Two Vines

DSCN0695_edited-1
Against a crust of snow
a vibrant mask appears
amidst white, a welcomed plight.

Trailing, twisting, turning…

Bitter sweet good-byes
beckoning eyes to garner;
baited, bribe’s delight.

Stony slopes and timber thicket…

Climbing woody heights,
clamber in clusters,
canker or cursed blight.

Value the Veracious Vine…

Drink not bittersweet liquor,
dulls the shrouded mind,
dims the veiled eye’s sight.


“I am the Vine; you are the branches.
Whoever abides in me and I in him,
he it is that bears much fruit, for
apart from me you can do nothing.”
John 15:5

At dVerse we are entertaining poisonous plants. Hopefully, we’ll all survive.

  1. I wrote something about bittersweet a short time back. It’s a lovely autumn decoration, but beware!! Great write, my friend!

  2. Beautifully done! I love the powerful image of the vibrant mask against a crust of snow, the ‘bitter sweet good-byes’ and the final warning:
    ‘Drink not bittersweet liquor,
    dulls the shrouded mind,
    dims the veiled eye’s sight’.
