Subtle lovers

Subtle Lovers
We are subtle lovers
The rain and I

I suppose that is the way
Of rainforest life

I hanker for the sun
Complain about the wet

But it exhausts me
when the sun stays too long

My brightest smile
Illuminated by low, grey clouds

Returning the wet to my brow
And warmth to my heart

We are odd
We people of the rain
