Writing Visually

A red curtain
A red flapping curtain
A red flapping curtain with the bottom curling inward
A red flapping curtain with a ray of light that creeps in as the curtain curls inwards at the edge
A red flapping curtain with a ray of red, dying light creeping in as the curtain curls inwards all along the left.

A ray of light splayed across the woman who sleeps on the blue couch
A woman sleeping on a blue couch
[Blinking against the sudden light, she draws herself up on her elbow and gets up to go across the room]
A ray of light splayed across a blue couch
[The sun goes down. The woman stretches and turns on the light.]
A couch of a different colour.
A room of a different light.
