Fruit of the Vine



Saturday Centus has rolled around again, and today Jenny has asked us to respond to the tomato prompt pictured below. In her usual magnanimous way, she has allowed us 100 words to make our mark.

Fruit of the Vine
©2013 Susan Noyes Anderson
 
I am yours and you are mine,
grown together on the vine
of life and love and days well spent,
formed and fed by blessings sent:

Sun and rain in heaven's measure,
elements of pain and pleasure,
rising up and reaching down,
seeking sky and breaking ground.

Give and take, bitter and sweet,
nature paints a work complete.
Opposition yields the force...
turns our leaves toward the Source. 

Holding fast to God's own vine,
I am yours and you are mine.

I lovet this! It would make an excellent poem to include on a wedding card. My favorite line is, "You are mine and I am yours." Doesn't get much sweeter than that.

Oh Sue, you look at a pic of tomatoes and write a beautiful, romantic poem..I look at the pic and think...hmmm..BLT...probably because that's what I had for dinner and probably because I'm not a talented writer! You're a gem! Love it!

Karen Sue said...

having fresh tomato sadness. Just don't enjoy them enough when they are growing for me..now it's snow time..missing them.

I'm with Kathy......I looked at the tomato and all I could think of is what a mess we made of things when we tried to grow a couple of tomato plants.

How you could have gotten a love story from this is more than I can fathom. You are something else.

I did like the poem, by the way.
