (in 1999). Why did Arlene and I leave this paradise? Was the present paradise better than the others, the start. Was something missed? This and more was not for man to know. 

There is one thing about living a full life. Memories. Living a full, rich life creates full, rich memories. Memories which would take their own lifetimes. Luckily, for me, the bad memories tend to drop off. Our memories form the footsteps for our future. Now, here's a paradox: We should live in the now. We should use now to make memories for a great future. Be confident in ourselves. Be confident that we are making the best moments. And as we look at our memories they will echo back, Enjoy.
