Would You Believe

Would you believe yesterday’s rain, and how we first heard it? Bubbling up, then falling down. So unusual, like a reversal. That’s the only reason I mention it. That’s the only reason we shot up in bed before you called it — a sudden shower. Looking out the window you swore it poured wholly for us. So sweet and so stupid, your exclusive supposal, yet not withstanding I came to my knees and lifted my hands to claim it; our secret slice of sky.

One thought on “Would You Believe

  1. Ohhhhh. This is achingly beautiful. I love the double meaning that can be found in “wholly for us,” and that claiming your own “secret slice of sky.” YES.
