The Recipe

Take four raindrops
One large and heavy
That fell in our direction
At such a pace last Autumn,
One that appeared from nowhere
On a summer’s day.
One that missed you completely
But encompassed within
the colour of the storm.
One that is not yet
ready to come
and along it’s entire journey
struggles to return skyward
and fails.
Take two colours
of the rainbow.
Choose carefully.
Blue for its coolness.
Nurture it.
Red for its passion.
Hold it still.
Take the early morning dew.
Be humble before it.
Add a feather of a dove
That has travelled far.
Add one more object of beauty,
that is your choice alone.
Store the mixture for time to learn.
Let her drink.
And if you believe
She will love.
