This poem is by India Turner

After the Flood

It is 4 times wider
than it should be.
It is 6 times higher
than it should be.
and is clearly,
much scarier
than I thought it
would ever be.
Our little creek,
is now a raging river.
Our stream,
looks like something,
I could whitewater raft down.
My eyes glaze over,
and I picture a blue,
six seater raft,
with me inside.
I can just imagine
being bumped
into the perilous
churning water,
that used to be our innocent creek
