After the Rains

After the Rains

A Poem by Dave Brown
"

like champagne

"

The sun came out this morning

After nights of rain

Reminding me how good it feels

Much like great champagne

 

And on a red rose I saw

Tiny spots of dew

And in those spots, there were

Reflections of just you

 

In one drop your eyes

In another, your lips were near

And as I crouched closer still

Your gentle voice to hear

 

Some would pluck these pedals

And throw them one by one

But I would not treat you so

Might that we become undone

really like the last line...and the allegory works so well....the rain, listening, the rain, glistening, in the morning gardening for love...Roses bloom...the petals meld.

Hate to say it, but a bit more rain wouldn't hurt

When I'm seriously in love, I see my lady in everything. This was a great reminder of that.

You're lucky! Doesn't happen often! Enjoy 🤗
This is one of your strongest poems in the use of rhyme & rhythm & romantic sentiments! Wow! You really topped yourself with this one! Really enjoyed your message & strongly felt how it might be at every step of the discovery process. Love how you paint this scene as slowly unfolding (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
