Walking in the Rain

Walking in the Rain
Sharing an umbrella
A chance to get closer
And cling to each other
Without attracting the
Unwanted attention
And comments from
The city’s idle passers by
Whose furtive glances
Can spoil all chances
Of enjoying some quiet
Moments of togetherness and fun

    Brilliant and beautiful, rich with the frustration and furtiveness of lovers desperate to find quiet and privacy in a noisy and intrusive cityscape. (Report) Reply

    How lovely. You and your close friend
    are in tune with the raindrops.
    This is enchanting, Sandra.

    Warm wishes,

    Very nicely presented. This could actually be an extension of a haiku I read with the picture of two huddled under an umbrella. (Report) Reply

    Probably those furtive glance-casting others are envying your closeness..wishing they could share an umbrella with somebody..wonderful little synopsis of part of one day out of a life..(smile) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
