This week our theme was based on the poems by Edna St. Vincent Millay First Fig and Second Fig. We got quite a variety. My contributions are below.

Third Fig
"Reap what you sow," it's said, and "Love
your neighbor as yourself."
Or you can reap his crop instead
for free food on your shelf.

Fourth Fig
From goals delayed anticipate
more joy eventually;
from chances taken now, instead,
you get great memories.

Zeroth Fig
A falling fig, obedient
to force Newtonian,
will travel down until it lands
and not go up again.
