Endless Moment (Shakespearean sonnet)
What was that endless moment lost in time
Perfection cast its scent upon the air
The world had sent a fairytale to climb
And everything of meaning was now there
Sweet flowers in the meadows breathed a pause
As music of surrender thrills the breeze
The streams of dreams search heavens for a cause
As heartbeats race their passions to appease
Arise arise from veils of golden mist
To crown the wave which rush through paradise
Those eyes those eyes which evermore have kissed
Will light the ways which whispered winds entice
What was that special moment never through
Another memory I made with you
One more moment without end is echoed in this Shakespearean sonnet. In this sonnet the conflict (the third stanza) is not a problem, but an intensified mood. This was accomplished by the repetition in lines one and three and by having the repetitions rhyme. Thus the "conflict" was resolved, in the rhyming couplet, by returning to the calm.
Another moment Arlene and I shared was around our fourth Anniversary. Arlene's mother was becoming a traveler. She wanted Arlene and me to join her and her sister on the Zephyr, train tour, from San Francisco to Chicago. She offered to cover more half of the expense. Arlene was dead set against it. A whole week with her mother and I had a reputation of drinking too much champagne with that aunt (another story). After several weeks and some shopping sprees, We told her mother yes. This was almost 40 years ago, but I highly recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys taking in the sights. The entire trip took almost 4 days. The scenery was spectacular from our tiny, yet comfortable sleeping quarters but indescribable from the observation car. It was a movie that had no end and one didn't want it to end. It couldn't be real, yet there it was. We saw the Rocky Mountains like never before. There were lakes and rivers and forests and plains. Endless, unbelievable plains. And witnessing the unbelievable with the unbelievable in my arms... I can't speak highly enough about the Zephyr crew. If one needed anything they were always right there. Speak of right there, we saw very little of Arlene's mother and Aunt. We had dinner with them once. Funny. with all of Arlene's shopping sprees. we could have paid for this whole trip (just exaggerating). Funnier still, I had heard so much about Chicago's hot dogs, that's all I ate while there. Funnier still, my champagne reputation with Arlene's aunt would surface on the air trip back home.
I enjoyed the "great outdoors". Arlene's father could get lost in the wonders of his garden. Peter and Robin (my kids) were fascinated by seeds and seedlings. The point is nature is all around us. It has many, many levels. Enough levels to hold the marvel, fascination, imagination of everyone on this planet. Who am I who say that hiking in the Grand Canyon is greater than successfully growing something from a seed. That sounds ridiculous, until one reflects. I am not creating anything. I am just taking things in. Difficult? Sure. But so is patience. And there is another truth. We are all different. Nature is so grand that it holds something just for us, at our level (and no level is higher or lower than any other level). So it should be for all things. So find that part of mature that is made for you. And as you take it in remember, "I am me". and Enjoy.
