GIRL WALKING




Click HERE for MAGPIE info


GIRL WALKING

She walking, eyes full of tears
knows not where she go
nor seem to care
any more

as that river, overflowed with 
melting mountain snow-ice,
flood and current carried 
house away

like nicely appointed two-storied 
scow, she watched floating 
downstream, around bend,
her home

possessions, all destroyed. her bike,
computer, photos and books
everything she liked
forever gone

Where now to go, run, hide, 
bide time to think, start at the end
and end at begin
again

as little one walks, certain that
water rise no higher
than her boot tops.

  4. Tragic, but it could be worse. If she still has people in her life, that truly makes up for all. People, poetry and music.

  5. Upside down arrangement.

    Flood on one side, drought on the other side.

  10. Love how swish swish makes it open to interpretation - whether she started all over again with a clean slate, or whether she stomped away.
