Glow Worms and Glimmer Twins


Today’s WordPress Daily Prompt is Glimmer.  According to Merriam Webster glimmer means:

a to shine faintly or unsteadily
b to give off a subdued unsteady reflection 

But when I think of the word glimmer it brings to mind a musical theme. First, there was that good old glow worm the Mills Brothers sang about in the 1950s:

Shine little glow-worm, glimmer, glimmer
Shine little glow-worm, glimmer, glimmer

By the late 1960s, a new musical reference had been attached to glimmer, in the writing duo of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards who often called themselves the Glimmer Twins. Perhaps odd that a word that describes a visual effect should remind me of auditory experiences. But ain’t words fun?

  1. Good job! Perfect illustration of the word, but definitely not my favorite song.
