Sunday Morning Musings: The Plants Need to Watered

The plants need to be watered.
My mind stirs
My thoughts obsess
I attach
cling, crave
The plants need to be watered.
The energy of a bustling metropolis
housed in the emotional vessel of a desert landscape
Parched, desperate
The plants need to be watered.
The earth is nourished
as the soil moistens
The ground drinks.
It gulps
So satisfying …
The plants need to be watered.
The midday sun will burn the leaves and dry everything out
The respite of this moment is precious and delicate
Savor it.

The plants need to be watered.
