Sky, land and water

Postcard-sized flash fiction about the things we think we know about sky, water, life and everything in between. And it all starts with an image...

Sky, land and water

Once, there was sky and land and water and nothing more. It was good. But sometimes good can be better. A seed was thrown to the wind. It was carried through sky, across land and fell to the water. It was pushed ashore by waves, and there it made its home.
 
The seed became Tree, who in its reverence, waved to the sky with thin fingers, shaded the land beneath its branches and sheltered small sea creatures in its roots.
 
And what was good, became great and mighty, mighty enough to hold the world in its leafless palms.
