PORTRAIT OF A WOMAN IN TIDAL WATER by Russell Streur

Johns Creek November 23 2014

Morning comes
In grape and saw palmetto
The wonder of her hips
The curve of her breasts

And she moves in tidal water
Through ebb and salt
Umber into fig
In the pull of moon and earth

With her feet in the mud
And fish between her legs
Azo to cerulean
Milk of coconut on her tongue

One part ibis
One part sun.
