A Deliberate Walk in the Rain

A Deliberate Walk in the Rain


I imagine—a deliberate walk in the rain

Holding hands, arms intertwined

The smell of fresh earth making us inhale

Deeply, slowly, and quietly

I look up at you by my side

And a little smile sits on my lips

Your hand presses mine warmly

And a gentle sigh rocks my frame

Soon we are drenched and feel cold

Two people with but a single thought

Rush home at a run…
