Of Birds and Seeds

Unleashed seeds plunge ground-ward welcoming their destined fate.

Birds soar high above with hunger-filled beaks quickly spotting their next sumptuous feast.

Numerous seeds lightly sprinkle the fertile ground.

Those uneaten by the swooping birds burrow through the earth greeting their miraculous death.

They’ll rise again after radically transforming producing a bountiful harvest that the birds will still long to eat.
