~ Synopsis ~
I had been searching for love my whole life. It took the opening up of the world via technology for me to find my soulmate. Once I laid eyes on her, at the arrivals gate, I knew I was never going to let her go. The following is a collection of poems I wrote to my angel, from our first meeting up until our wedding day. I was working crazy hours as a chef and I had a long commute. I chose my commuting time to pen her a poem each day. These poems speak of our life, our challenges and our growth together…in every aspect they speak of our love. May this book give someone the courage to let their special someone know how much they care for them and how much they mean to them. Saying I love you is a gift you can give many times a day.
~ Review ~
I was worried about reading poetry in e-book form. Would the formatting work? Would it be too easy to flip through pages and not reflect upon the work? But the story behind Poetry of Love: The Engagement Year intrigued me. Don’t we all want a man to fall in love with us and write us a poem every day? There’s a short introduction with the background, but I would have liked (or perhaps I should save loved) more information. How did they initially meet? How did the second meeting come about? I’m left with lots of questions.
The poetry itself is easy to read. A sort of beginner’s guide to love poetry if you will. It won’t take you long to read through these love ‘letters’. There’s not a whole lot of struggle to the love in these poems. Probably because it’s the engagement year. Maybe we should convince the writer to give us some poems about married life and its struggles?
I recommend this book to readers who are just starting their journey in poetry or love for that matter. Grab a cup of tea and force yourself to slow down and absorb the love the writer portrays.
