Fargesia little seed, why are you waiting for so long? Deep down into the darkness of the earth for so many months, without air, without seeing the sky and the sun?
The bees are wondering when you’re going to spring up…Your cousins already have flowers, ripe fruits, some have already died, and others have already taken their place.
My earthworm friend, the clean water and the rich soil of this land are feeding me well and with this I have enough. You can’t see it now, but the strength I’m now saving, will be enough for my whole life.
Each seed is different, and I am made to last long and be so strong that the wind won’t break me if I have my brothers and sisters by my side.
So, don’t worry about me, keep making the earth soft, and this is the greatest gift you can give me for now.
