Moksha – p.2

August 14, 2012 at 10:56 am 1 comment

The next morning, Moksha’s mother came to wake her. “Time to rise my young one, and greet the day.”

Moksha mumbled and covered her eyes with her big, floppy ears. “I don’t want to! I’m still tired.” Every morning, Moksha fought with her mother this way, for she wanted to stay in the land of dreams and dozing just a little longer, and wake up on her own. She did not understand why she was not allowed to sleep past sunrise, and wondered why the adults always woke up so early.

“You must break your fast, my child,” said her mother, and she pushed and nudged Moksha down to the river’s edge to get a drink of cool water. “Today we journey far.”

“Journey?” Moksha asked. She sucked water up into her trunk, but instead of shooting it into her mouth, she sprayed it out into the air, allowing the mist to blow back over her face. It felt cool and soft.

“Yes. We are all going to a sacred place. It will be your first time, and you must pay attention and learn the way, for one day you will lead your own daughter there.”

Moksha was now so intrigued and excited that she forgot to be grumpy with her mother for waking her up. A journey!
