Here Comes the Sun


She was tired of reading on the couch, and she had read in bed for too long she was starting to get worried about bed rash. So she decided to sit on the carpet, with her head resting on the sofa behind her. Very soon she realised that she loved this spot. It would be her new reading spot, the sunshine coming in from the large window behind her flooding the pages of the novel, and surrounding her with a lovely warmth.

***

She realised her book was not shining anymore. She put it down and stared at the carpet infront of her. Lying across it was a small rectangle of golden light. The carpet had stolen her sunshine. How good had I been to the carpet, she thought. Treading on it softly and never spilling anything on it, ever. And now, how rude of it to rob me of my sunshine. She snapped out of this reverie and looked back at the carpet, puzzled. The size of the sunshine had shrunken considerably so that it was now a mere strip of light. She watched as it continued to get smaller and smaller, until finally it was gone altogether.

***

She pushed her book aside and thought she'd write instead. The sun would be back tomorrow.

The sun would be back tomorrow.

yes, indeed. it is going to be back tomorrow too. very interesting piece, i interpreted the sun as the hope that humans need, which comes out everyday. as if there is always hope everyday.

I enjoyed your post, and I am glad that i have visited your blog.

me likes it. you should write some more. i think i need to discover a reading spot. I can't seem to find one. bed makes me sleep ... and so does the couch.

Pretty and a little melancholy. A case of the whole sunset vs. sunrise thing? I've always preferred the former.

I've been having a serious case of Beatlemania these past few days, this sort of ties in with that.

That was simply BEAUTIFUL! It somehow reminded me of Woolf's way of writing, only a little bit less complicated.
