The Myth of The Four Seasons

Updated on September 15, 2011
Source

For thousands and thousands of years, the history of the four seasons had been looked upon as an ecological change in the position of Earth. However, there is a momentous history behind this ambiguous mystery. What defines our humanitarian approach to one another is certainly not just an ecological change; it is the story between the sun and the cloud, which later, scientists obscured with onerously trifle research and contributed them to what we call today "The four seasons of the year;" this is the myth of the four seasons that no one had ever heard of.

Summer

Once upon a century, Earth lived in constant harmony of love, care, and peacefulness. Until one afternoon, the cloud asked the sun to decrease some of her furious glares upon our beloved Earth. With dignity, the sun refused causing a fight to break out between herself and the cloud. With a scornful glare, the indignant sun raised her head and said "You cannot stop me cloud; I'm strong and glorious. Do whatever you can, but you know that you won't be able to subvert titanic powers like mine." The cloud got miffed and started planning the onset of a colossal battle that will never be forgotten in the history of Earth.

Autumn

To start his plan, the cloud gathered a gigantic army of other clouds and explained to them how plants and animals had been dying because of the sun's glares. In order to save Earth, their scheme was to blur the sun's eyes while the Chief of Winds sends his mighty blows upon her. A few days after this rigorous planning, the framed scheme was put into action. Everyone of these universal creatures worked strenuously until the end of this disastrous combat. The arrogant sun was exposing all her tremendous powers against the clouds, but with the Chief of Winds blowing upon her, the sun's monstrous body was casted away to a far planet, where she was lost and all alone.

Winter

To commemorate and celebrate their magnificent victory, the clouds cried and screamed to Earth "We have defeated the razer of your plants, animals, and humans. With our tears, your wounds will be healed and your deceased will revive." As the clouds cried, their tears came down as rain and all the living organisms danced elatedly and honored the clouds and The Chief of Winds for their tremendous work.

Spring

However, one day, the sun found her way back to Earth. Shamefully and dishonored, she lowered her head and said to the universe: "I have never seen Earth as happy as she is today. I have disgraced the definition of true love, therefore, I am ready to do whatever I can to maintain this happiness." With pleasure and delight, the clouds, The Chief of Winds, and the sun mended in an intertwined relationship of love, care, and peacefulness.

This is the history behind the ecological mystery of the four seasons. The sun had an absolute undefeated power that she abused with tyranny, which according to scientists is known to happen in the season of "summer." When the clouds asked her to decrease some of her powers and battled against her, scientists and sophisticated scholars acknowledged this battle by the name "autumn." Thereafter, when the clouds conquered the battle and cried, this was interpreted by the name "winter." In the end, all these universal creatures lived happily in the season of "spring" until summer came and restarted a whole new conflict.
