The Messenger to Tell Him I Said Hi 
A man uses a precious wind to send a message to his love 
Two friends use each other to send messages to their friends 


The Messenger (English sonnet) 

Soft wind which dances somewhere though our past
Refreshing precious flowers growing there
The source for all the music everywhere
Sweet whisper from which all our dreams were cast
-
Sail off and tell my love once more I care
Refresh her air with feelings which hold fast
To memories of meanings meant to last
Within a world which caught us unaware
-
Pray do not soil the sweetness of her sleep
With rains intending to bring any pain
Or toy with Joys which she’s accustom to
-
It’s well and good that I alone should weep
And bear the strains of such a grand refrain
To bear my soul of Thank Yous she is due 


A man implores the aid of a special messenger to carry a blessing to his love in this English sonnet. This sonnet employees flourishes of Word Wizardry. The first half of the sonnet describes the messenger. The second half of the sonnet deals with the message. 

Amor was (and is) a lot of fun. She had a lot of problems, though. Our lifestyles were very different. Most of her problems came from her perception. She needed money and she had a low self esteem. I introduced Amor to my world. A world free of money. A world where everyone wanted to meet her. A world where she was treated special. I and those around me, taught her to put aside her focus on money. Do not give her need more energy than it deserves. With this little insight Amor was able to resolve a lot of her debts. Another big problem was, she had low self confidence. We needed to turn her "can'ts" into "cans". We had a great start because the new world she was now dancing in was one of possibilities. These possibilities put it in her mind that she could be a nursing assistant (CNA). It was a rough and challenging road. Not only did Amor graduate, she encouraged two of her classmates, who were going to drop out, on and complete the course. Proof that we can. It was a real joy to open a world to someone who brought me so much happiness. As proof that I was doing good, Amor got even more beautiful.

We live in a world of positives and negatives. They are all around us all of the time. They are spices of life. There is a certain belief system, that states that one will not exist without the other. In other words: there can be no good without evil. It is up to us though. Positives and negatives are all around us. Both fall on us. But, positives tend to attract more positives and negative tend to attract more negatives. Both live and get stronger on energies. We provide some (if not all) of that energy. The choice is ours. Do we want our world to be positive? It may rain negatives on us through no fault of our own. It is up to us to set our world back to the positive level that we prefer. (The storm can also be positive.) The choice is ours. Happiness begins here. We can be the light for ourselves as well as for other. We are that special. This is our time. This is our choice, so Enjoy.

The top 5 countries in the world with the most currently active cell phones are: China: 1.2 billion phones; India: 904 million phones; U.S. 327 million phones; Brazil: 276 million phones; and Russia: 256 million phones. So many phones just to say hi to someone. The folks at genuinejerks have discovered even the simple "hi" has become complicated.

The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.

  2. Positive can exist without negative but you wouldn't know what positive is without negative existing. So you need both, so you never take for granted the positive.

    How often one has to sacrifice for a loved one. It seemed trivial but the big picture is troubling. Creating ways and means to clear off debts can be most frustrating!

  5. I agree with Patt Hatt. We need both. And sometimes it isn't easy to recognise which is which. We have all come across it - things which look like a disaster which turn out well, and the opposite.

  6. As Ive grown older, Ive learned to be more possitive. I have also learned that happiness and love is bigger than money.

  7. Positive and negative energy work together. It's much like dark and light we need both for balance and to appreciate light you must know dark. With that being said if the negative energy is causing emotional distress one needs to find a way to sever the negative cable so they can be charged with positive energy flowing through them and around them.

    A lovely poem...These two lines speak volumes to me...

    Pray do not soil the sweetness of her sleep
    With rains intending to bring any pain

    1. Here is another interesting insight: if one knows how, one can find positive in negative and visa versa. I learned this at Chevron.
      Thank you for the nice praise

    2. One only needs to look deeper to understand the different forces, sometimes an equitable solution can be found to create new energy, maybe a third source of natural light energy.

  8. We all often say, on the positive side, then on the negative side - weighing up the two.

  9. Quite a wonderful post, beginning with your poem that had such great 'fall' and 'gravity' to me that I enjoyed reciting it in my mind's voice. Not one syllable lacking or out of place. Thanks for the effort you share, M

  10. Oh yes, I'm totally with you, good and positive seeks good and positive. And it is possible to direct those, whose first knee jerk reaction is to the other side, if they're willing......
