Art and the philosophy of life

Kiss of Fig

Melanie wrote this important poem. To me, it speaks of many things, relationships and the world in which we currently live. The greedy and rich have attached themselves to the earth and are sucking the life out of it…soon all that will be left are the ghostly images of what once was, held in place by their desperate and still greedy claws. Thank you Melanie. So very much.


The following was inspired by this lovely photo from Laurie W. Smith who was kind enough to let me post it here 🙂


The bliss of fig

embraces, nutrients tap

from its host for its own good

The curse of fig

nooses, chokes and wraps

killing the host where it stood

The kiss of fig

seduces root and sap

trapping the ghost in wood
