I am the vine, you are the branches. 
Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit.
(Gospel)

We may learn that
we are
rooted in Christ

that regardless
the atmosphere

regardless our
stunted growth

regardless our
daily dyings

we have the
potential

we are the
potential

to bloom

because of
Christ
our earth

because of
Christ
our atmosphere

we are the seed
from
the Father’s hand
we are
the breaking shell
sending
down roots reaching
our shoots
up stretching toward
our Maker
