The Promised Isle to SpaceX Interplanetary Transport
Lovers reach their paradise
Mankind prepares for interplanetary travel
The Promised Isle (Shakespearean sonnet)
This place so long ago we dreamed we’d be
Here is the hope we built a life upon
Just open up your eyes and gaze with me
From here the sea we traveled looks so calm
Bold storms enhancing shadows far away
While here soft breezes offer heaven’s balm
So rest my love there’s time enough to play
For all around such wonders to explore
And time it has no purposes to keep
And cares became the things of fabled yore
All this and more when you wake from your sleep
Dream on my love we made our promised isle
And as you dream I’ll be there in a while
Something more is hidden in this Shakespearean sonnet. This is a sonnet about a couple who arrived at their goal. There is one thing missing that should lead us to something hidden in this sonnet. Clue: Most of my sonnets have conflict stanzas. This one does't seem to have one. Or does it?
For me, life is a wonder. My childhood was pretty messed up. Then I met Arlene and everything seemed worth it. Arlene and I went through many phases and weathered many storms. We survived it all, together. We did some pretty remarkable things on the way. We were never financially rich. Life granted us just enough money to get by. We were blessed with two outstanding children, Peter and Robin. By the time we reached our 40's Arlene and I had lived a full, rich and remarkable life. Then we were made young again. Life's situation required us to turn back time and be that 25ish year old couple again. Life got even better. We learned to live beyond money. Arlene ad I were so popular that others would often pay our way. People were constantly trying to treat us for something we had done. On August 11, 2003 Arlene died. She lived such a full life that for three days people came to her viewing. There wasn't enough room at her evening vigil or the funeral mass the next day. The Masons, a men's organization, held a reception in Arlene's honor. Arlene had reached the promised isle.
I still say, life is a wonder. The love of my life has died. But for five days an endless flow of people, of faces would help these tear swept eyes see how full our life had been. Most people comment how short life is, how quickly time passes. I don't feel like this. For me, time goes by real slow. I have lived and enjoyed many lifetimes with Arlene. Now I am living yet another life with Amor. Is our life too short? Is time too short? I wish that I could share my secret. If there is a secret at all. All I can say is: Live life to the fullest. Fill life with the things that make you happy, things that are important to you. Life is a wonder. Your wonder. Claim it. Live it. And Enjoy.

Mars is the fourth planet from the sun and last of the terrestrial planets. A little less know fact is that over 100,000 people have applied for a one-way trip to colonize Mars in 2022. Space Exploration Technologies Corporation, better known as SpaceX, is one of the companies planning on taking them there. SpaceX, is an American aerospace manufacturer and space transport services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California. It was founded in 2002 by former PayPal entrepreneur and Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk.
