A Flower In The Rain - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

I want to fall on you like rain
upon a wildflower
Opening new reason from you
Scaring all the old bees away from
Pollinating your bed
Scaring all the fake men off who
Can only stand the sun
So it’s just me and you in the
Meadow
The rabbits in the hole
The grasses are wet and beginning to bow
The forest is damp and sleepy
And in the meadow
I bend down and kiss your petals wetly
Falling all over you
Letting your pistil slip into my mouth
Sucking off your honey,
Almost plucking you
But not going so far
Just pulling you so that you can feel
Your roots leaving
To let you almost taste
My world in the sky
So afterwards you can go down
Believing
The words on my lips
When I fall on my knees for you
A flower in the rain.

    That's quite a lovely romantic scene! So wild, uninhibited, and full of desire. The figurative language is beautiful and you carried it through to the end. Your love is like the rain on a wildflower. While i'm guessing this poem might have had an inspiration, it surely has universal appeal. (Report) Reply
