Love is often poeticized. Either from Pandora or poetry, I have found some thoughtful metaphors of love. Some of them are explicit but not pornographic. I do not seek out pornographic (or erotic) poetry because all of my sources for metaphors are public and mainstream but I often find intimate poetry that captures the reality of love. See “Wild Nights” by Emily Dickinson as an example. The lover for the subject of the poems that I resonate with is my wife, Hope. These poems remind me of my affection or her (or vice versa).
Yellow poems give me a greater sense of the human experience; they enlighten me. Enlightening poems were what originally attracted me to poetry. Poetry has an acuteness, exactness that attracts me. No misplaced words and an entire idea transmitted through a few lines. I have also found these in news stories that I will share.
Blue poems remind me of Heaven and God’s interactions with us. I cannot say which poets would profess a relationship with Jesus and which do not. I have suspicions but most of the writing that I am attracted to is like the book of Esther in the Bible: God isn’t mentioned but you must admit that he is active in the unfolding of the story.
