Rhyme of the ancient air plant

"Water water everywhere, but not a drop to drink,"

Muttered the resurrection fern.

This plant is not as dead as it looks:
Just add rain and its instantly reborn

The pond apple tree it's attached to is happily flooded at its roots, meanwhile the branch bound resurrection fern has taken on the tell tale parched and shriveled up shape of not having received a rain drop in weeks.

Could Tuesday be its big day?
