|Summer weather- Vic & Tas hide coyly|
Has disappeared entirely beneath an unmoving, soggy, dense blanket of cloud
El Nino and La Nina fought for supremacy.
El Nino reluctantly relinquished his stranglehold
His legacy? A parched, drought devastated land.
La Nina released from her exiled land
revels petulantly in her newfound status.
Flexes her muscles,
honed and toned during years of being ignored.
|Rain bands, a soggy Summer in Victoria|
Struts her stuff
Unleashes rain, with vicious intent and deadly ferocity
inundates parched land
Alerts constant, we reel as the catastrophe unfolds
Climate change, a myth no longer
a taste of things to come.
A Drabble is a story told in 100 words. No more, no less.

A river of stones is a project started by Fiona &Kaspa to encourage people to engage with the world through writing. In 2011 we invited people to join us in writing a small stone each day during January. Get involved.
