Driving to Watergardens For Curtains At Dusk After a Storm

23. prompt: use a poetic form
(this is the cascade form, naturally enough)

Melton is awash
water sits beside the road
nowhere else to go.

Melton is sodden
the streets hiss at fast tyres
Melton is awash.

All along the highway
narrow cascades topple into drains
water sits beside the road.

Kororoit Creek runs a banker
10-acre property driveways are lakes
nowhere else to go.
