10-Line Tuesday

May 15, 2012

what will you do when it rains, they asked

Because people want to save you from things
discomforts, disasters
what they imagine are the avoidable risks
but that morning in the drizzle
I set out anyway
and as I rode, those sweet drops
took down down the spring blossoms
like confetti,  like a quiet little parade
like a blessing
just for me.
