Tiny Stories: The Girl Who Dances

Popular belief has it that the universe is comprised of atoms. In reality, the universe is actually made up of…

Mother Nature’s nose bleeds as the climate changes and zoonotic illnesses are on the rise and the human virus that infects the planet pushes itself toward extinction over squabbles of skin tone, religion, and wealth and the only thing holding the fabric of the universe together is Umbra, whose name means shadow, which is where she dances.

She is a shy girl with the crooked smile and nervous laugh who keeps herself to herself and stands apart from the rest of the so-called real world, moving her body to a tune of ancient magicks that no one else can hear and loving the vision of what people can become if only they can get out of their own way.

Pray the day never comes when she stops dancing.

  1. I hope she keeps dancing too.
    People really need to get out of their own way. You couldn’t have said this any better, Rhyan.
    The world is falling apart in so many ways. You just need to read the news or listen to some local gossip to learn that misery and hatred are the specials on life’s menu.
    Really felt this one. 🙂

    • The saying, “everything put together, falls apart” is all too true and unfortunately, things are destroyed quicker than they’re built, even societies. You’d think with all the history beneath our belts that the “every person for themselves” mentality would have faded out of existence by now, but alas and lack this is not the case.

      I wish I could hear the music and knew the steps because I would most certainly join in the dance.
