for Miriam Hurdle at the Shower of Blessings blog!
When the wind came she floated, floated out to sea. Those who are invisible breathe air just like we do, but their breaths take an entire day to register. It is in the wind that their exhalations take form. Eternally she floated, sometimes blue, sometimes yellow, sometimes white, and the days went into weeks went into years before she returned. At the moment of return she found it all changed, the pearl water beaded on the surface of her heart and along the freckles of the sand.
