Outside the window; a branch of an old Japonica plant. Two of its branches came up from the ground. They had been dead sticks for years, black and hollow. Yet today from the tip of one of them grew a cluster of new leaves. The base of each of the six leaves was a smooth stalk of yellow-green which grew horizontally and then upwards in a spoke formation. And the leaves appeared like up-facing palms, with seven “fingers” each. The leaves and stalks created a bowl formation, waiting to catch something from the sky. Everyone waited for rain on the dry summer day.
