“This is on earth” the siren said, “It is the core of our being.
It holds the oceans in which we live and the mountains upon which our coffee grow.
They grow from seeds, you know, to they which take three years to mature.
Then the coffee chimes grow, ripen and are harvested for the beans inside”.
“Is this the way humans mature?” a young siren asked.
“Oh no” the siren replied “They take much longer.
A human matures when intelligence becomes wisdom”.
“And by then, they┬┤ve grown old?” the young siren wondered.
“A curious term” the siren responded
“for it is only when they stop growing that humans become old”.
