Moksha – p.10

September 18, 2012 at 1:25 pm Leave a comment

Moksha was so excited she tugged her mother’s tail. “Look! A great river! Is that where we’re going?”

Her mother turned and took Moksha’s trunk in her own, a soft embrace. “No, my child. We cannot reach that place yet, but that is why we come on this journey. That is the promised land of our people.” She turned and looked south along the edge of the dry land. “We have traveled many miles in that direction, and lost many elders.” Then she turned to face the north. “We have also explored this way, and that is the direction we will take in the morning. You should rest now.”

Moksha had far too many questions to sleep but her mother fell silent and would not be pushed. Everyone settled in to rest. Moksha sat down facing the valley, and kept turning her head to the right and left, trying to see into the distance. Certainly there was a way down? How many times had the herd made this journey? Would they find food or water by going north? She was very thirsty. Night fell over the promised land, but Moksha did not sleep.
