Moksha – p.24

December 31, 2012 at 10:17 pm 2 comments

Moksha walked through the trees and soon found that she could no longer hear the water. They came to a clearing then, and the two elders lay down at the edge, as if afraid or unable to go further. “Why have you stopped?” Moksha asked, and it was then that she saw the others.

As far as she could see, the land was gold, as were all the animals in it. Creatures she had never seen, and some she thought she recognized, all grazing and walking about as if they hadn’t a care in the world. Her first instinct was to run out to join them, to see what golden plants tasted like, to breathe golden air; but she could not understand why the elders were not following her.

She turned back to them, but they were gone. She ran back to the river to find them, but they weren’t there. She caught a glimpse of herself in the water, and was shocked to see that she had turned gold, too. A peace settled over her then, an absence of hurt and worry. Moksha rejoined the golden animals in the clearing, knowing that the tribe would be there soon. The promised land would wait for them, and so would she.
