In stillness, she sat. Swirling energies engulfed her meditation seat. Colors of the rainbow steadily coursed along her spine. Turmoil and lack lurked behind her. The sun shone on her green skin. When wisdom whispered, her heart listened. A chance to help discerned, her third eye opened. When the time came, she sprang to life. Gracefully, she rose to her fullest height. Swiftly, she leapt to a waterfall in the sky. Her cupped hands caught the silvery shower to redirect its flow. Then, drought ceased. Crops flourished. People and animals rejoiced. All because she sat, in stillness. Hail Green Tara.

Can somebody give me a hand? I’m not sure what’s going on. Is she the goddess of rain?
Gorgeous, poetic prose. More please.
If only we had a green Tara to make the drought go away!
I love the gentle flow of the prose and its lyrical quality. Good fantasy writing. Imaginative.
