The Narrow Path to Life

The painting looks down at the narrow path

with a green leaf containing a web of life

towering like a big tree that never dries 

surrounded by flowing streams 

it prospers and scatters its seeds

along the path stained with red Rose Hip dye

giving  life 

Some might see Biblical references in it (Mt 7,13-14; Ps 1,3)

others environmental warnings

of the narrowing path of life

with the land that becomes dryer and cracks

underneath man's weight 

and steps humanity takes
