Floodwaters

He drove out earlier to see
The river high, near flooding;
It’s rained for days, and life has been
A constant, aching thudding

He knows the spring will come one day,
The flowers will be blooming;
But he feels something more is wrong
That some disaster’s looming

The rain, it messes with his head,
Distorting all his thinking:
As floodwaters come o’er the banks
And have his spirit
Sinking

3 Thoughts to “Floodwaters

  1. I am very lucky. Where I live in England is only 100 yards from the sea ~ and all waters eventually empty into the sea. Rain and wind ~ wnd and rain,but no flooding.
