Coming Together

It was your idea to take shelter here, warm and dry you said and we could have a drink until the rain stopped. So we did. It was fun. But still the rain kept falling so we played a game took turns two at a time placing one hand above, one hand below pushing each other away so we could create space for us to come together that first time. And still the rain fell so we stayed a while longer. It was fun. We didn’t notice that the others had left. We didn’t notice that the rain had stopped. It still makes us smile
