Shadowed Vine

Vinedresser's shadow
on terra firma is seen
At times so painful...
the knife of My King

Pruning with tenderness
these branches of death...
nourishing the living
with His blood and His breath

Grafted to the heart
of Grand Tender of Vines...
changing the shape
of our hearts and mind

Tender's committal...
cost Him His life
Branch's confession...
"Lord, spare me Your knife!"

His love constrains us
to patiently wait...
when The Dresser's shadow
darkens our gate

Soon we shall see Him...
His radiant splendor...
This Dresser of vines...
and Divine Heart Tender

"Nurture us Lord...
We branches are Thine"
The Vinedresser's shadow
is also "The Vine"

Jron 7/25/03

"I am the vine; you are the branches." John 15:5

Like this poem, Ron, especially the last two stanzas. Controlled, but packed with meaning. Thanks for sharing ~ Violet

Very nice, The only change I would make is to line twelve, I would change it to "Of our hearts and our minds," Good Job!
