The fruits hold life in themselves once more.

A plant grew when someone coiled DNA around a stick.
It tried to make a withered tree be in bloom and bore fruit in far-off country.
Once, the tree has died after found people's strictness and kindness.
The fruit which fell on the ground has started spreading small roots and putting@
forth buds in the atmosphere of its home, *Yamato.

There is the only way to refine one's art with people as if diamond can polish @

Since a lot people put nourishment and affection into it, a sign of new bud was @
metamorphosed into afresh life as an inner-creature from its mind.

The afresh life would be yourself or myself when it pass through our minds.

There was a withered tree.
It brought forth fruits for some time.

Raising the fruits as true life, it will come into good flowers.
And pray all living things to be in bloom in their hearts.

We could fail our plans again and again.

The fruits hold life in themselves once more.

*Yamato: ancient name of Japan

A Summary of "Rebirth"
I realized that people would be capable of holding life many times,
and then the force of attraction between two could be linked with each other.
When I tried to visualize the working of life, I have already set about sculpturing.
Until now many things I tried went wrong.
However,it can safely be said that life is full of ups and downs for me,
for you, and all living things.
