Moisture Update

My previous post was of this plant in dire need of moisture. One and a half inches of rain fell the day following that post. The results show us what a good drink of water can do.  It can do marvelous things for humans too. Drinking water every day is good for your body and your skin. Sometimes when you think you are hungry your body is really asking for a drink of water or you feel a little 'tired' and the body is in need of hydration. Everyone seems to be carrying a water bottle this days but how many times during the day is it being refilled.

Seeing the leaves of this plant curled to conserve moisture prompted me to a first attempt at haiku

plants beg their mother
send us rain, shower or storm
a quenching for thirst
