"Rain Dance"

rain dancing on a hot July evening       
just before sunset the sky opened       
tinsel streaks sparkling       
we dashed outside with devilish grins        
heads thrown back in supplication       
arms akimbo       
knees bent like chickens’ legs      
an ancient dance of guffaws and belly laughs        
twirling in the rain with mouths open     
hearts wide
