Cherita 2

In case you’re worried, the river hasn’t flooded this high.


Rain fell in torrents,

all night

the river rose,

this morning

water laps

the sill.

  1. We have been flooded, not in this house. We lived in house where our drive ran down hill. A mile away they were fitting storm drains when we had a “once in a hundred years” rain storm with hail stones! Our house and two others were flooded , the water was up to our knees in the down stairs. That was 38 yrs ago and I still remember ever minute of it. ..times ticking… As I said we moved! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ
