The Road

rains came

sometimes only a drizzle

or a pouring out all day

slope of the terrain meant it would not pool

rather it made a tiny groove in the crushed gravel

 

winter came and it rained and rained

groove went deeper into the road until it was a rut

Now tires might get stuck

a flash flood would wash it away

that would keep the people out

the road needs maintenance

  1. oh yes…….the rains that come and come so hard and for so long that they create grooves in the earth, the slopes, the mountainsides….and ruts in the road that fill with the water. Good details here.
