‘I’ve wanted you for so long’, called out the cactus to the rain.
‘And I the same’, replied the rain, ‘my journey was far, and I had to transform myself many times to arrive by your side.’
‘I’ve waited here without moving, only growing slowly closer to you’, said the cactus.
At last, they shared a sweet kiss.
‘Drink me in’, said the rain, ‘and know that I am always within you, for even when you feel the scorch of the sun, remember that we are both two and one.’
