 The Last Love Poem


If this were the last love poem ever written

it would be for you, my love

and the rain…


falling softly on the roses


I fell too

for your eyes,

 pools of liquid moonlight

and your kisses,

whispering of rainbows forevermore


Yes, if this were the last love poem ever written

it would be for you…


and the rain

i like this...reminds me of the Lovin'
Spoonful..."you and me and rain on the roof, caught up in a summer shower, drying while it soaks the flowers"

a tribute to both...isn't it interesting...most people complain about the rain, and yet...there seems to be more romance during showers.
nicely laid out on the page, Julie

Thanks so much Jacob :) Julie


So simple yet so beautiful. When I read the title, I didn't know what the poem would be about, but as I read, I couldn't help but be swept away by your wonderful words. I love how the title tricks the reader into thinking it's quite literally your last love poem (but I knew that couldn't be so) but the piece itself builds on that in an unexpected way. I also like the subtle symbolism in how the falling rain represents the beauty of falling in love. Lovely work!

This is a romantic tangle of imagery that feels like it's tumbling & dripping along thru the revelations. When I read the title, quite honestly, I was wondering what ambitious statement this might be? I mean, the set-up is such that we expect something very "TA!DA!" But then this playful sensuous scrambled little ditty spills out & makes much more sense than any high-minded love pronouncement could be! You help teach me about being purposefully inadvertent.

What comes after the rain...? I suppose nothing, nothing but the echo of a ghost of love... Liquidly penned...

It was so pleasing to read. I liked the sentence If this were the last love poem ever written it would be for you and the rain.

Aloha Julie, so beautifully romantic. I love the way you fused the mood with rain. Something magical about that. Izzy

Beautiful and sincere.
We dream of everlasting love and hope to enjoy it forever... yet we never know when it might go away.
So we make the best and know with each storm a rainbow is promised.
Write each poem in dedication to who and what you love as though it may be your last...... and pray for rain.

Huggs... TRACE.
