Creative Writing: Origin of the Big Dipper

Once their was a old couple who lived in a village near the country-side.

The village they lived in didn't have a lot of food. The couple had a chicken

who had just had seven baby chicks. One day a monk came to the village to teach

the people there because they had very poor or no education. The monk had not

eaten all day and said that he was very hungry. The people in the village

panicked because they were so poor and barely had enough food to support

themselves. They didn't want to anger him because they knew if they did they

would also anger the Gods. The only source of food was the chicken the old

couple had. At first the couple didn't want to kill it, but then they thought of

what might happen if they angered the monk. Once the mother of the seven chicks

found out that she was going to die, she went to tell the oldest of the seven

chicks about it and told him to take care of his brothers and sisters. The

couple filled a pot with water and started to boil it. Once the water was ready

they put the mother chicken in when she was still alive. The little chicks had

just seen their mother die and suffer, so they were really sad. The oldest one

was so sad that he jumped in the pot right after her mother did and the rest

followed him. The monk saw this and felt sorry for them and felt that it was his

fault. He made the little chicks who cared so much for their mother into stars

in the sky in order to honor them. The constellation that the stars form now are

known as the Big Dipper.
