A short little love story
The Sun longed for the Moon. The moon felt so cold and isolated, it could not think or feel of anything else.

The Sun held so much love for the moon and yearned to ease this horrible discomfort the moon continually endured, it could think of nothing else. So great was the love it held for the Moon that with each thought a deep passion began burning at it's core. Each thought of love continually fed a growing fire in it's heart, it's core, it's being.

Thoughts of the Moon became all consuming for the Sun and it could not hold this love it felt inside any longer......

With a blinding illumination of light the Sun burst into a great burning hot radiance, a resounding radiance which left no space throughout the entire Galaxy untouched. An engulfing radiance so powerful that it reached out and embraced the Moon, warming it with all of it's magnificence. The Moon had never once it's entire existence felt such love and warmth. It's joy was so great that it begun to spin around and around, bathing itself in the Suns warming embrace.

From that moment on the Moon never again felt coldness or alone. To this day the love in Sun's heart for the Moon beats strong and radiant in all of it's splendor.

As time went by, one by one, other planets could feel this radiance and sought out it's source. At last they reached the origin of their desire, The Sun. Each, with their own moon, began placing itself in an orbit rotating around the Sun. And so it is that Love continues to grow and spread throughout existence, where ever that may be.
