★☆The Cloud And The Dune☆★

06.12.2015 02:50 EST
A young cloud was born in the
midst of a great storm over the
Mediterranean Sea, but he did
not even have time to grow up
there, for a strong wind pushed
all the clouds over towards
Africa. As soon as the clouds
reached the continent, the
climate changed. A bright sun
was shining in the sky and,
stretched out beneath them, lay
the golden sands of the Sahara.
Since it almost never rains in the
desert, the wind continued
pushing the clouds towards the
forrest in the south. Meanwhile,
as happens with young humans
too, the young cloud decided to
leave his parents and older
friends in order to discover the
world. 'What are u doing?' cried
the wind. 'The desert's the same
all over. Rejoin the other clouds,
and we'll go to Central Africa
where there are amazing
mountains and trees!' But the
young cloud, a natural rebel,
refused to obey, and, gradually,
he dropped down untill he
found a gentle generous breeze
that allowed him to hover over
the golden sands. After much
toing and froing, he noticed that
one of the dunes was smiling at
him. He saw that the dune was
also young and newly formed
by the wind that had just
passed over. He fell in love with
her golden hair right there and
'Good morning,' he said. 'What is
life like down there?' 'I have the
company of the other dunes, of
the sun and the wind, and of the
caravans that occasionall pass
through here. Sometimes its
really hot, but it's still bearable.
What is life like up there?' 'We
have the sun and the wind too,
but the good thing is that I can
travel accross the sky and see
more things.' 'For me,' said the
dune, 'life is short. When the
wind returns from the forrests,I
will dissapear.' 'And does that
make you sad?' 'It makes me
feel that I have no purpose in
'I feel the same. As soon as
another wind comes along, I'll
go south and be transformed
into rain; but that is my destiny.'
The dune hesitated for a
moment, then said: 'Did you
know that here in the desert, we
call the rain paradise?' 'I had no
idea said the cloud proudly. 'I've
heard other older dunes tell
stories about the rain. They say
that, after rain, we are all
covered with grass and flowers.
But I'll never experience that,
because in the desert it rains so
It was the cloud's turn to
hesitate now. Then he smiled
broadly and said: 'If you like, I
can rain on you right now. I
know I just got here, but I love
you, and I'd like to stay here
forever.' When I first saw you
up in the sky, I fell in love with
you too,' said the dune. 'But if
you transform your lovely
white hair into rain, you will
'Love never dies,' said the dune.
'It is transformed, and besides, I
want to show you what
paradise is like.' And he began
to caress the dune with little
drops of rain, so that they could
stay together for longer, until a
rainbow appeared. The
following day, the little dune
was covered in flowers. Other
clouds that passed over,
heading for Africa, thought that
it must be part of the forest
they were looking for and
scattered more rain. Twenty
years later, the dune had been
transformed into an oasis that
refreshed travellers in the shade
of its trees. And all because, one
day, a cloud fell in love, and he
was not afraid to give his life
for that love
