Skin
The moon shines through navy clouds
She wades and shines
Dark hair tied back
Shoulders glow pale in night shade
Goddess revealed in water
Skin

Waves
Lapping at rounded hips
Dipping and turning
But she is still and around her flowing
Yellow-grey reflected in tiny dimples
In the sheen
Waves

Eyes
Watching and absorbing
In the face of beauty
This is life
Natural and abundant
In the peace
In the dark
In the water
Eyes

Hands
Resting flat
Rippling surface
Touching the cool
Caressing the wake
Feeling the world
Hands

Night
Arousing the water
Drawing the magic
Dancing its ritual around
The lunar orb
Accepting sacrifice
Night

Tide
The sky goddess
Envy abounds
Waves crash and beauty is tossed
Pulled beneath
Drowning once more
In the tow
Tide
