peach gospel in the cellar

  in an old cellar mason jars
 full of canned sunsets line
  the shelves.

   ripened years ago. 

 they have names like
 sylvia's famous peach

 each has a piece of paper
 with a bible verse written on it.   

   one day a slim figured girl will
 ask her grandmother to try some.

she will reach for the jar of john 15:1

" i am the true vine and my
 father is the vinedresser."

 snap and the lid will come off.

 with a warm smile the sweetness
 of a parable will be turned
 into a crisp cobbler.
