Overflow

Over

trunk hugged boulders

 water swell spins bursting

raindrops reunited, released

 in wind and storm to lakes and streams, their beds

once cracked dry, now an overflow.

So hard to fathom—all

this could soon be

over.

Both photos show the same creek.  The top photo was taken this month (April) and the second one shows the creek dried up last August.  The poem uses a form called “Rictameter”.
