Flood Stage (a Triolet)

flood1

The rain keeps falling, refuses to slow–
and the water just keeps rising.
With each kiss, we know, this passion will grow.
and rain keeps falling, refuses to slow.
We’re chanting these storms in, you know?
The intensity isn’t surprising.
This rain keeps falling, refuses to slow.
and the water just keeps rising.
