Minnie says, Sunrise and Sunset



Sunrise and Sunset


 
Sunset had no reason to be friends with Sunrise anymore. When both the sun and the moon in the sky favored day instead of night Sunset felt betrayed. Sunrise had become a bully, so she fled with her bright colors into space and finally found a friend who oohed and aahed at her. He had a strange little voice and was small and yellow. Adjusting his goggles, he began to sing:

"Don't be sad little sun,
You're not for everyone,
But now you can shine your light,
In the middle of the night."
He gazed at her through his goggles and she asked,
"What's a nice shell like you doing in space?"

"Chasing fairies," he said. "They love your colors." Tiny wings flew up to buzz between Sunset and her friend. They looked at each other and...

moved in closer....
Closer ....
Closer....

The fairy closed her eye and planted a wet, juicy kiss on the moon! The moon was embarrassed and vanished in an eclipse. But the sunrise was too bright and brought him out again.

The moon wept tears of silver. "No-one, but no-one," he said as he sobbed, "has ever kissed me before." The little shell and the fairy rushed to catch his tears which, cupped in their hands, they showed to Sunset before they threw the silver into space where the shimmering drops mixed with the beautiful shards of oranges, reds and purples that Sunset was releasing about her. The combination was magical and formed a rainbow bridge that stretched across space, stopping time just long enough for sunset and sunrise to become one.

Shell sat himself down on the moon, took off his goggles and turned to his fairy friend. “How long do you think they will stay together this time?”

“I give it a hundred years.” She twinkled and giggled as she flickered away into the rainbow.
Shell nodded and sighed at the moon. “You can stop crying now,” he said. Then he took out a small harmonica from his pocket and started to play.

Thanks to all of Minnies friends who helped put this gibberish together. Hope you enjoyed the end results.






Enjoy your week-end!
