Majid Naficy: Under One Umbrella


The geese do not fit in one pond
The seagulls on one lookout
Nor you and I under one umbrella.

.

And yet, it rains equally
Over raspberry bushes,
Anis weed and poison oak,
Over the waveless bay,
The bike path, and our words.

.

Let us close this umbrella
And skip in the rain.
Perhaps it will wash us
And bring our hearts
Closer together.
