oh, thirsty plants

It seems strange
that with all this rain we've had
over the last few days, and
the air saturated with moisture,
that my plants are still in want of water.

I can't bare to walk out on my sopping wet porch to pour
more water into the system. And yet,

I see the dry soil is taut and cracking--
just like the skin after fallen tears leave behind
their tight, salty residue,
essentially making the original wetness

I see the green leaves are beginning to brown and
wilt at the edges.
They're so tired and thirsty.
