Haiku Poem – 雪解け

now melts
water rushes away
river floods

(Ben version)
ゆきどけ や かわ が あふれた しめんそか

(Michiko version)
みず ぬるむ いっき に とけて かわ の みち

In Iowa, there was a new record for the amount of snow in the month of February. As a result, when the weather suddenly got warmer in March, as the snow melted quickly, the rivers were filled with water. Unfortunately, this meant that there was a lot of flooding. The flooding was worst in western Iowa near Nebraska. It is sad that some towns were covered with water. Even near my home, there were some signs of flooding. I hope the worst part is now over.
