Trailing Grape Vines

John 15:1-8


Two grape vines grew together along the garden fence

Both looked green and healthy, leaves were dense

The season progressed and they began to flower

Looked like there was a lot of graping power

The one produced pods of grapes ready for picking

The other vine the grapes dried up, taking a licking


What is the symbolism here?

The soil and vines looked very much the same

Their fruit told the difference, a terrible shame.

their fruit told the difference, a terrible shame.


Trailing Grape Vines (c) 2012 Quentin Clingerman

Note:  Those two grape vines are still growing but only one produces good grapes. Actually I cut the one down to the ground thinking it would die.  It didn't but never has produced good grapes.
