Rain or Shine

Rain or shine,

Unlatch and hold,

Unfurl the sheltering vinyl

against the angry drops of the storm, or

the indifferent, burn of the sun.

A membrane haven above the Crown.

Human ingenuity of a mobile refuge;

Vulnerable and strong.

Protecting against Nature’s gentler extremes.


No invention yet birthed;

by necessity or inventiveness,

To protect, beneath the sheltering skein;

The temperamental, struggling Nature

In the furrowed Crown, or perspired palm,

That grips the latched rod

through Rain or Shine.
