Moon Maiden Found
In her travels, Rainbow Raven encountered a wolf. He was hurt and needing help.
He was larger than any wolf she had seen, and had a regal air about him. She cared for him till he was well. He has stayed by her side ever since. A constant companion and true friend in her search.
Their journey had taken them far, they experienced and encountered many things, but she still could not find her heart. As they walked, she thought about her journey.
The Villages that welcomed her in early fall as The Rainbow Raven, believing her presence was a blessing of good will. The meeting of her companion, how dedicated to her he was. Always there for her, guarding, protecting....but letting her chose her own path.
The first time in many moons, she smiled.
The sun was high in the sky when they stopped to rest. The mid-summer's sun was warm, but not hot in the high hills. They rested & bathed in the sun.
Suddenly, Rainbow Raven was startled, her mind had drifted to "that" night.
But there before her was the vision of her longing...and realized, her heart, it wasn't lost. It just wasn't whole....and was looking for it's other half. She stood & looked deep at the vision.... It was his face....It was....Her companion and trusted friend.
She looked at him as the vision faded... He began to speak.
"Dearest Lady, You say your heart was lost, mine was lost too. But you see, they were not lost, just shared. That night our spirits danced in our dreams, they exchanged hearts and in the depth of passion...Our hearts split, each getting half of the other's. Since then, our spirits have searched. By joining together, our hearts are whole, and we can fly." As he spoke, he began to change... slowly he took the form of a handsome brave.
" I am Lunarpup, Moondog of the Greengoddess, and my heart belongs to you"
A feeling came over her... a warmth of pure tenderness and love filled the void that once held her heart. It was THERE, and half of Lunar's heart was embedded within.
She knew half of her heart was within his. As he looked upon her with joyful tears, a peaceful calm came across all the land, for Rainbow Raven was home.
