My Grapevine Is Watering Itself
My grapevine is wicking up water
by Spock the Vegan
from its myriad roots below the ground.
Capillary action for all to see, dripping
from cut-off branches does astound.
It's kept the bird bath full,
Even though there's been no rain for a week.
Now I cut off a branch above the roots,
and it's dripping there after rising to its peak.
