Once the dry land, Saskatchewan is waterlogged. After heavy snow melt, rain. Highways closed, basements flooded, river banks breached. Emergencies declared. The ground is saturated. When the sky leaks, drops can only flow. The creek looks thick, slick, congealed. Impenetrable. Murky. An illusion.

The river darkens.
But oh, how lovely walking by the creek at noon!
