Raining on My Future

I drew my plans on the sidewalk
with... what else?
Side walk chalk.
Wth pinks and purples
I sketched my life-
plotted how our paths would cross.
I wiped my brow in
the hot summer heat,
careful not to drip
on my masterpiece.
But as soon as I'd finished
the cloud came by
and she dripped great teardrops
onto my canvas from under her
cloudy grey eyes.
And the colors swirled
and the picture changed
and I saw a new plan unfolding
in a hot summer rain.
I looked down in great satisfaction
with a knowledge inside
that this was planned
I felt your hand on my shoulder
and your lips on my neck
and I kissed you in the rain
as we stood in a puddle of
our watercolored future.
We waited for it to dry
to see what it might reveal.
And even though we couldn't make it out
it was more beautiful than I'd dreamed.
