Rain and its Aftermath

The maple tree stealthily conceals the water

and with glee, sprinkles a few drops

on each unsuspecting traveler

 

The sparrow delicately licks

the fresh water from a leaf

savouring the taste

before moving on

 

The land below absorbs the water greedily,

leaving a few drops out of pity

for the ever-hungry sun
