A Solitary Kiss

A long time friend and I
Would take occasional quiet walks
Through the woods yonder

One day in the midst of it all
A warm summer rain fell on us
Through tall trees and green leaves

Nowhere to go but wet
Shirts soaked, we look at each other
And laugh with the breeze

Our eyes lock together
Suddenly she asks
“Will you kiss me?”

We embrace and we kiss
Feeling the heat through our shirts
Longingly and deeply we kiss

Our universes line up
The trees, rain, summer, us
All as one

Then the rain stops
Seeing galaxies in our eyes
We separate yet entwine our hands

We walk on out
To the edge of the woods
And part ways into separate lives

Now and then we’d see each other
Her eyes would sparkle
And a wry smile play on her lips

Years later after I found out
She’d met an untimely death
I’d still walk the woods

And hear the breeze
Softly whispering…
“Will you kiss me?”
