aros. Flooded Auchenflower

A morning walk, soggy but possible
Now, unable to get in or out
Marooned on islands of trepidation

The surge of the King Tide
forces the sea up the river 
to battle with the floodwaters coming down

Two massive forces collide
No winners here

The ads
"beautiful one day, perfect the next"
a distant memory.
