Cornflower’s New Name – p.3

July 7, 2011 at 4:36 pm 1 comment

As she sat by the river, Cornflower watched the sparkling reflections of the Sun on the water. Her people held the Sun as sacred, and yet she had spent many nights praying to the Moon. What if, she thought, the Moon cannot help me? Could that be the meaning of the vision?

She decided to wake early the next morning to wait for the sunrise. She would stand just like the women in her dream, with her hands held out towards the east.

Instead, the next day Cornflower was roused by her mother, having slept through morning’s meal. “Child, I tried many times to wake you but you were as a bear in winter! So now you must forage for your food like a bear; there will be nothing else until evening meal I’m afraid.”

Sad in her heart, and angry at herself, Cornflower walked to the woods on the far end of the river to try to find some berries to eat. The Sun was bright, but she did not enjoy its light and warmth. She no longer felt worthy of it. She was glad when she reached the shade of the trees, so that the Sun could not shine down on her anymore.
