Night of Noah

Thinking of all our friends in Tully and Far North Queensland living
with the floods, and soon to commence their clean up.

Ripple Poetry

For the People of Townsville and Far North Queensland

The rain began
to fall
and fall

And some
for it had called
but not quite this much.

The rain didn’t care at all
it just wanted to
fall
and
fall.

The water
tumbled
and tumbled
and
tumbled
would it ever end.

It built up
Ross River dam until
it had to be released.

More flood rumbled
and flowed
and
flowed
and flowed.

The people wondered
when it would
end
then it began again.

Roads closed
and closed
and
closed.

The people stumbled
then picked themselves
up
and up
up.

The people kept on going
checking devastation
thankful to be with
family and
friends
wanting to be strong
strong
strong.

Reaching out
and out
and
out

And the rain
kept on falling
falling
falling and then

the sun came out.
