Wheat or what? by H.-J. John

Look out the window!
Do you see the birds? They neither sow nor reap, yet they are cared for, people say.
We cannot fly.
So while sowing, remember that you will reap wheat or hailstones.
While sowing, remember that you will reap war or peace.
If you have sown hatred you cannot reap peace.
If you have reaped war you cannot sow peace.
Let’s stick to the wheat.
