Harbour

It is raining and we are children and very happy. We’re wearing shorts, T shirts. It’s a warm rain and it doesn’t bother us at all. Everything we say makes us laugh.

I said you should be a comedian. Everything you say makes me laugh.

That’s good. Because that’s what I want to be.

He said these last words in a slow, careful way. You could tell that he meant it.

Then he left us and maybe it stopped raining and it was very black where we were standing next to the water where there were lots of little boats and the cliff rose in all its green glory to the black and purple sky.

  1. i like your story, Jonathan. "the world survived, because it was laughing" people say where i come from. i do believe that too, it is an important set of mind. i see how it gets "very black" when the laughter is gone, even if "it stopped raining" ... my way of reading it :)))
    thank you
