Under the Fig Tree

Under the family fig

Were you the forbidden tree
in the Garden of Eden?
Did Eve bite into your fruit
to find out if Adam really loved her?
Or because she wanted to
know what the Goddess knew,
the One worshipped before God?

My dear fig,
you are the tree of trees,
so regal and feminine,
drenched with the heat of the sun.
Your children taste sweet
and smile even inside our organs.

Wild, happy mother
tree, you are
a prolific shakti.
