She Worshipped the Sun from the Shadows
I avoid the direct light most of the time. I like the way it makes the henna shine red in my hair and the way the warmth sinks down deep, giving me the comfort of a blanket wrapped over my shoulders on a cool starry night, reminding me of the bright days when I would stand in line at water fountains, feeling parched until the total satisfaction of fresh fluid renewed my young soul.
Nonetheless, I prefer the shadows. With them, sunlight can dance through trees and illuminate a path. #sheisthree
