A Walk Through Rain in Winter

There’s something about the rain
in winter –
biting to the skin.
Rain denies guilt and points to the wind —
I give it a pass, after all
it is warmer than snow.

rain would be less welcome
but winter has a way of making us long
for any hint of warmth
specially from behind a door.

passing through this crossroad
I walk with steps hopeful
like the fountain that has no water
but isn’t dry.

29DD16F0-0FEC-4FF9-890F-7100EEE60259 I am prepared for colder
and a chance of warmth
is enough
for me to walk
through the rain.
