That Stormy Night

And that stormy night
when the deluge came down
without any forewarning
defying the weathermen’s insight

You stood there aghast
unsure what to do
you weren’t prepared for the rain
looking for shelter in that lonely street
all your efforts going in vain

And then I saw you
your linen drape soaked
the lips dripping water
trying to escape the downpour
standing under an oak

The single layer swathe
blending well with your dusky skin,
the moonlit skies
revealing the curves,
displaying with urgency
your sensuous verve

I was so engulfed in your allure
my subconscious mind
ignored your searching eyes
and your curious soul

It was a magical spell
an occult, a decree
I savored the moment
and treasured a lifetime memory
