A New Morning
I thought I would try a bit of prose and something a little more cheerful.
A shaft of sunlight warmed her body, as she slowly awoke from a deep sleep.
Murky images had crowded her dreams, but the gentle rain had washed away the disturbing visions. Stretching luxuriously, she swung her feet over to the side of the bed and slid into her slippers. Smiling, she padded over to the balcony and threw open the doors. The morning greeted her, freshly washed and laced with the scent of flowers and she could hear a family of sparrows chittering above her. The sun a golden disk in an azure sky, peeking shyly around downy clouds. Sighing contentedly, she breathed deeply of the fragrant air. It was full of promise and she relished the feeling. A glowing future stood before her, framed in hope, the shadows of the past banished with the radiant rays of dawn.
