Sun, Moon and Standing Clouds

Huichol Inspired

By David Chethlahe Paladin

1981

The sun, moon and standing clouds inhabited the place where dreams-not-yet-seen were sleeping.  For time longer than all times together they remained quiet but in their loneliness they decided to move together.  In doing so they caused the first dream-to-be-seen to issue out of the void.  That dream became the first god of all beginnings and that god gave to the sun a great power to bring forth flowers.  To the moon and the standing clouds he gave the colors that they now wear.
