light + day

by elizestrydom


While it was still dark I hailed a cab and closed my eyes as we drove towards the seaside. My feet touched the sand at 5:45, two minutes after first sun. I watched as the light grew and slowly blanketed the ocean and the land and continued its journey across the sky. It was the Spring Equinox. A balance of light and dark, night and day. Comfort in the knowledge that soon, very soon, the light would outlast the darkness.
