Their small faces were fixed on his every word. He was telling them the story of the petals
of salt and he paused momentarily, watching their eyes widen in anticipation. He told them
of the storms he endured at sea; storms so violent that when they passed, Mother Nature
felt great sorrow for inflicting such cruelty upon the sailors. To calm their nerves, she would
conjure beautiful clouds that danced above the boats in the shapes of flowers after the
storm had passed. Exhausted and shivering in their wet clothes, the sailors would be frozen
in wonder, standing on the deck of the boats, necks craned upwards, watching the clouds
spin and churn into botanical wonders of the heavens. The children looked to the sky and he
used his fingers to trace the imaginary dance of the petals of salt.
