The Red Umbrella Hideout
It was a dark wet night...rain over head..
Sheltered us close.....an umbrella red.
Breathing moonlight ....in your silent air.
My eyelids closed ..inside your hug and care.
The fragrance of water ...intoxicating wine.
I was drunken deep... in the fruit of your vine.
Soaking showers trickled...the transcending time .
Redundant words played... a rhyming pantomime.
A kiss smelling vanilla... whispered all untold.
My face cupped inside.....your soft fingered fold.
I quenched my thirst ...in your sea ...submerged.
In the red umbrella hideout....our lips converged.
Did I catch cold in the rain? Or is it your shiver?
The ripple of your touch? A wave made me quiver.
Ardent affection .... relieved a fancy dream...
Revealed the reality.....of a love supreme.
