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.
