The Bajang Child Swinging the Moon (25)

My son, on this night of champak flowers, I leave you to nature. I believe that nature will be able to take care of you more perfectly than your mother could.

“My son, what should I give you to remember me? Oh god, show me your generosity so that I can give my son a token of my love for him," Dewi Sokawati called.

Nature heard Dewi Sokawati's request. The moonlight shone through the fabric of night. A glimmer gave enough light for Dewi Sokawati see the falling campaka (champak) flowers. Best of all, as the champak flowers fell, a ray of the evening light suddenly snaked down to fall in front of Dewi Sokawati, turning into a length of thread. Taking the night’s thread, she arranged the champak flowers that fell earlier. In a moment, it became campakamala, a necklace of champak flowers.
