Flood Stage

An orange glow
outlined sunset
And now this
moonlight solace
The Susquehanna River
crested today at 41 feet
We knew from the radio
Broken trees and
flooded streets
An outline of mud and leaves
An outline of worry
that woke me
slowly
A thread of song in my head
A film of water
across my hand
