Marian at Rainforest Creek

Long dark hair, slim back,
she crouches by the stream.

The small brown ducks,
the towering trees,
the rounded stones, shallow water,
the weeds, the patches of sunny sky
spread themselves before her —

surround, encompass her:
her natural habitat.

  1. A woodland nymph - the title intrigues too.

    1. Unposed photo — she didn't know I was taking it.

      The title is not strictly accurate, but to say 'Beside the creek that runs through the Rainforest Café' would have been such a mouthful, lol.
