Beneath the waves, glittering in the
is a place more wondrous than we
can possibly imagine.
Coral spires rise upwards reaching for
but never breaching the surface.
Castles formed from discarded sea shells.
A kingdom of wonderment and grace.
Among these spires and castles, the citizens:
The Merpeople of myth
living safely in this subterranean refuge
far from human eyes, far from danger.
A mermaid of great intelligence and even
greater curiosity swam to just below the
surface and felt the sunlight’s warmth
gently and tenderly touch her face.
The sunlight was so powerful and determined
that it broke through the waves, dividing into
an enchanting spectrum that bathed the mermaid
in its multitude of light.
When she returned to the kingdom below she
was no longer a mere mermaid, she was a
creature of legend, transformed by the light.
Her hair had become a rainbow and she had become so much more.
