Poetry Thursday (late)

Beth has inspired me to participate in Poetry Thursday, even if only this once. Fortunately, my "day" doesn't end until my eyes meet their lids. So this still counts. :)

In this time
Three floods
Could have covered earth
From pole to pole

Could have drowned me over
Swept my city
Strewing taxicabs
To your mountaintops

Through leafy vines
Smothered with water
Whisked past continental divides
Burying history

No bird, no dove,
No olive leaf
(And no peace treaty)
Just waiting, waiting for the sun.

Uh... uh... uh... oh... wow.

I'm glad I encouraged you to try this, because it's brilliant.
