Sky Mist Woman by Adara Rosalie

A Maori Legend:

Hine-pokohu was known as the Sky Mist Woman. She had a sister Mine-Wai, The rain (specifically the rain when it falls in foggy weather) who dwelt with her in the sky.

Sky Mist woman fell in love with a mortal man and at Night, she decended to earth to vist her lover in secrecy. At dawn, her sister would call out to warn them that daylight was coming and they must return home least anyone suspect. Sky Mist Woman and her sister would return to the sky untill usk fell and they had dominion over the earth.

Sky Mist Woman warned her lover never to tell anyone of their trysts, but he did. Betrayed and Weeping tears of sorrow she never returned to him.

He searched and searched the valleys and mountains for her, untill he died.

After his death he became the rainbow that accompanies the mist, joined for enternity.
