‘A Tale of Aladdin’

“How the Wind Tried to Steal the Shore”


 upon a time there lived a kindly prince named 'Aladdin' whom always dressed raggedly while on forays to the marketplace where he’d be found trying to sell his make-believe chariots; or mythical beast that could fly which nobody even hesitatingly thought to buy, or may've believed existed when he declared them invisible! "This chariot's invisible", he'd be openly heard to declare. And "this sleigh can fly"! Or perhaps the one that he saved for his best customers (which always opened their greedy purses' pocketbooks) "this fish becomes bigger as you try to dine"! He'd trample all the daylong trying to sell his mischievous wares of make-believe adventure to anyone that happened to listen or possibly believed as the sun settled into the faded sky, and fate"s fortuned challis hand encouraged him to seek shelter from the evening’s sweltering twilight by directing him to the house of a beautiful maiden named "Alambi" who declared to all that would listen: “I’ll buy this minstrel’s mythical song or make believe chariot that can fly for its highest bid or asking if some-one would tell me just one thing: "who stole the shore"? Not just a little dumbfounded by this strange request or all too impudence of a question, Aladdin scratched his head while trying to make sense of what seemed to be some daunted fate of an ill-fortuned omen or while trying not to become to hesitant with its all to obvious head-scratching conclusion. Then the lovely maiden was heard to say, "I'll give you just one hint"!

The clouds would, and the winds could, and the winds that covered the clouds should. And the mist would, and the clouds should; and the winds that covered the mist would. And the winds that covered the clouds that brought the rain in early spring when the lands were filled with green fields of clover, and blessed with the love of eternal blessing in the early morning between April and late October. When the stars were guided with the sails that covered the waters that left with the boats that went out with the tide and around the world that waved goodbye as it was seen leaving the mooring sometime early yesterday morning. So please tell me now “who stole the shore"? And "always keep smiling because you’ll never know who you’ll meet". . . ~ Aladdin Khanate 1269 A.D
