Four Guardian Beasts

The drought turned what was once green brown, then nothing.

The boy grew distraught. What was to become of his family?

Naively, he dug a well under the sun. Still, no water. The boy collapsed onto the cracked ground.

“Azure Dragon God of the East is no more. Rain would not come. Would you sacrifice your love for your family to bring rain to everyone on this land?”

Yes, he thought. Yes.

Black Tortoise of the North carried the boy to the Eastern Sea to become the next Azure Dragon God.

Rain came for everyone on this land once more.

  1. Yes! I love your weaving in a mythological reference – I was thinking of that myth when I saw this image and wondered if anyone else would consider it ❤ Thank you for joining us again this week ❤
