~The star and the earth… and the creation of dandelions~
There once was a great love between the brightest star in the sky and the earth.
She loved her star so very much… each night she would find him and give him worship from afar. She would reflect her star in her waters and watch him with devotion through the leaves in her trees
She loved this star with all of her.
The star loved his earth as well. He warmed her dark places and gave her comfort in shadow. He guided her every night and thought on her during his slumber in day.
The star though- was the most powerful star in the sky and was called on to shine for all creatures both on earth and in the heavens. His was a calling of great importance… and many flocked to him to bathe in his healing light and find in him illumination.
Oftentimes the earth, she would watch her star with awe and wonder- feeling so little next to something so full of light.
Sometimes when he was shining for another she would despair and hide her heart away. Her shadows would run through her forests and darkness would cover her…. it was hard to watch her beautiful star merge his light with another
One day he found her hiding and asked her why… why would she hide herself away?
She covered her face in shame… knowing the nature of a star… knowing that a star as bright as her love had a purpose bigger than her…
And she began to cry….
The sky filled with darkness and a great storm washed sand from beach; flower from field- all took cover as emotion flowed down upon her.
And when the storm had passed and the skies were cleared.. her star was still in the sky… still shining…
My love he told her… my purpose is to shine… but my heart will always carry your light… and with that he sent down heavenly stardust that covered her fields with small yellow dandelions.
I will always cover you… and whenever you feel alone.. simply find my flower and wish for me… I will always come for you.
