The Prevailing Storm

The prevailing storm has swollen the river waters. The water erosion of the soil has uprooted many trees.
Carried by the fast-moving current, the wreckage moves downstream,
Some clash against each other, fracture and break. Others tumble and are momentarily caught in the scree. Alas, they, too, are carried away by the torrent. The few remaining in the water will eventually flounder because they have no soil to anchor their roots.
