Falling

#Writephoto #Cascade

From out of the clouds they come

a torrent of aqueous creatures

lunging towards the destination they

long to be at, following each other

in a race to be the first in the

navy blue waters

going over the edge

I.

The creator dropped his tool again

Turning the clouds a different shade of blue

The Angels sighed – and then

They cried – and their tears

Turned towards the earth below

II.

The raindrops raced to reach the ground

some landed on the ragged rocks

some landed on fragrant fruits

whilst others joined their pals

in a race down the river

III

Rapidly rolling raindrops

Rotating , turning and foaming in

Revolving and lifting formations

Ripping and carving curves through the

Riverbank

IV

Construction – halted

Crafty beavers, otters and water-rats alike

Carefully watch the waters move so

Creation of a new home or dam can

Commence

Delta

Salford 3rd March

The engineers who design the roads

have really outdone themselves this time

in the middle of the road, the raindrops fall,

nestling in sunken tarmac pools – they look like a map of

great lakes….

Stair rods

#stairrods #rain #weather #clouds

The heavens opened

Over the locals playing in the street

Raindrops coming down in

Rapid columns onto the ground

Each one falling quicker than the last

Navigating their way like a river

Towards the reservoirs via the drains and tunnels
