A Deluge or Predilection

Ran; they were running up the hill. Sea was rising to level unseen I sat in my old shabby car, All terrified of what it could be. I floated in it and was stuck among branches. The water receded, I was saved, might be. My eyes opened to “Happy Birthday to you”, The chorus held me in dismay. They laughed as they never did. I smiled stiffly and hugged them fast. “Noah’s day, would it be?” Was it a predilection, my dream? By afternoon, we celebrated my day. All were lost in merriment and they Laughed drunk, as thunder roared And rain became more intense. Someone busy on network, shouted. Still silence: each gaped at the other; Never heard before: the capital was All in flood since some hours and People were running to safety While underground parking and tunnel Were pools of death; people perished Shrieking for help till their last breath!! 27/08/16 Contest: A Deluge (Julia Ward) A real tragic event on 30th March 2013 (eve of Easter) in Mauritius and I had a dream some days ago and forgot about it. My twin nieces and son birthday was being celebrated on that day. Port-Louis is the capital and the hill has a church of "Mother Mary" as seen in the video. In the interview some people said they were floating as in the "Ark of Noah".
