Written for: dVerse Poet’s Pub: Drought Or Deluge? (posted by Walt)
We’re writing one condition or the other. Give us a drought poem (writer’s block would qualify). Or failing that, write the damage of an over-abundance of water/rain (a rain of emotions does nicely here as well), heat, etc… What’s your experience of too much of a thing, good, bad or otherwise? What have you seen or read? Let your poems reflect some semblance of that! As long as you let the words flow, you’ll never run out!
Sandy started as a hurricane,
gathered speed, gained force,and became
deluge–flooding streets, pushing
ocean water over
walls, buildings, houses–
like my friends
