Dazzle With The Light to Guys Drink Coffee For The First Time 
A lover is dazzled by his desire 
Two guys are dazzled by a cup of coffee 



Dazzle With The Light (English sonnet) 

Please come my love let’s dazzle with the light
The stardust cast this moment in our view
To see the Joys of lovers’ hearts will do
When splendors of impassioned dreams ignite
-
Let’s sail away and bid this world adieu
A rainbow waits to guide us in our flight
Let’s see what kisses’ visions can incite
When timeless moments made our souls pursue
-
Around us every breath is standing still
As whispers of enchanted wishes stray
-
Each wonder waits the hope of hidden thrill
As in our arms surrender slips away
-
Forever’s dance awaits us to fulfill
Please come my love and let our magic play 


A lover invites his desire to incite a wonder in this English sonnet.  As most sonnets of this type, this one is divided into two parts. In the first part a lover describes a wonder. In the second part the lover alludes to this wonder waiting. The nature of the couplets adds a sense of quickening. To neatly tie this sonnet together, it starts and ends with "Please come my love..." 

A little game Arlene and I liked to play every once in a long while was "The First Meeting". Arlene would choose a place and a setting where I would meet a girl (Arlene). I would have to win this girl over. One time Arlene chose a Caribbean lounge south of Market Street in the financial district. I pulled a 12 hour shift, so I went there directly from work. When I got there I scouted around. Arlene wasn't there, so I sat at the bar and ordered a drink. After a time in walks these three gorgeous women. One of them was Arlene. There were these two guys that I struck up a conversation with, while I was waiting. I asked them if they'd like to meet a girl. After they agreed, I told them to follow my lead. While one guy was getting a table, the other guy and I went to introduced ourselves to the ladies. After introducing ourselves, I said it was more than a coincidence that three lovely ladies should find three lonely guys and a table. Initially the girls sat together, but as the evening, the drinks, the hors d'oeuvres and the charm wore on the sweet ladies took to us guys and I found myself with Arlene. We guys must have been pretty good, because the ladies became a little touchy-feely. As one thing led to another we guys and gals found ourselves in each other's arms. It was then I confessed that Arlene and I were married. It was then I found out that it was more than a coincidence that three lovely ladies should find three lonely guys. It turned out that the two girls were Arlene's coworkers. The guys were their husband and boyfriend. After a good laugh, we raise our glasses up to a great night.

A little fantasy every now and again is a good thing. (As long as we don't entirely lose touch with reality and we don't get carried away.) We are never to old for make believe, to escape. To be a kid once more. In fact it is good for us. It has been proven that settings our mind free can relieve stress, improve brain function, stimulate the mind, boost creativity and keep us feeling young and energetic (per Lawrence Robinson, Melinda Smith, M.A., Jeanne Segal, Ph.D. and Jennifer Shubin). It can be as simple as losing ourselves in a book or as complicated as becoming someone else in a foreign land. The possibilities are endless and we deserve the possibilities.We deserve to appreciate the world all around us and within. So, open up. Let ourselves free and Enjoy.

Not enough excitement - Maybe some coffee will help 


The amount of caffeine in coffee depends on the type of beans, how they were roasted, and how the coffee was brewed. Typically, a small 8-ounce cup of coffee has between 65 milligrams of caffeine if it’s instant and 115 milligrams if it’s drip brewed.The effects of caffeine on one who has never had it is explored by Zack Evans and  Justin Tan, of BuzzFeed Video. 
Enjoy your coffee. "Guys Drink Coffee For The First Time"

  6. I really enjoyed sipping your poem and absolutely loved the note about the first meetings reenactments. My husband and I reenact our first date every year, at least once... often thrice. It is always glorious d(and completely different from the first time, lol). We always look forward to it. Your poem and note touched me even deeper because our next first date is almost here. :-)
