He Wonders to When You Walk Your Anxious Puppy 
A lost lover wonders in the darkness of his world 
A cute puppy wonders through the excitement of its world 


He Wonders (English sonnet) 

He wonders how his world got out of hand
What madness chased the one he loved away
That lovers have such hurtful things to say
Is something now he cannot understand
-
He wonders through his world of disarray
Was this the paradise that they had planned
Their love it seems was just a brittle strand
A fragile dream in search of its own day
-
He wonders how his world could hold such pain
And every heartbeat only promised more
There seemed no limit to a soul’s despair
-
He wonders now their world he might regain
As dreams now turn toward shadow at the door
And through his tears he sees his lover there 


Follow a lover';s despair through this English sonnet. As most sonnets pf this type this one is divided into two parts. though subtly. In the first part (the quatrains) we have a lover coming to term with a mistake. In the second half (the triplets) comes the feelings. Feelings that call to her. 

Funny how a young/new love covers up so much. Either we act differently when we meet that someone special or our eyes are a little too forgiving or a little of both. As the relationship goes on things become clearer. This happened to one of Arlene's coworkers, Mitch. How any girl could fall for Mitch was beyond Arlene and others in the office. One did though. What kind of girl would fall for Mitch? At one of Arlene's office parties we got to meet her. She seemed pretty normal. About a month after the party Mitch brings his home problems to work. One day Mitch shows up at the door with a bottle of Amaretto (Arlene's favorite drink). Arlene, the Cosmopolitan girl, had a reputation for strong  people skills.  It seems the girl had left Mitch. Arlene did nothing but tell Mitch what people at work were saying about him. That's all.A different person started showing up at work, No one knows how, but the girl found out about the changed man, After some time and investigation she was flattered and knew Mitch was the guy for her. It was rumored that it was Arlene, who informed the girl about Mitch.

There was a lot going on in the Mitch story. We have a person others talk about. We have a relationship gone sour. We have a person working on himself. Let's get one thing clear: I believe, we are who we are. It is solely up to us whether to change, or if we can change. I believe, if a coworker acts in way that is disturbing, it should be brought to their attention. I have been taught that a healthy team atmosphere is essential to a group's success. If an individual wants to be different, let them. Rejoice in it. In a relationship we have that "halfway point" and "can I live with this". The truth of the matter is: how much are willing to change (if at all) to be with that other person? I do believe some people are made for each other. (Sometimes in strange ways.) There are times and instances when change can be good for us: like don't argue with a police officer when he wants to write us a ticket, The bottom line is that it is our life. We should be allowed to be what and who we like and be as different as we like. That's what makes us wonder. So be proud of who we are and Enjoy.


How about a moody melody to go with that sonnet: Edgar Tuniyants "In the lonely night" 

Do you love puppies 


Like humans, puppies are born without teeth. However, they can't hear, see or smell, either. Puppies don't open their eyes or begin to hear until they're 1 to 2 weeks old, according to the VCA (Veterinary Centers of America), and they can't smell until about three weeks post birth. Until then, it's very important for the mini-puppies to stay close to mom and their siblings to eat and grow properly. And puppies are cute. 
Here is a cute commercial starring a puppy. "When You Walk Your Anxious Puppy // Presented By BuzzFeed & Puppy Chow"

Love comes to those who still hope although 
they’ve been disappointed,to those who still 
believe although they’ve been betrayed,
to those who still love although they’ve been 
hurt before.

  3. Yes. Though it reminds me of a joke I was told about a woman's attitude to marriage. 'Aisle, Altar, Hymn' - or I'll alter him. I didn't laugh. If someone needs to change as you say it is up to them.

    There can never be a time to get the best. Somehow there is still something missing

  11. A fabulous sonnet - beautifully rendered ... and that another-chance-at-happiness ending ~ sigh ~

    As always I enjoyed your narrative piece. I have long believed that people can sit themselves down and sort themselves out ... if they choose to. Thanks for this, Martin.

  15. I remember the sadness and endless ruminations after a love affair gone bad. That last verse is quite hopeful though. Perhaps they have both learned something and continue on more happily this time.

  16. Those are great thoughts to think about in a relationship, how far will one person go to change in order to live peacefully. We don't know what we have till it's all gone sadly as reflected in the poem. Good stuff.
