How storms came to the World

A myth submitted to the site by Leonie

The sky and the world, Syria



How storms came to the world

A long time ago there lived Great Mother and Great Father. Great Mother and Great Father lived in the sky. Great Mother and Great Father were longing for a child. One day their wish came true. They had twins called Jack and Jay.

Years past and Jack and Jay grew and grew. Great Mother and Great Father were so busy with their children they forgot all about their people. The people were growing sadder and sadder because it was so hot they could not grow crops and they overcooked their meat.

One day Jack and Jay were playing with glass beads.
Great mother was busy in the kitchen.
She asked the twins to help her but they didn’t listen.
They were too busy having fun with the glass beads.
Great Mother got angry and banged two saucepans together.
The saucepans made a loud sound and a spark.
The glass beads broke and the boys began crying.

Down below the people were happy. There was a storm.
The crops began to grow and everyone was happy.
From then on the crops grew and it wasn’t always hot.
You can still here Great Mother banging her Saucepans and the glass beads breaking and the twins crying.
