La Mora y el Cocuyo (The Blackberry and the Firebeetle)

A tale from an old Pemón woman about a BlackBerry who falls in love with a Firebeetle. The Firebettle rejects the BlackBerry because she is old, hunched over and with no leaves to show. As time passes, the BlackBerry is reborn and the Firebeetle has a change of heart and wants to know her secret.
