A Mother God – v2

The metaphor of life
the Vine, like the womb,
the umbilical cord;
but more than this
never to be severed, never cut
the vine a part of us, lifelong
feeding us, giving us strength
a connection to God, eternal
to one another, a family of faith
living in, abiding in the vine
abiding in God, in the love of God
a mother God, in the nature of the vine
helping us bear fruit, a harvest
a message for a hungry world
