Rusalka

Photographed by Florine van Rees.

Staring into her own reflection in the still waters, looking through the mirror of her soul. Nina de Raadt photographed by Florine van Rees.

I look at him and brush gently
the hair and water of my arms
he shakes with fear and looks intently
At my seductive, luscious charms
With eager hands I wave and beckon
nod quickly, smiling from afar
and shoot within two flashing seconds
into still water like a star

I look at him, my hair I brush
Smile, send him kisses sweet and wild

Play with the waves- caress and splash-
now laugh, now whimper like a child

moan tenderly, call louder
here boy, here boy! To me, to me!
Then vanish in to limpid water
And all is silent instantly

Rusalka
