Winter Sunset

.

Winter sunset becomes
High water slowly flowing.

Trees weary with waiting
Call darkness from memory.

Thoughts, too loud,
Disturb Blue Heron.
She flies away,
Away from me,
Away from color.

Night grows outward
From dreaming roots.

After three days and four nights of heavy downpours, there is a pause in the rain. All the rain softened an already soft spot in the porch floor, which I fell through. But Heroic Mighty Old Swamp Lady, I hobbled in for my camera, and hobbled down to see how high the river had gotten, so far. More water from upstream will arrive soon. The predictions say that Christmas, tomorrow, will be sunny. How convenient is that?
