Lovers At Sea to Arm Through Window
Lovers lost the key to happiness
Magician locked his keys inside his truck
Lovers At Sea (poem)
Nothing to be
Nowhere to flee
Eyes cannot see
How to get free
Taking its fee
Losing the key
Doorway to glee
Lost soulless plea
Lost to this sea
But waves kiss the shore
Of paradise close by
Bathed in the sunlight
Of promised forever
Lovers at sea
Nothing to be
Nowhere to flee
Promise seems hopelessly away in this poem. If the beginning of this poem seemed somewhat boring and unimaginative and may even have gotten on our nerves then the poem did its trick. In fact the word "Lost" was added to the last three lines of the first stanza to add to the tedium. Then, appears the free verse. Refreshing and full of hope. Only to return to reality.
Arlene and I knew Laura and Brett since high school. Laura was Arlene's classmate. Brett kind of came into the picture. They were a fun couple to hang out with. What made them even more fun was that they seemed to have the same "make-out" schedule as Arlene and me. When the mood hit us, we would disappear and meet again wearing a big smile. Laura and Brett got married a year after Arlene and me. They changed. They seemed to get old fast. They liked to visit with Arlene and me. It reminded them of the "good old" days. We invited them to go out with us, but they always had something else that had to be done first. Laura would meet with Arlene to find out how she and Brett might be more like us. But as time went on, Brett and Laura , though they loved each other very much, got older and older. At times having dinner with them was like having dinner with Arlene's parents. Brett and Laura stayed together, but couldn't rekindle the magic of old. Here is one more thing about the poem. Is it about Laura and Brett? Or is it about Arlene and me wondering what happened to our friends?
It is easy for me to tell people that we are as old as we think. I was very active. As a parent, I forgot about my age. In my 40's I worked with people in their 60's and above; and even these acted twice their age. Still, I look back to the days Arlene and I introduced the parties to these once old men. I saw, first hand, couples revisiting a time, long believed lost. As time went on, this more youthful behavior extended beyond the parties. From the moment we are born, the body gets older. But I believe, I have seen that our minds have the power of agelessness. The mind can sometimes do what the body can't. All that is require us is to believe. Believe and we are young again. Believe and tomorrow is ours. Believe in how special you are. Believe and Enjoy.

How about a touch more magic
Rumor has it, in 2017 Volvo plans to introduce cars that will not lock and unlock with keys but with a mobile phone application. This means no more locking our keys in the car. But that is in the future. What can we do if we lock our keys in the car now? Here's what Rahat Hossain, of MagicofRahat, does.
Also, there's the magic hammer. "ARM THROUGH WINDOW MAGIC TRICK!!"
