a tree branch adrift
all those tangled banks upstream
and yet you are here

(derived from the summer haiku 2008 header)

I took the picture in late April or early May, when the Mississippi River was just rising, but before the floods of Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, etc.

I am glad it inspired you.

Very evocative. It feels very much like a tanka, which is no bad thing of course. ;-)
