All that water that soaks into the ground,
I would like to know, where does it end up?
After drenching, earth dries quite quick, I’ve found.
A day or two, and from mud, hard enough.
Some is subject to evaporation.
Groundwater and, I suspect, just below.
But that is not the whole explanation.
Some sinks deep, so question, ‘where does it go?’
To plants, of course, naturally watered,
and seeps to lakes, streams and wetland places.
In rock fractures. The rock may get altered.
Lodge in subsurface soil porous spaces.
Over time, influence ground faults and change.
I’m thinking, tectonic plates rearrange?
