First Fig

Last week was a  personal celebration

of sorts …

A reunion long anticipate


Out of curiosity I saw that

First Jewel hanging ripe and ready

In my excitement I held back

from plucking that green and golden

orb and eating it with the white milk

running down my arms


Rushing inside for containers

my mouth watered and my brain

planned breakfast around these

royal delights


I braved the leaves that cause

my skin to itch and develop

horrible allergic hives

I braved the milky sap that

causes my skin to react in

other unpleasant ways


I picked and searched and

picked again until my two buckets

were full of sticky figs waiting

to satisfy my taste buds …

to quench the thirst of many years with

their delicate inner flesh

Smiling I walked inside anticipating

the sweet taste of the

First Fig …

The first after six longs years of drought
