Flash Fiction: Sunshine swim
By Federica Belli.
Cold. The water slid on her face, a smooth mask she did not feel like leaving.
Fighting the friction, she tried to life her eyelids.
She knew it’d hurt. It was one of those small fights she kept fighting everyday, her daily dose of discomfort.
But man, was it worth it. Light blue, just like her mother’s eyes, the water was constantly dancing with the sun rays in a masterfully orchestrated choreography.
A tango she wanted to join everyday.
But all she could do,
as her mornings unveiled so slowly,
was to admire that astonishing symphony of beauty.
