Sagittarius 20. A clear, yellow gem fallen from heaven.
(From “TheBook of Miracles”) : “It is told in the diaries of the poet Milon that the day after he had finished the first draft of his epic poem, “The Paradise” he was walking in a meadow secreted deep in the forests of Jabar, and, being tired lay himself down to rest, and as he was falling asleep a gem the size of a lizard’s egg fell from a cloudless sky onto the grass beside him.
“The gem was of a clear and perfect yellow, a color which seemed to sing to his eyes and in so doing brought to the poet’s ear a depth of silence allowing him to hear his inner voice like never before.
“Taking the gem to his abode he placed it by his manuscript and begin to rewrite his epic, and effortlessly made thousands of changes to the original poem, changes which he said he seemed to hear emanating from the gem.
“In three days his poem was finished. The gem was on display for many years in the Museum of Peth but disappeared one day. Many since then have reported discovering the gem in curious and unexpected places only to find that soon after it once again disappeared.
“Irnad is currently investigating these occurrences and the effects, both covert and obvious that they’ve had on the discoverers, and plans to write a book whose tentative title is “The Secret Life of the Gem of Milon.”
