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
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
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
