Flooded city

Date Written: October 11, 2017

City was dry and waited for showers 

As gift from sky to empower its bowers 

Gasped for tears

Shedding all fears

But sudden storm soaked its wizened face

With strangled breath it lost its grace

Rain sponged away its dryness 

Tangled streets with muddy clumsiness 

Ending in flood

City now cried and felt sky squeezed out entire water
