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.

    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.

  • Patti Masterman (9/5/2009 11:20:00 AM)

    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)

    Whose furtive glances
    Can spoil all chances
    Aha....i dont' care either those furtive glances of passersby
    so long as i enjoy his company in my umbrella.This is cute.

  • James T. Adair (9/4/2009 2:20:00 PM)

    Is it raining cats and dogs yet? ?
    This was a sweet poem....really sweet!
    I can't help but think, that's a lucky man to share an umbrella with you.
    If we're all lucky in life we'll have that happen someday...sharing simple things with someone caring and kind.

    Ben Geiske sent me a note about an umbrella. 'What a beautiful word, umbrella. A shade to be opened. However, in your case Sandra, it is a shade to be shut for a sprinkling of romance.
    Lovely poem. 10 Karin
