Today's image is of a Jesse Tree from a Chocktaw worldview.
Root of Jesse
From many an ancient prophecy
To all who would be reconciled
Breaks through at last.
A Virgin shoots accepts
Bows to the mighty Deed.
Bears bud, flower, fruit:
Christ blossoms as David's root.
Lord, you are steam, stalk, tree!
Let your fruit take root in me.
