Day – beginning and end

What a beautiful day we’ve had. I awoke to a bright sliver of sunlight streaming through a gap in my blackout curtains. Motes of dust dancing in the golden light, whirling, twirling, bright against the darkness. I think I’d like to be like that, a speck of joy-filled brightness, lighting up my sphere of life.
And now at the end of the day, the sun is sinking fast, a glowing orb sliding down behind the houses at the end of the street, windows like molten gold, roof edges a stark silhouette against the bright sky. But the bright sky rapidly fades to salmon pink.
I can no longer see my keyboard; I switch on the light; and the day is gone.
