December 27 sunrise and thinking maybe Icarus had brothers?
What if Icarus did not drown when he fell into the sea. What if he emerged as a shore bird made of all those feathers he collected. Or maybe a moray eel who harnessed the sun’s light to slither and glow. There are all sorts of biofluorescent creatures in the depths of the ocean. Maybe he taught them not to get too close to the sun, so they pushed the ocean floor deeper, deeper until they were as far away as the sandy bottom would let them go.
