The grape

The grape divorced from the vine.

The vine lives on.

The grape is trampled, crushed, thrown to the ground,

devoured or shrivels.

If fallen to the ground,

decays or is eaten by the bird that flies away.

Yet, the seed will live–though the grape has died,

the seed will fall to the ground producing another vine.

A vine grafted to the other vines?

Or a lone vine among weeds and woods?

The crushed and trampled grape becomes a sweet or dry wine.

The older the juice is the finer the taste.

There is hope for the grape divorced from the vine.
