This is one of those stories that started nagging me and gave me no peace until I gave in and put it on paper.

Kneeling down he listened to the roar of the sea as it slammed into the rocky shore.  He let his thoughts wonder as usual.  He was long past lonely, long past being bored.  He had no need for focus, nothing to keep his attention.

Nothing has changed in the rocky terrain for centuries.  Sure there was the occasional volcanic eruption, scattered earthquakes.  Even asteroids fell to the land, restructuring the landscape like some abstract artist with a flick of the brush.  But the fact remained, He was bored.

As He was drifting through His dreams a noise He hadn’t heard or even hoped to hear startled Him.  He heard footsteps behind Him.

Masking His surprise he slowly stood.  With His head held high and antlers shining brightly, He turned around to face a beautiful sight.  She stood there smiling warmly at Him.  In Her eyes He could see the reflection of the stars and the mystery of all things shining through.  Her long hair streamed out behind her in the wind like a silken banner.

She reached her hand out to him.  He nervously took it. As Their fingers touched a jolt of energy surged through Them that shook the foundations of the earth.  During that moment They both saw infinite possibilities of life on this planet.

With that knowledge They knelt down next to the sea together.  Reaching out together, They touched the water and with little more than a thought, the first spark of life was born.  Over the next few centuries They nurtured that life and aided the evolution of a variety of species.

As the life flourished in the sea, They created a variety of plants and trees on the land.  As the atmosphere stabilized, some of the creatures of the sea evolved into oxygen breathing animals and left the sea for the land.

Eventually some of the animals gained the ability to reason and think.  No longer did they need to rely totally on instinct.  One of these branches evolved into the human race.

Over the centuries since, the Mother and Father of all life have been known by many names.  The God and Goddess continue to nurture life and we continue to struggle to understand it.
