This is the Territory of Rain

It is king here

all the waterand it is showing us who’s boss.

burst banks drowned benches drowned treesFortunately yesterday was dry, and the tide was shallow. But there’s more rain to come. For the moment at least,

all living is by negotiation

with flows and falls of water.

Not to mention, moving about. I hope you are all dry, warm and safe
