Droplets of rain

How much water can the soil take in,
drunk as it is on last week's inter-
mittent rain? Walked around my front
yard this morning (squelch, squelch)
on rain-sodden earth. The clouds gave
no hint that the sun might peek through,
later. No drops of water remained on
sheath-like leaves but they looked more
vibrant. But the broader ones, like my
papaya leaves, were still dripping drop-
lets of rain......
