This happened many many summers ago.
There was a young flower in the desert where all was dry and sad looking ... It was growing by itself ... enjoying every day ... and saying to the sun "When shall I be grown up"?
And the sun would say "Be patient" — Each time I touch you,you grow a little"
... And she was so pleased.Because she would have a chance to bring beauty to this corner of sand ... And this is all she wanted to do — bring a little bit of beauty to this world.
One day the hunter came by — and stepped on her. — She was going to die — and she felt so sad. Not because she was dying — but because she would not have a chance to bring a little bit of beauty to this corner of the desert.
The great spirit saw her, and was listening. — Indeed,he said ... She should be living ... And he reached down and touched her — and gave her life.
And she grew up to be a beautiful flower ... and this corner of the desert became so beautiful because of her.
