slantslope lapping Sound.
Lazy Saturday sunshroud casts
needed shadow long pier and breeze.
The gradual rock to sand to mud
and grasses new submerged each duck dive thud.
Thicket shore and beach the other side.
The great horizontal
who sometimes needs to
wet, wider out.
There are no Natural disasters.
Only livings and houses
in her occasional Way.
Ripples now once again
where was this awful flood.
