“Casamento da Raposa”

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.
She laughs.
Your private joke.

After the feasting,
The food shared tenderly, the wine
Sipped, not gulped –
You are dizzy-drunk already without its help –
You dance.
A masked ball.

At the stroke of midnight
All masks are dropped.
All masks.
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’…
