Naked in the Rain
He wandered down the lonely path, phone in hand and ready to go. This time, he would get that picture.
Soft drops dripped delicately from softer leaves onto a sodden path of brown. Autumn had covered this once green place and now winter was lurking behind the clouds.
As he passed through the clearing, the lake opened up before him. Calm and cool, but rippled by the gentle rain, dropping tears into the pool of life.
Sitting on a soaking log, he closed his eyes and imagined. This was how it started.
And soon, the music drifted through the trees, a breeze of enchantment. He could feel the change. Opening his eyes he saw her.
Tall and blonde, with perfect beauty.
She smiled at him, holding his eyes carefully in her own.
As he stood up, he gasped.
She was naked.
Before, she had always been clothed, a long dress of white. Hugging but hiding her figure.
But now her wet hair flowed over her shoulders and lay carefully on her naked breasts. Her flat, white stomach moving like a snake to the music.
And down. Her perfect legs swayed like tall grass in a summer wind.
And she danced.
In the rain.
Holding his eyes carefully in her own
She danced toward him, step by enticing step.
His phone, meant to capture this impossible sight, fell from his hand and floated to the path of brown leaves as she reached out to him.
Almost without moving, she unbuttoned his shirt, which fell away unbidden. The fresh rain, falling on his bare chest was like shards of electricity, waking up his soul.
Again, with barely a wave of her hand, she removed his trousers and then took his hand. Her touch, like ice, tingled every nerve.
As her eyes held his, carefully in her own.
He stepped forward, somehow leaving behind his old grey shoes.
And she smiled, sending suns crashing through his world and flames soaring in his mind. The world changed and he saw through her eyes, the beauty and the magic of untold hidden realms.
And he danced, with her, naked in the rain, as they moved together, united in love.
And they danced into the lake, slowly submerging, bodies touching as the water took them.
And they kissed an eternal kiss that meant forever love.
And the world changed.
“Come and wash away the pain, step into the blessed rain
give a helping hand to fate
the rain will make you whole.”
