PROMPT: Bread and Light

  • settling in front of the news with my mother
  • leaping at the sound of the kettle
  • sprinkling a few grains of sugar in my tea- for the act of sweetness more than the taste
  • wondering "is it too early to change into my pyjamas?"
  • half scolding my tongue on the tea
  • wishing i had a proper cup and saucer
  • daydreaming of being a victorian lady with a cup and saucer
  • consuming. absorbing. realising the news that flickers in front of my eyes. numbers, this many dead. this many suffering. numbers, this many vaccinated. shuddering with fear, exhaling with hope
  • hope
  • the light at the end of the tunnel
  • another cup of tea.

    I love this so much. You painted such a lovely moment. I actually wrote about tea for this prompt as well. lol. It's just one of those things I guess.
