Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 72 Here Comes The Sun

Here comes the sun

I love my friend the sun.

I lift my face to it's brightness.

I unfurl for it's warming caress.

I stretch my length to try to draw closer to it's rays.

Some say I am golden like the sun.

I need the rain.....

but I prefer the sun,

mused the Sunflower.

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.
