A New Love.....

Rating: 5.0
The smouldering ashes relight,
as love kindles and nurtures
the new flames of desire.
Slowly they turn from ash grey
into a glowing ember.
Reinvigorated by a caress of feelings.
As the embers glow,
so small flames from within are lit.
Each one reaching for the sky,
as rekindled feelings flow over them like oxygen,
breathing new life.
The feeling of rebirth fills the body.
Like a phoenix rising from the flames
and so love rises from them,
in all its splendid glory.
The ashes of the past forgotten.
New life, new feelings.
Passion, desire.
A lust for new life fills the air.
Renewed vigour radiates
from a rejuvenated heart.
For all the world
to see and hear.

I like the way you presented your topic. Excellent metaphors and symbolisms. The emotions flow throughout the poem. I could sense the growing and glowing excitement of a new love. A lovely read.

Hi Chris I really liked this poem. Poems can make or break on the use of sybolism. Your symbolism is absolutely spot on. I also like the balance and rythm. Only one tiny criticism, I wonder if you could have included the 'fire'; symbolism in the title. I'm new here look me up some time ...........10 Steve
