submerging the Water Bus platform,
branches sped under Cardiff Bridge
instead of tourist boats.
Bute Park transmuted into a transient lake
the shape of the future perhaps.
For days Storm Dennis had ruled the air
causing flood devastation and despair.
The storm tortured gothic trees in the park,
rain swept across and the gale raged
as if a tormented beast.
The Gorsedd Stones were almost devoured
now appearing like a shipwreck
then the sun broke briefly through
and ghost diamonds shone but they did not stay
rain clouds returned...to wipe them all away.
