There is a vine
That spreads
For the salvation
Of mankind --
It is the vine known
To us
In this earthly
Time...
It is the vine
That weaves
Within the boughs
As it spreads
Prosperity all around...
It is the vine
That holds
The tender place
Where the soul
Will find
Redemption
Beneath
Our Father's grace...
It is the vine
That is above
All else --
The strength
From which
Mankind does find
To persevere
When there is a need...
It is the vine
That provides
Harvest
From life's seed...
It is the vine
That clings
To the father tree...
It is the vine
That shares
With mankind
The purest form
Of divinity...
It is the vine
That allows
No withered limbs
To remain
Connected to itself --
The source...
It is the vine
That to man
Is a mighty force --
It is the force
That blends
Redemption
From the Holy One
With salvaiton
To all human-kind
Through God's
Perfect Son...

Great idea! Poetry formatted to look like a vine. And you wrote it well, too. I love it!

This is wonderful. I hope you send it to a poetry magazine or other literary magazine where poetry is truly appreciated.

I liked this much, keep up the good work.

Excellent! I suspect if you centered this poem, then adjusted here and there, this would look even more like a vine. Very creative! The repeated phrase "It is the vine" is a type of trellis on which the rest of the verses are supported. I see a lot of symbolism here. I loved this!
