Capillary Action

on January 6, 2020

Small glass cubed-shaped vase
Home for plant roots growing in water
Philodendron thriving nicely
In its bed of smooth pebbles

Today things however did not go well
While watering my plant
I missed the mark badly
Pouring a puddle upon my end table

Recalling science lessons from long ago
I grabbed a paper towel and created a straw
To suck up the liquid
O joy it did! problem solved
