To Be A Fig | #CapturedInWords

Dear Mr Lawrence*,
None a living thing is forever
Better a bursten fig I'd be
And be beheld
In truthful majesty
Than not to flower at all

Each bloom 
Better bold and brighter
Must we be
To seed the next

Nay I won't keep
And neither you would
Nay I won't keep
I won't keep at all

Yours Sincerely,

*D.H Lawrence - Figs


I have a terrible habit of never finishing what I set out to write and you know what? That’s fine. For me, writing is a progressive, evolutionary act and so I try to publish in short, first drafts to give myself less of a hard time and the freedom to capture whatever I feel at a given time. 

You can follow along on Instagram with the hashtag. I’d love it if you added your own, too.
