The floods are coming to mark an end to my break –
to dream days in my terraced cabin.
I heed the neighbour’s warnings and move on out,
lingering on wood-slatted patio – watching
the last one leave.
Still time, I think, to step back in –
still time to gather up my things –
my pencils, brushes and notebooks.
Still time to float.
Feet dangling, I sit on patio edge,
dipping my toes into salty-water
