Tension

Surface tension that is. As in the force that allows a water drop after a much-needed rain to keep its shape as it rests upon a thankful leaf.


There are times of the year when a dripping-wet morning is really one of the most wonderful things in the garden...


***


When the fact that your feet get immediately drenched as you wander...


...and your skin gets as wet as the plants...


...as you brush past the instantly-refreshed foliage...


...and the sun quickly rises...



...to light the morning with jewels...


...which will soon return to invisibility...


...weighing the air with their ghosts...



...and the lightness of a wonderfully cool morning...


...too soon lives only in the past.



(and on pages like this)

Very poetic!
Needed rain is so refreshing, isn't it?
