UNDER THE FIG TREE

We sat under the fig tree,

studying holy scripts,

searching their meaning,

debating under our fig tree.

We sat under the fig tree,

sharing our questions,

sitting at the rabbi’s feet,

pondering under our fig tree.

 

We sat under the fig tree,

looking up to the light

filtering through leaves and fruit,

searching under our fig tree.

 

We sat under the fig tree,

listening to prophets

speaking to minds and hearts,

praying under our fig tree.

 

We sat under the fig tree,

needing an epiphany

seeing Jacob-like heaven opened,

moving angels under our fig tree.

 

I sat under the fig tree,

hearing an impelling call

urging me to ‘come and see’,

finding me under our fig tree.

 

Thoughts inspired by call of Nathaniel from John 1: 43 – 51
