Lakes, Pools and a Clash of Titans

We topped 10 inches of rain.
The water is the highest in the pond
in 100 years, luckily
we are up 20 feet above the water, some
neighbors may not be so lucky.

Water and wind pummeled all day
yesterday.

Ice this morning turned into lakes,
pools formed where none existed before.

Moss sprouted coral and tree flowers bloomed.

The land scarred by the movement of water through
the landscape as if the gods had their way with us.
Only one patient soul, faithful companion, splashed
happily in the many pools and waited for his
human companion to hurry up along this nature
play.

Dreaming of Neptune…

    Glad your home is okay. Pretty crazy water stuff going on. Maybe it is time to do a fire dance to steam some of it away. I know the pooches would be disappointed if their pools went away, but really !
    Love Neptune's dream…
    Happy Tuesday !
