Rainbow Love

My love
Let my gift be
A rainbow of love

Wild lavender violets
From deep dark woods
Indigo skies
Blue eyes
Sometimes green
Emerald like yours
Depending on mood or weather
Yellow fields of canola
In golden summer afternoons
Orange tiger lilies
Bowing in the breeze
And sunsets bathed in scarlet hues

A rainbow of love
My love

a kaleidoscope of emotion expressed with succinct imagery. I would not change a thing. The only thing I question is making something so seemingly intimate public... just me, I guess, but PDAs turn me off.

The kaleidoscope effect, exactly. Strange that you would write a love poem at Halloween?

Well, I for one, like your work Regis. I'm kinda nervous about posting anything from here on out though. Hope you're good friends with Lena, cause she certainly shredded your poem.

I’ve always considered you to be one of the more accomplished poets here on the Den. I want to continue to grow and learn, but I'm afraid my skin is too thin to stand up to that kind of a scathing review.

Keep up the good work, you can't please everyone.

Thanks Dick

Dear Regis,

I loved this--a little different from your usualy prose--more free style and exquisitely expressed.

All the best,

Reviewed by Lena Kovadlo 10/28/2011
The idea of the poem is great and the poem is good but I think you can make it even better with some editing.

I would start the poem with "Wild lavender violets" and end it with "And sunsets bathed in scarlet hues". The lines before the big stanza and after it don't do anything for the poem. They just seem to take up space. You can have those lines in the description or in a different font before the poem. Something like... My love. Let my gift be a rainbow of love.

I am not a fan of the line "Depending on mood or weather". It is not poetic really. And it sounds weak compared to your last line "And sunsets bathed in scarlet hues". “Blue eyes”, “Sometimes green”, and “Emerald like yours” don’t stand out either.

"And sunsets bathed in scarlet hues" is actually my most favorite line in the poem and I think it is the best one. I think all your lines in the poem should top this one. That would make the poem unforgettable and that much more beautiful.

Towards the end of your poem you write… "Orange tiger lilies bowing in the breeze" and "Sunsets bathed in scarlet hues". In these two lines you mention an object/thing (orange tiger lilies, sunsets) and attach an action verb after it (bowing, bathed). Why aren't you doing the same thing with the other lines in the poem? If you do that with the other lines in the poem, the poem will become that much better. It will instantly connect with the heart in a way it doesn’t right now. And the flow will be smoother too as it is not 100% smooth right now. I am not saying every line must have an action verb but if you are including an object/thing in your poem (like wild lavender violets, indigo skies, yellow fields of canola, etc.) then have it do something… like what you did with the sunsets and the orange tiger lilies. Hope you understand what I am trying to say here.

Well, I hope I have been of some help to you Regis. Let me know your thoughts on what I’ve shared with you regarding this poem.

Thanks for sharing and please keep on writing!!!!!

Forever your fan,
