November Doodle

My CLmooc friends doodle every day. Today I share the vase and story of character Juniper in my NaNoWriMo novel, So Says the Moonstream.

Excerpt: Juniper’s Vessel and Stones

Jade smiled and nodded back, and kept smiling while listening to her sister who stood next.

“I’d like to share this small vessel, a part of the family for generations.” 

She held it up in the palm of her right hand. It was about four inches in diameter and seemed to be similar to the vessel found at the archeological dig. 

She continued, “As you can see, it is similar to the discovered vessel, but it’s inside is red-orange, a bit of inner earth and a bit of the sun. And, there is a lavender colored seed above the middle black seed— it’s a june grass seed. 

And inside,” she turned the pot upside down in her other hand, letting fall two tear-drop shaped stones, one teal and one translucent grey. 

“No, it’s not a dragon stone, but the family has passed both these down over the years with a short story:

When the blue dragon calls
When the world’s brightness falls
When the stories seem in parts
And troubles spurt and start
When fairies flash together
Even day’s with sunny weather
When cornflowers in the wild lands
Are thick and blue in wide bands
Gather them in quiet prayer
Remember, we together care
And listen for the dragon’s signs
And follow when the path does shine.

She finished the song with, “The dragon has called Juniper.” And she handed the vessel to Juniper, who carefully received it and placed it in the center of the low table.
