Waterline

081514_flood

Between the tatters
and polished stone
torn and twisted
branches
wrap the sign;
gathering
the remnants
sweeping,
some words
sank below
the waterline;
folded
conversation whispers
marking,
marking time;
fragments
‘All the Pretty
Little Ponies’
of what
the storm has
left behind.
