Vows made and witnessed
You take her hand and walk outside –
A door which opens into rain and dazzle.
“Sunshower”, you murmur, and catch her eye.
Your private joke.
After the feasting,
The food shared tenderly, the wine
Sipped, not gulped –
You are dizzy-drunk already without its help –
A masked ball.
At the stroke of midnight
All masks are dropped.
Garments, no longer needed, now lie empty:
Fur is sufficient
As you run together in the moonlight.
An innocence reclaimed.
Notes: The title should explain this. Or google ‘sunshower’…
