The vine

Father: vine dresser
pruning the true vine
dressing the vines
paring back
cutting back

Child: vine

from the vine I tumbled
stumbled away
I turned back
to burn back
the vine

unlike the burning  bush

the vine is burned, trimmed,
pruned, dressed

to produce more
to produce better

to grow

Amen, Glynn! May the master vintner ever produce in us fruit for His kingdom!
