The Water

And then the water raged in
In through the door
Consuming all in its path
It made short work of furniture and chairs
Swam around tables and stairs
And she just stood there
Aghast in the silence
Praying for an end to the storm
But no words came
Only a soft entreaty
For a better day
A day to renew
To make it all better
And the clouds split
And the sun shone the sky down
Down onto the ground
Reflecting itself back up
In the oceans beneath it
