Painting by Miranda Koerner.


She shakes and shimmies,

Moves and grooves,

miles under the surface,

Where few eyes can see.

But if you were to dive,

And go deep, deep below,

You would see pure joy

radiating from below.

Hair curling like wind,

Without a single breeze,

As the silver hoop winds around her,

like bangles on a wrist.

Bubbles of laughter drift up,

giggles popping one by one.

For if you were to glance down,

All you would see is shimmer,

joy in its purest form.


Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  I’ll reveal what I wore for Halloween…and what I’ll be wearing next Thursday!

*** And yes, the painting has real rhinestones and flowers on it. :)
