Morning rain

pouring over drains


overflowing weirs.

Rivers risen,


heading for places

no river should be.

We could see roads

but brown water


fills houses

rushes, hisses.

Morning rain,

Warnings reign.

Please water,





For my friends and their families in Southern Alberta suffering from the massive flooding throughout the region.  May people, pets, and possesssions be reunited without damage.  May insurance cover the rebuilding!  May rebuilding be prompt.

Summer is dripping
and pooling in puddles of
liquid sunshine

Heavenly percussion

is punctuating

piano melodies

rising up stairs to

the rhythm of rain.
