The flower said "I wish I was a tree"
The tree said "I wish I could be a different kind of tree"
The cat wished that it was a bee
The turtle wished that it could fly
Really high into the sky
Over rooftops and then dive deep into the sea
And in the sea there is a fish
A fish that has a secret wish
A wish to be a big cactus with a pink flower on it
And the flower would be it's offering of love to the desert
And the desert,
So dry and lonely
That the creatures all apreciate the effort
And the rattlesnake said "I wish I had hands,
so I coud hold you like a man"
And then the cactus said "Don't you understand?
My skin is covered with sharp spikes
that will stab you like a thousand knives.
A hug would be nice, but hug my flower with your eyes."
