Fig Tree (Sacred Signia)

Full foliage like a seductress’ robe
Promises much,
But branches empty as a paycheck blown
Offer no such
Satisfaction. They can never fulfill,
Can be no crutch.
But even wild branches grafted in will
Thrive if the root below is stronger still.
The harvest reaped can be a hundred-fold
Even if the vine is planted on stone.
