Flood - Poem by Frankie Wills

Droplets drum on the rooftops
Silver beads bounce
Boots splash through puddles
Thunder booms overhead

Lightning flashes
Like a snake’s tongue
Set the sky alight

A symphony of sounds
Pitter – patter
Drip – drop
Splish – splash

Waterfalls spill over
Like champagne from a bottle
Rivers rage
White churning rapids

Wells overflow
Pipes burst
Taps gush
Showers spray

Water floods
Down from the heavens
While children dance
Spinning in the deluge

Cries of delight
Mix with rolling thunder
The drought is over
Water is flooding

Flooding down
From the heavens
Turning dry – yellow grass
To lush – green fields

Dry – cracked skin
Replenished – renewed
A doomed earth
Saved – born anew

The river beds are full
The waterfalls flow
The thunder booms
The lightning flashes

Water floods
Like champagne
We are free
Alive – again.
