The Birth of a Faery. From ORIGINS: True Tales of Creation _____
An early woman of light from the early time decided to try a body which no light being she knew had ever done. The new bodies on Mother Earth had called her soul with their delicate dances and the green blue brown luminosity of Mother Earth’s life shining through them all.
Her gentle sweet skin was so soft and so alive that the faintest touch made her dizzy.
Over time she came to desire to touch another being in body and was overcome by the sudden feeling of loss and longing this desire created.
She cried to the stars and to her light family for help to understand what was happening but none understood this trick of creating a body on Mother Earth that she had caused to happen. In truth they couldn’t even understand why she would have bothered to do this wild thing. And though they all brought love and light and beams of many colors to wrap her up in, it was never enough.
Then one day a giant redwood opened to reveal his spirit in a human form come to be her lover after hearing her human body wept to be carried and held. His soft cedar fingers gently swept her skin as his fresh smell enveloped her. His bark opened wide as he pulled her close, bundling her like a child in to his arms and they moved together in union never noticing how his bark slowly healed itself again around them, enclosing them inside the giant redwood trunk.
For many ages they lay together in a nestled swirl of lovers, like the rings in a tree trunk nestling each other, like birds singing to the morning sun, like bees drunk on the flower’s pollen laying fat and happy in the sun, like foxes nestled into burrows.
They hibernated that way, sliding outside of time almost entirely but staying just enough to hold the matter in place, until one day they discovered they were no more him a cedar and she a human woman. Now they had become a new being altogether, like a tree and like a human at the same time, able to move around and also able to root deeply into Mother Earth.
They looked about themself in the new age of the world that they had awakened into and discovered they had delicate blooms hanging off them that flowered in the colors of purple and pink and blue with sweet green and yellow stamen and rings in the center.
As each flower grew, it bloomed more boldly and bigger and wider until suddenly a living form sprang free from it and popping out into the air floating suspended until eyes opened and body opened, limbs unfurling and shaking themselves out loosely and suddenly giant gossamer wings leapt awake in wide span gently nuzzling the air as the new child being looked around and upwards, laughter tinkling from its essence as it saw mother father tree human bending downward, branches and kisses both as the new child floated and then began to fly.
And this is how certain kinds of faeries were made of light and redwoods and love and magic from outside of time brought here into the unique playground of Earth. Special, darling Earth Mother who brings this magic into form in a way seen never before or anywhere else in any of the many worlds in any of the many universes of The ALL OF ALL.
