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.
