i walk between the raindrops

by Libby H., 15

I walk between the raindrops

Underneath the paper flower sky

As each petal falls, gravity drags the stubborn raindrops down 

Down, down, down

But I weave between the drops

Twisting, twirling, and whirling to a dance that only I know the choreography to

I dance and dance and dance until the slate sky’s anger is appeased

The periwinkle sky returns

Only the clouds know my secret 

That I walk between the raindrops
