dVerse Quadrille #105

Slip Sliding

There’s a landslip at Viking Bay.
First the garage went.

That was Sunday.

The landowner said he moved his car,
thinking the garage might collapse.

Monday, the garage, the house,
and the fishpond fell into the sea.

His neighbour says she’s
not going anywhere.

  1. I like how even the fishpond went into the sea. I hope I would have the sense to move if I were the neighbor.

  3. It’s like a fairy tale. Love that you’ve included the fishpond – I can imagine those carp – downhill and then free at last…Ha.

    1. Happened just as told, except the fishpond in truth is a swimming pool.
