Rain in Fussen

do you recall
the evening
the rain poured
in big fat droplets
drenching us
 in the space of
a minute flat

you held my hand
and
laughing
we ran for shelter
under the eaves of an old palace

as the rain eased
we made silly poses
in the sculpture garden
creating unintended works of art
works of love’s hand

and as the rain washed over me
you washed through me

  2. Awesome poem! It has been raining so much lately, lol. As always, I love the imagery...and I immediately thing about the droplets running down the back of my neck as I run about trying to dodge them. ;)

  5. This makes me think of a couple in love running through rain on their honeymoon (or a romantic holiday) somewhere through Europe, where there are architectural beautiful buildings. Loved it!
