Flood is: always,

going overboard.

Not to my liking.

Let me be calm,

be at peace with me.

I pray for placid, deep water

always half inch

below the edge.

  1. I join your prayer, knowing quite well my own overflow of emotions. Hard to be calm and accepting when an actual flood causes our emotional overflow. This poem is larger than its few words. It resonates in my heart.

Thank You :)
