Soaked Valentine

Having fallen straight through the night
the rain stands up even straighter now
inside the trees and plants so everything
looks plumper prouder flecked
with splashes of morning light
even the harbor ponders deeper
considering how deeply the rain entered
turning the bodies of the clouds
into the clouds of our bodies
drifting by in boats and sails
like a longing satisfied
even though we know
it will all be taken back from us
drop by bloody drop
