Every time it storms or rains
I have to find a way to prevent
water from finding its way
into my garage.
It’s a new problem. 
Before, there was a tree,
a tree that created a natural
barrier, but also caused
destruction of my back
concrete patio with its roots.
I can’t decide which is worse
but I sure would love
to not have a damaged patio
or water in my garage.
Thinking about a solution
is as heavy as a tree or a flood.
