Make A Moment to Magic Show of Zach King 
A magic moment made by lovers 
Magic moments made by Zach King 

Make A Moment (Shakespearean sonnet) 

Let’s make a moment time will not forget
To cast a dream for all the world to view
And prove that wonders really do come true
For hearts whose fragrant blossoms never set
Let’s favor stars of hope which brought us here
By fanning flames of lovers’ fantasies
Till pure imagination scents the breeze
And dance again each time a kiss is near
Tomorrows turn our memories to gold
To settle at the bottom of life’s stream
Let’s bear no shadow ever mar our gleam
Whenever once was beauty is retold
Let’s make a moment in eternal sky
A promise which will never say goodbye 

A sonnet, a song, a moment is made in this Shakespearean sonnet. Many attest a sonnet is a song. In this song a lover is invited to create a world. in the first two quatrains beginning with the word "Let's". In the third stanza the mood changes and "Let's", for some reason, is dropped to the third line. As the song concludes "Let's" again claims its first place position. The initial sentence fragment is restated as the lovers pledge to make an endless moment. 

Arlene and I made a moment in time. A moment made up of many moments. It was 1979. Disco was on the decline. Arlene gets a call from our hair stylist, Ed. He had a deal, and an opportunity we simply couldn't pass up. It was 12 nights on a riverboat on the Mississippi River. One of Ed's customers had sold Ed two state rooms at a ridiculously low price. Arlene and I were already deeply in dept, so what the heck. It was Tuesday when we arrived in St. Paul, Minnesota. The cruise would take us from there to New Orleans, Louisiana, with several stops along the way. Our state room was very spacious, with a view of the Mississippi through a double glass walk in sliding door. There was dancing, in the dance hall from 11 a.m. till whenever. Add to this, our neighbors were of the same mind set as Arlene and me. This meant we all played the same music in our state rooms. This meant we could dance to music on the balcony. (It was softer and more romantic.) For 12 day, there were few places where one didn't pass a couple dancing. 1979, disco was dying, and Arlene and I danced down the Mississippi River. 

The world is changing. One era is ending and a new one is beginning. And we... We too are changing. Oh yes. there are some things come back in fashion, but they are not quite the same. Then there is us. As individuals we see or experience things others may not. As individuals, what may be important to us may not be of value to others.. Confusing? Not really. Put your energy into what is important to you. There are so many things that need attention; there are so many things changing; there are more than enough for us, individually. The challenge is: to do something. Do not be a victim of change, but an active participant. No involvement is too small. If something is important to us, being aware of change, enjoy it to the fullest. Let them live on through our memories. And as our world changes,drink in that we are part of it, and Enjoy.

we remember moments.

  1. Change always comes, just have to roll with it and keep what is important to us a rolling too.

  2. What a lovely idea to make beautiful moments that last. Your poem is wonderful.

    1. You should be very good at this.
      Thank you for your sunshine

  3. We are indeed changing. As we should.
    As an aside, isn't it time for a poem about Amor?

    1. I have witnessed people stuck in time.
      Suggestion well taken
      Thak you for your efforts on my behalf

  4. You do have a way with a sonnet. I think you are a bit of a romantic and there is nothing wrong with that as it keeps the heart alive.

    Some moments don't last they just drift away into another day of heartbreak.

    1. Thank you for your warm words.
      Keep going. Some moments do last. You will see.
