Why It Rains When the Fire Tree Blooms

When we were children…

We were told that when the fire tree blooms…

The rains are not too far away.

So my friend and I decided to ask two teachers separately for an explanation.

I went to our science teacher and my friend went to our literature teacher.

The science teacher said that the tree blooms just in time for the pods and seeds to be ready when the rains come. The fire tree has learned this through generations and this lesson is contained in the seed.

The literature teacher said that heaven sends the rains because it has to cool down the earth and put out the flame of the fire tree. This is how the world has maintained its balance through the generations.

My friend and I agreed that both teachers were right.
