Barley in a Field


A time to live, a time to die.

Wheat blowing in the sunshine.

First empty soil, then a sprout.

Wheat growing, swaying in the wind.

To nourish at the peak.

The purpose.

To wilt – to die.  Once again empty soil.

To start the cycle another time.

Unchanged since the beginning.

A time to live.  A time to die.
