A singularity of wheat

After John 12:20-28

The kernel of wheat
sways with its brothers
in the wind, its stalk
moving back and forth
with the others until
this kernel, a singularity,
falls to the ground,
its descent the dance
of death. Its death
gives birth to an ocean
of seed erupting from it,
the dance of life.

"It's death gives birth to an ocean." Poerful.
