It’s So Good To Be Home

We crossed over a bridge covered in two feet of water four days ago. Now the bridge is dry and we’re sleeping in our own beds again. It’s good to finally be home.

Ode to Nature’s Cleansing

Threats of wind and rain
Bringing loved ones home
Fear of the unknown’s pain
Waiting for the ones that roam

Waiting for that one call
To share safety’s news
Praying for none to fall
And speedy rescue crews

Cleaning the grounds like a flush
Buildings and bridges go under
Water rapids flowing in a rush
Waiting out the next thunder

The press of time to beat the flood
Tender thoughts for those that left
Nexus of storms weaving walls of mud
Nature’s swear and Heaven’s list

Flood Waters in South Carolina

I just wanted to share with everyone who might look at my writing site what is going on right now. The video below was taken by yours truly today. The bridge is right near where I live. I hope everyone else is safe out there.

Memories of a long time past

All are now just memories

Experiences and dreams amassed

Gone as the mind empties

A mural of community

Of times long passed

Once a symbol of unity

Now a face recast

A building with a new face

A painting gone without a trace

Will everything be changed

When the past is rearranged?


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ode to a Playground.”

In memory of a mural I helped paint on the side of one of my high school buildings. Now gone and the building part of our town Recreation Department.
