When Will She See to Best Futbol Celebrations 
A lover wants a girl to see he is the one for her 
A soccer star wants everyone to see he is the best 


When Will She See (English sonnet) 

When will she see just how deeply I care
Here in the wings and waiting for my turn
Each heartbeat reminds me how much I yearn
Not certain if she is even aware
-
Who started this fire in which I now burn
Is there some dream which we forgot to share
Lost moments in silence we didn’t spare
Lost words in kisses we didn’t discern
-
She is now the purpose for each new day
Her name now brings enchantment to a breeze
Each flower her reminder brings to me
-
Surely love will not let me die this way
Even a hopeless soul has thoughts as these
Each heartbeat a wonder when will she see


The mind of a lost forlorn lover is the subject of this English sonnet. As most English sonnet, this one is divided into two parts. The quatrains address what is going on. The triplet take advantage of one less line to give a sense of urgency, as the lover pleads relief. This is also an acrostic poem. To heighten the madness the first and last words of the sonnet are the title and theme.

Not an unfamiliar theme. We have a guy, call him Barry. He has no problem talking to folks of the opposite sex. Then one day he runs into her: we'll call her Claire. All of the sudden the rules have changed. Barry has a hard time talking to her. He feels uncomfortable around her. He finds himself thinking of her, dreaming of her. She seems to be everywhere. The easiest thing would be to try to talk to her. Ask her out or something. But for some reason, Barry couldn't. Into the picture comes Arlene (the Cosmopolitan Magazine girl). Barry approached Arlene to help him out. She told him that surely Claire most see something is going on. She must see that he is treating her different than other women. It was Arlene's theory that Claire felt what was going on. She was waiting on Barry to making the first move. Arlene was confident once the first move was made, together Claire and Barry would overcome the other obstacles. Arlene suggested Barry take a deep breath and buy some flowers. Almost a week later Arlene gets this box of candy and a note that said, "Thank you. Barry."

So what was going on? We have one creature who was out of his environment. We have another creature with certain expectations. The first creature was asked to try to lay a little fear aside, make some commitment and venture forth (take a chance). This play must have occurred countless times, or it would not make the pages of a magazine for other creatures to enjoy. Endless stories, boundless combinations, yet we say we've heard them all before. We take pride in being unique individuals (and we truly are) and yet it seems we are engaged in a set play. A play that is moving forward. How can this all be? A set play that is changing, Endless possibilities that make magazine and that computer analogs are busy predicting. Unique individuals playing characters we have seen before. Limited endlessness. How can this all be? (I ask again.) We are discovering things faster. The planets are getting closer within our reach. What was impossible is now a toy. Life is a wonder. Here we are, in the center of it all. Be a part of it and Enjoy.


Here's another story we are familiar with: Holiday Park "I'm Waiting" 

We are all familiar with soccer - Or are we 


Soccer developed in London’s famed Newgate Prison in the early 1800s. Prisoners who had their hands cut off for crimes of theft came up with a sport that used only the feet. The game spread from there. If we thought that was crazy just watch the victory celebrations by Anwar Jibawi. 
Who is Anwar Jibawi? He is a famed soccer star, in his own mind. "Best Futbol (Soccer) Celebrations | Anwar Jibawi"

  3. Isn't it amazing how often we can be confident - about things which don't matter. And how quickly that confidence can slip away.
    Love that Arlene's assistance/encouragement was recognised.

  8. We've all been there, in a situation of awkwardness. Making a move, taking chances, getting out of our comfort zone. Cause and effect. And if things didn't work out, we lived to see another day. Love is everything. Wonderful poem indeed, well done.

    Those football celebrations are hilarious. Imagine if it all happened in real life. Greetings!

  12. She told him that surely Claire most see something is going on.
    She must see that he is treating her different than other women.

    A faint heart certainly will not win a fair lady! How true it is Martin!

  14. I always enjoy your reflections as much as the poems. When I watch movies, it always irks me when people go through agonies because they dont know how to just say the words that would make things possible..............I guess the movie would end very quickly if they did. But I am always relieved when they finally figure it out by the end. LOL.

      Maybe that frustration/relief is the movie (just saying).
