Flood Watch – Mark Roberts

Up the hill,
safe on a concrete path.
But the rain continues &
I almost lose my footing
in a flash flood.
You arrive for dinner
through swirling
angry water.
On the roof, after desert,
we watch the flood waters rise.
Safe here – the highest point in Newtown.
On the latest news report
we hear that the bridge is out.
You may have to stay here for days.
