filles du soleil

Ever since I was little, I've been mesmerized by sunlight. Its warm, yellow rays that I couldn’t catch no matter how hard I tried. I remember when I was seven or eight, there was a moment when I just sat on the steps of the stairs facing the window before it. There, I let my face warm up with the morning light. I always wondered why my fingertips glow red whenever I put my hand against the rays, or why I can’t look directly at the sun and all its glory. My mood has to do with how sunny the day is even until now. I love how it warms me up and fills me with hope that today is a new day. I love how it feels against my skin and how it makes everything seem light and cheerful, nostalgic.

Grateful for my sisters who enjoyed the summer sun. Ensemble, nous sommes les filles du soleil.
