Why seek shelter? (Poem-A-Day 9)

RainingFor today’s prompt, write a shelter poem. Shelter might be a structure like a house, apartment, or hotel. Shelter could be a tent or cardboard box. Shelter could be an umbrella, overpass, cave, or car. Shelter could be a state of mind, part of a money laundering scheme, or any number of interpretations.


Why seek shelter?

A gorgeous woman once told me she’d never seen anyone walk as slowly in the rain. I took this as a compliment. Why seek shelter from a steady spring shower? The drops on my skin enhance perception of the wind. The new leaves pop and the pavement sizzles. The only part I don’t like is when my glasses fog.

I’ve spend most of my life dry and warm why not enjoy the wet chill while I still can?
