Beam

The beam of sunlight shines through the window, a golden glow suffusing onto the carpet, broken up by the shadows from the window panes. The motes of dust floating in the air are curiously visible in the sun, dancing and whirling in odd and unexplainable patterns, seemingly unrelated to any wind currents in the room.
A cat stalks across the carpet, poised and alert, stepping into the beam of light and pausing, turning around and around and then finally, finally lying down in the solitary ray of light. It kneads the carpet gently with its claws, claiming the space, claiming the light and the warmth. It curls up and closes its eyes and sleeps, warm and happy and languid in the beam of sunlight.
