I always used to say I’m going here
I’m going there, but truly
I already am where I need to go
I already am where I need to be
If I was supposed to be some place else
I would be there by now
Even so, it’s okay to be here
I am always here
Always have been
I just didn’t know till now.
2019 Arkansas River flood has made the records books for the highest river levels ever. By Wednesday the River is expected to crest at 42′. The Army Corp of Engineers has been releasing at full capacity since the rains started. Flooding is rampant along the bordering river towns.
Below are some photos I took standing on Riverside walking trails in Tulsa, that are today gone due to errosion from the rushing waters.
I thought it would be better to get a closer look riding a scooter, so I did. I left after seeing the mighty Arkansas River overtake a playground area.
On my way home I stopped by the Verdigris River, which feeds into the Arkansas River, this river is by my home and I’m thankful I’m living on high ground.
The scariest part for me is that my mom and sister live in Arkansas in Van Buren. The city is surrounded by water. Fortunately they both live on higher ground like me. 🙏🏼💜
Dark is her sky sometimes I watch her clatter around In the castle with round walls She makes not a sound How I wish, oh I wish For a little magic somewhere Then flown through her window A Midnight Butterfly so rare The moon it was blue It glistened the sky Midnight Butterfly kissed her Right on the eye From that day on she saw Nothing but gladness Rainbows and sunshine Midnight Butterflies are magical that way
