The Glow to Master Ken Debunks the Candle Punch
Lovers stroll toward the light
Martial art master extinguishes the lights
The Glow (English sonnet)
Another hope another dream to sow
Another chance to let a feeling go
And if we feel some pain it’s still alright
There amid these shadows rests a glow
Some flicker lost to meet its lonely night
Some chance to hold another moment tight
And if it hurts a tear will let us know
Let’s sing about the Joys which fill our day
And rainbows which have lost the need for rain
And brighter dreams have lost the need to roam
Let’s sing away the doubt which made us stray
For we have brighter reasons to explain
I love you dear so let me take you home
Amid the shadows lovers still find reasons to sing in this English sonnet. As in most English sonnets, this one is divided into two parts. The first part talks about a shadow the lovers find themselves in. The second half discusses the hope to overcome the shadow. It is a subtle nuance: The hope triads start with the conjunction "Let's" (let us). Indicating the partnership.
Here we were, Arlene and I. The saddest part of our life. Most parents may relate. Our son was off to college, in Montana. Robin was busy with her schoolwork, her friends and trying to earn some extra cash. Our family was breaking up. Gone were those trips to the zoo, the parks, the bike rides together. The dining room table was so quiet and empty. It was over. Gone were those unbelievable disco days. "The Crew" of friends Arlene and I used to dazzle with. The concerts, the dances, the parties, the life style... It was over. The "palace in the sky", Our apartment overlooking San Francisco. Two young lovers living a dream. It's all over. But we did it. We did it all. And now this. I'm sure we could have done better. But we were pretty good parents. And there was the proof. All in all it was a pretty spectacular life. The proof is there was one more wonder filled chapter to be written.
Life is what it is. Beautiful. Painful. Full of wonder. A flower unfolding its splendor for us. So much there, it is impossible to take it all in. And here we are. A vital part of the grand scheme of things. Every step we take, everything we take in, every idea we let out, changes everything forever. There it all is before us; For us. Then one day our eyesight isn't what it used to be. Our favorite ice cream parlor is closing. Our children have grown up. Our friends are dying. It's all gone. Sounds so sad. But then come the waves; The wonder of life; The changes we made; The memories. Alive. We are still alive. There is yet one more chapter to be written. Our past becomes our strength, beckoning us on. What is passed is a celebration. We did it. We lived it. See the sun rising to another day just for us? How important it is that we Enjoy.
Isn't that right Sade: Sade "Nothing Can Come Between Us"
