Ashtar About The Rain
This is a sample from Chapter 3 (Ashtar About The Rain), Part 1 (The Garden) of Sona Siepakova’s novel Loved By The Sun.
In Part 1 (The Garden), the main character, Meritaton, a pharaoh’s daughter, spends most of her time in the vast garden behind her palace. She is going to build a shamanic circle, try to call in the rain, speak with the Earth, see a pyramid with her father… In Part 2 (The School), Meritaton goes to a spiritual, mystery school where students learn techniques of personal and spiritual growth to gracefully pass their final test of courage…
Begin to imagine what I am going to say. Try focusing fully. We are going to create a vibrant portrait of rain wrapped up in beautiful feelings and keep it vivid for about a minute or two. Ready?
Of course. Well?
A huge, wet raindrop has just fallen on your shoulder. It has splashed around and soaked part of your clothes. As if someone has spilt a spoonful of warm water over you.
Right now, another drop has landed in the middle of your forehead. It has begun to drizzle amidst the big splashes which keep falling with a thud. The tiny raindrops tickle you on the skin almost like invisible grains of sand. Even the soil and the plants around you have already been covered with thousands of little drops. The sunlight is painting them with little rainbow stripes and millions of minute sparks. It is beautiful to lie in this warm, summer shower… And, all of a sudden, it has turned into a downpour. In a second, you are soaked to the skin.
Ashtar! Meritaten sat up. What a vivid dream! I was afraid that if I were to keep lying in that heavy rain, water would get in my nose! I was going to drown! Will I not be floated away into the river?
I am glad you have not fallen asleep, my dearest Meritaten! Please, lie down peacefully again. We shall rescue you! Well, it is pouring down heavily, like from Pekshenkare’s watering can. However, Meritaten is no longer in the meadow! Just in time, she ran away to hide under a nearby wooden shed. Now, from her safe place, she is only watching the wind gusts playing with the strings of falling water. They resemble a thick curtain which is being moved away to the left in one moment, only to be tilted to the right in the next… Sometimes, the rain swirls in the wind as if it were dancing with an elemental, wild thrill! And even though some drops have reached the shelter, Meritaten does not mind. She cannot take her eyes off this captivating spectacle!
Is the wind not dangerous, Ashtar? Is it not going to break the trees? Or blow away the flowerbeds?
This is neither a destructive gale nor a hurricane, my dear. Go ahead and complete my picture now. What ideas occur to you?
