Come with me on a journey back in time, To a northern rural village the year is 1969. It’s a bright and beautiful summers day.
I shall tell you the story as it was told to me by Lilly
She was seventeen years old. She loved the beautiful meadow and sitting on the banks of the stream dangling her feet into the water I guess I’m a bit of a loner She would say she but she didn’t mind her own company and loved being outdoors wondering through woodlands never caught her with shoes on her feet. Barefoot wind in her hair that was Lilly.
The breeze was warm and gently swaying the willow tree on the opposite bank of the stream it’s was late afternoon but the sun was still up there shining brightly and the sky was cloudless and blue.
I’d been been sitting watching the water running over the smooth pebbles she told me The water seemed to glisten and shine in the sunlight the reflection of the willow stretches across to me I was thinking of Alice stepping through the looking glass into a magical land. You know somewhere better than here? I know I’m a day dreamer she continued but then something caught her eye.
Who’s that? There across she caught her breath rubbed her eyes was it heat shimmer from the water?
there watching her beside the willow tree was something at first glance she couldn’t quite make sense of
She rubbed her eyes and squinted. Then rubbed them again. A being a tall almost bird like being or was it?
Sparkling almost iridescent skin, crystal like. Shimmering like the stream running over the pebbles.
Perhaps I’m seeing things she thought.
It seemed to fade in and out of focus, blend in and out of the surroundings almost camouflaged.
Much taller than Lilly longer arms and fingers, it has wings on her back that seamed to retract she was very beautiful.
Lilly stood up slowly then bravely began to paddle across towards the willow tree.
It didn’t move tilted it’s head slightly watching her approach almost curiously
‘Who are you?’ she asked..? Climbing onto the bank beside her.
The being reached out and placed her fingers on Lilly’s forehead. There was a static like buzz.
Standing together barefoot on that grassy bank
Visions started to flood between them like a fibre optic connection.
Lilly gasped as she saw seven tiny stars a small consolation light years away beautiful star people peaceful tribes healers teachers, landscapes of purple topped mountains, waterfalls lush green valleys huge yew like trees and an aray of beautiful amimals
Lilly sighed and whispered Koraki that’s your name?.
The beautiful being nodded and smiled their energy arced together. Her eyes where the most beautiful shade of green like purest Jade. Lilly felt absence of peace and safety she had never known.
Why are you here Lilly thought. Koraki answered her question yet no words were spoken between them
She was a traveller fearless explorer a bringer of light collecting samples of plants and herbs she had been to earth many times it was not unlike her own planet but our species caused her tribe sadness our primitive behaviour humans killing each other and destroying the planet they live on.
She and others like her had also come here to to plant seeds of hope and enlightenment to help awaken humans to enlighten them to heal and save their beautiful mother planet. A new generation of star children.
As the sun began to set darkness fell.
a huge dark moon in an ink black sky and the stars twinkled like diamonds and Koraki iridescent crystalline skin.
She pointed up to the sky to a small cluster of stars barely visible.
That’s home that where you came from? Asked Lilly.
She sighed, ‘Can I come with you?’
Koraki gently touched her forehead again.
‘No spaceships, these beautiful beings travelled through consciousness in the blink of an eye at the speed of light. Like beautiful iridescent white Ravens
‘She then showed Lilly a vision of herself holding a baby girl a star seed.
‘My child? a star child asked Lilly but how.
They stood opposite each other Koraki held up the palms of her hands the palms seemed to pulse and swirl spiral iridescent pure white shining light.
Lilly held up her hands much smaller against Koraki a ball of lights around them glowed she had never felt such love and hope. Their two worlds where connected the joining of two tribes.
Lilly told me she had slept peacefully on that warm summer’s night under the willow tree by the stream.
She was woken by the warmth of the sun and the babbling of the stream a Raven cawed above her and she thought she heard Koraki whisper she would protect her child and she would indeed see her again.
The following spring the baby girl Koraki had gifted her was born seed of the star people.
Outside the window a raven cawed as my mother Lilly gently cradled my in her arms.
She never lost her love for the outdoors and walking barefoot with the wind in her hair.
She passed all that on to me
She told me stories of Alice through the looking glass but this one of Koraki and my star tribe is my favourite
‘I’m a mountain wondering lover of stories Ravens and all things magical I’m a soul midwife and healer
On a summers day you’ll find me with a book sitting under the willow tree feet dangling in the stream
On a dark moon you will find me barefoot on the mountain crossroads looking up to a tiny constellation of stars
