Her Window to Where The Heck Is Matt
From a limited world
To a limitless world
Her Window (sonnet)
The sun casts rainbows from the dew on ground
From answers which will never more be found
What mysteries a shadow there creates
Her silent stares across the endless straits
Spring’s blossoms which were never meant to be
A haunting tide across some memory
The promises her faithful heart restates
A world once grand to wishes relegates
She doesn’t see the stars which bless the night
Her very soul is searching for some light
With all else gone the dream she dawns are fate’s
Until returns some meaning through hope’s gates
She sits beside her window where she waits
A lady is lost in time in this sonnet. This is not a Shakespearean sonnet. Let's take a look at the rhyme scheme: ABBA ACCA ADDA AA. Part of the rhyme scheme is progressing and of it remains stagnant. Part of the sonnet represents the world (moving). Part representing a lady who is waiting.
I believe we should live in the now, look forward (plan for) the future and every now and again enjoy a memory or two. One thing haunts my mind and challenges this belief. I used to be a houseboy. I cleaned people's houses. I had one customer, Mrs. Worth. She lived in a large apartment on Nob Hill. She was very wealthy. Her husband had passed away. Yet Mrs. Worth showed no sign of remorse. Her entire apartment was decorated in her brighter days. Days when her and her husband where world travelers. There was no television and the radio was tuned into ab oldies station. If she wanted to go outside, there was a spectacular garden on the roof. All of her food and needs were brought to her. Her children worked very hard to keep their mother's dream and happiness alive. Mrs. Worth lived in a past. There was no future. Her wealth had frozen time (for her). And there, in her time, she waits.
I still believe we should live in the now, look forward (plan for) the future and every now and every now and again enjoy a memory or two. But my past keeps coming back to haunt me. First there is my wife, Amor, who is very proud of me. She loves to mention my achievements and the places I've taken her. And don't even mention weddings, unless you want to look at volumes of pictures. Then there is my family and friends who love to bring up the volumes of remember whens. Then there are all of the achievements, which every now and again resurface. I am in my golden years. I am no longer that young man I used to be, as my body on the tennis court reminds me. There is so much I can no longer do. Yet there is so much I have done. So should it be with all of us. As old age creeps up on us it should have to deal with the legacy of things that we did well. Our achievements are those things important to us. Try to live in the now. Build in this now. And here in this now Enjoy.
A song to go with the sonnet: Hope "Who Am I To Say"
