having lived through a couple floods i will def attest to that...pretty much wiped out my gramma's house...
I wondered if anyone would take on the destructive nature of rivers. I like your haiku--meaning with so few words. Even quiet seeping floods are pretty scary.
Yes, that is true! But this year it doesn't seem there is much of this. The small stream behind my house has totally dried up in the drought. I wonder where the wildlife drinks now.
Oh yes, it does indeed ~ Great take ~
Very true - literally and figuratively! sandie
Flood and fireare creatures of terrorwhich must be handledgingerly.
Cool and insightfull Helen...Thanks
Yes, they are beautiful, until they flood our homes. So true.
Short and profound.
I think bush fires are scarier than floods.Although it's scary when you are cut off by the waters as well.
Water may nourish us but it holds so much destructive power. Very nicely done!
A concise piece that says so much, Helen. Nice.Pamela
Lots of flooding going on these days. Great take.
I like your reference to the line by Shakespeare. Yes, floods can be dangerous. But there is always a rainbow after the rain :)
Oh so true, you made me laugh out loud! I've missed visiting--sometimes life munches up too much of my time...tried to respond to the river prompt and just couldn't do it in time.
Now, isn't that the truth! You can't control too much water, you can only do your best to clean up afterward.Kathy M.
How I can relate to this. we have an eternal problem here with people trying to change the course of our rivers mainly so they can build their mansions. The results are massive flooding and people choosing to remain ignorant and stubborn. They cut into the sides of the mountains and rain forests too which adds to our dilemma
ain't that the truth! - a gorgeous pic, and the whole reminds me of floodplains near where i grew up, every spring come snowmelt...
Your image of Hell is wrong.
