come sit with me dear friend


“They I said it wouldn’t happen again,

this flooding”

a sight not to be seen for another __ years.

“My ears filling with expert voices

trapping the scurrying feelings

insecting in the inescaping

infecting the elucidating”

nourishing the swell

between us –

your eyes telling me

under the indiscriminate trees.

Which are as beautiful within the flood as without.

smiling in the sudden illumination…

      Thanks so much Jen! I took that photo in the last flood, 2011 and have always wanted to write about it. The really great thing is that they are fishing…was going to incorporate that somehow but then changed my mind. Maybe there will be a part two 🙂

          It is a river nearby that flooded a few years ago…many opportunities for lovely photos. I’ve always loved this one, there’s so much in it and I’m so glad others appreciate it! Thank you for visiting.
