Poem: The Appearance of Disaster

The Appearance of Disaster

The rain has fallen for days, melting the snow.
The world has turned to mud.
Creeks overflow. Fields flood.
A disaster, preparing the world for winter.

About this poem

Sometimes, when things go bad, we are being prepared for something better.

Or at least that is how it has happened to me.


PS: It is raining here. The snow is melting. The fields are flooding. Some days you don’t have to look far for inspiration.


  1. It’s been so long since we have had rain and I would welcome it.
    A nice, sunny morning here and the week ahead brings more sunshine.
    I always welcome sunshine!
