 ramblings and things

By Moonlight

Moonlight so bright he felt It should
Have cast shadows on her  skin
As she walked naked to the pool
And slid gracefully in.
Scarcely a ripple on the surface
As it enfolded  her  skin
Parted to allow her progress as
Each arm stroke thrust in.

A pagan water nymph
Under the light of the moon
A performance that sadly
All over too soon.
Robed and concealed
She towelled flowing hair
Unconscious of the fact
Anybody else had been there.

One last look at the pool
Then pulling her robe tight
Walked into the house
And inside for the night,
Innocent of the fact
She'd been on display.
The Watcher,  the show over
Slipped carefully and quietly away

An unplanned walk
On a moonlit summer night
Giving  the watcher
Brief, unexpected delight.
The rippless pool, flat and still
Glistened, shimmered and shone
Until a passing cloud drifted in
And the moon for a while was gone
