Under the shelter

I know

we are just passing through

But I also know

our paths interlock

Sometimes we stay

under the shelter

we find amidst the rain

Sometimes we stay longer

under the shelter

even after the rain

I stayed long enough

under this shelter

If disruption was a novel sight

emerging from stillness

just as blue umbrellas

pop among the rain

then I guess

you disrupted me

But what a desirable umbrella you were

transparent, letting light in

The reason I stayed

under the shelter

was because

you were behind me

but you came

to be beside me

under the shelter

This poem is about the need to move on from what once made us warm, be it a person or a place, and continue to brace the cold elsewhere.
