Comments on Dreaming

Dreaming

Mighty sot and sweet are those words my love,
Sailing through time on the back of a mouse,
With wings of magnet on a pure white dove.

From somewhere, out there in the galaxy;
Fraught with megabytes f time, on our hands;
We have come with immense expectancy.

Your smiles, cards and roses you have sent me,
In glowing emoticons and siggies;
I understood perfectly, your sweet plea. 

Our love has reached the highest spatial plan;
Two spirited hearts, meshed so very well
In cyber land, that’s where it all began. 

This dream of ours very soon will come true,
As we exit the rolling, blue meadows,
To speak, face to face, the words I love you.

 With internet crashes and weird attacks,
Waiting here on Cloud Nine been mighty long;
Come, come Jack; to Silver Sands to relax.

 Dream all you can until the morning’s wee;
Cyber love is the weirdest of all things;
Catching the real McCoy, you pay no fee. 


“Dreaming” belongs to the poetic class called Lyrical Poetry. When poets write emotional rhyming poems and their themes explore romantic feeling or strong emotions, essentially what they have created fall into the realm of lyrical poetry. Reading lyrical driven poetry, the rhythmic beat has song-like attributes.  In addition to exploring romance as the focal theme, lyrical poetry is written with stanzas of three verses, where the end rhymes have two rhymes enclosing a blank verse. This arrangement has created what is known as an “enclosed tercet” with a rhyming pattern aba; the length of each verse must be in iambic pentameter.  The poem “Dreaming” has met these fundamental requirements as for example, shown in the first two stanzas of the poem:
 
                                                                        Rhyming Pattern:
Mighty soft and sweet are those words my love,          a
Sailing through time on the back of a mouse,               b
With wings of magnet on a pure white dove.                a
 
From somewhere, out there, in the galaxy;                   c
Fraught with megabytes of time, on our hands;            d
We have come with immense expectancy.                    c
 
This rhyming pattern called rhyme scheme insists that the first verse rhymes with the third verse throughout the various stanzas of the tercet poem. A tercet poem has stanzas made up of three verses.
 
“Dreaming” is a social commentary poem made up of septet stanzas. Seven verses make a septet. The imagery in this poem, points to love being solicited on dating platforms in cyber land. The aura of finding love in space is romantically captured in the first six stanzas and last stanza being the spoiler, as the delusions of grandeur raises its ugly head on these cyber lovers so much in love.

Haiti Under Rubble from 7.0 Earthquake

Natural disasters whenever and wherever they occur impact on all of our lives. The Good Book says we are our brothers and sisters keepers lead by the Holy Spirit. Hence, we must do our part when disaster shows its ugly face. Any assistance, great or small, given from generous and loving hearts has equal weight. I'm passing on this information I received that Barbadians can go to First Caribbean Bank to donate to the Disaster Relief Fund for Haiti. The banking information is shown below:

First Caribbean Bank Account--2645374-- Cheques can be written to: HELP #2645374

My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Haiti.
