When the earth fell in love......

This is a work of fiction which has haunted me from a long long time. It's only now that I am putting it down in words, to give more meaning to my ideas. It's a love story between the earth and the sky. The earth and sky are inseparable, they cannot escape each other. Earth is embraced by the sky, protecting Her in His arms since age. But what happens when the earth falls in love with the sky..... is the plot of this story! It's a journey from the unknown to the known....

The sun shone brightly and it's rays pierced through to reach the ground. The trees stood tall beside the calmly flowing river. Birds flew with joy and the flowers seemed to dance in harmony. Close to the banks of river a beautiful woman stood washing her feet which was covered with mud. She was no human, she was mother earth! Her beauty could not be explained by simple words and was beyond human comprehension. The trees, the flowing river and birds acknowledged her presence and bowed with reverence. The river water came rushing to wash her feet and pay their respects. She continued to walk through the forest silently and slowly like a queen in her kingdom.....

The sky was clear that day. He was flying as usual in his speed watching for any suspicious signs. He had a hundred eyes and his hands were swift in driving him to the desired location. Now as he passed his eyes through this forest, he came to a sudden halt. 'Who is this damsel?' he questioned himself. 'Those eyes, filled with beauty of nature, such a beautiful face. What lovely hair!...'He seemed to have lost in thought. The sun drove his chariot over the distracted sky and it was only then did sky realize he had stopped flying! He apologised to his master and continued swiftly forward. But for the rest of the day he found that his heart was without peace.... He left all his eyes and gave away his heart to that damsel in the forest......  And when night fell, he led all those stars near the forest and it was the most beautiful night. He could not take his eyes off earth. He had wondered how did he not notice her all this while!

The End
