Rain

If only we could do it all again,...

       Drive down Highway 1,
                                on that day in the rain...

    Stop and have lunch at the small cafe,...
           shake off our wet jackets, eat our chowder,
                                                           warm ourselves....

    Stare out the foggy windows,...
             watching the tourists running for shelter,....
  
   I would smile more, 
       not complain that our day had been spoiled by the rain....

             Instead, I would rejoice, and be glad
                   to have spent such a fine day with you

Good morning, Carrie; Nice expression. I'm usually not one to appreciate free verse (an observation of me, not the form) but there are always exceptions and some I connect with readily... yours' is such a work. Thank you for that and the opportunity to make contact... <><
