The young swallow, Twelson sat on the branch watching his fellow birds swirl though the late afternoon sky catching the small night bugs as they also took to the sky preparing for their evening flights. He looked down a few branches and saw Wisowl watching the swirling birds as well. Wisowl was the sage old member of their group with many a story to tell the younger swallows of distant and fascinating lands.
Twelson flew down to rest on a limb withing speaking distance to the revered member of the group to asked him a question but not actually land on the same limb. One did not disturb the limbs of the revered members of the group.
“Master Wisowl, do our journeys ever take us to the glowing ball in the sky?”
Quietness engulfed the two as Wisowl pondered the best way to explain the heavens to the young swallow. After some time, the glowing ball began to slowly slip towards the line where the sky met the land. Stretching out his wings and wrapping them closer around his body he looked toward Twelson as he began to speak.
“The glowing ball is beyond the line where the sky meets the land. It is located in the second heaven with many other fabled bodies much like the night ball that lights the sky once the glowing ball goes beyond the line.”
“Have you ever been able to get to the line to look over it into the sky?”
“No, the line moves ever before you leading you onward as you follow the land before it meets the sky. I do not think the maker of all things needs us to go beyond that line.”
“Is there more sky beyond the second heaven?” asked young Twelson.
“Only the third and final heaven where the maker of all things lives. It is there where all questions will be fully and finally answered.”
The two sat quietly as the last bit of light from the glowing ball slipped beyond the line and darkness surrounded all the land.
