Hold On…

Grapevine dead

One day, during the aftermath

of winter

you noticed the vine and said

“I wish I’d taken better care of you,

when the cold wind blew

and the freeze took your life.

You look how I feel.”

But then, spring came.

You noticed something new.

Grapevine bud

What you thought

was gone for good

because you could not see,

was just waiting

for the right time

and the right circumstance

to come bursting forth.

Life!

Beautiful and tender,

and growing.
