After the Storm

The water recedes, With muddy land all around; Humid is the air.

Raul, I live in a very humid area near the Gulf coast, so this really struck a chord for me! Very nice image! And I'm glad my work is growing on you. Sometimes, you have to read more than a couple works by a poet to understand their sentiments. Thanks for reading "Unicorn." It is among my favorites as I have suffered from nightmares all my life and have to take medication (that doesn't always work) to dispell them. Love, Carolyn

Your words offer a certain amount of eloquence while conforming well to the rigidity of the form. As well, they speak with a clarity that provides the exact image or intent. Very well written. Michael

Okay and it sounds like a mess. I live close to a river and it is the most fun to walk the bank after the water goes down and find treasures from days gone by. Mostly old bottles. Most of mine look perfect but when you pick them up the side in the dirt is broken. Wow that could be deep, lol. Things that look beautiful until you look into what is hidden. A lucid thought at 11:31 that's amazing. Night Raul. Laurie

Hi Raul; years ago I went through a flood and this has the feeling for me of that event.

So much truth in your words. Humid can also refer to the somber mood often felt as people deal with the devastation. Interesting reflection. Karen
