Butterfly Transformations Essay

777 words - 3 pages

Before the existence of Earth, there were four winged elemental gods,
and one superior god. These gods and goddesses were: the sky goddess,
Gemalia; the water goddess, Saraces; the earth god, Chago; the fire
goddess, Argon; and the Superior Goddess, DawnDo. These five kept
constant watch over the universe, adamantly flying over and throughout the
wide abyss. During one of their days off, they were playing kick the can
among the stars. They all came flying down towards the can and collided,
creating planet earth. Because of the great collision, their wings fell off and
mystically transformed into millions of wondrous, colorful butterflies.
“This great planet,” DawnDo reasoned to herself, “was created from the
sacrifice of four great gods. I shall show them the utmost respect and
create a race of new beings from these incapable butterflies to care for and
tend to the rich lands that this marvelous planet holds.” With that, DawnDo
created the first human from a few baseball cards, a sack of marbles and a
dead parakeet named Petey. She formed the next human out of three bricks,
a large orange and a few blades of grass from the field in which her flying
horse was grazing. DawnDo breathed life into the bodies, thus creating the
beginning of mankind. These humans reproduced and soon the human
population was that of the butterflies’. That is, there was exactly one
butterfly for every human.
The humans took wonderful care of the earth. So much so, in fact,
that DawnDo decided to create more new creatures from the land itself.
There became thousands of new birds, there were lions, sheep, cows,
elephants, pigs, llamas, snakes and all kinds of amazing animals. The
humans were so grateful to have been given such splendor to live amongst,
that they decided to work extra hard to put the fertile lands to good use, and
to obey the few rules that DawnDo gave them. The golden wheat shone in
the bright sunlight, the fruit trees were dew-laden and plentiful, and the
blooming flowers pronounced such beauty, that it became an ultimate sin
for a person were to pluck one from its natural surroundings.
For thousands of years the earth progressed greatly, the crops became
more abundant and the humans were proud of their accomplishments.
Throughout the years, though, DawnDo had become overconfident in her
creations and began to watch them less and less, as the years rolled by.
One day,...
