Witnesses to a Drowning

Halyards scream with wind
at waves scribbling
on flat canvas of beach
and fishwife screech
of black-headed gulls
fills hissing sails.
Egrets erupt from the creek,
white against dun marsh,
shoved along by the gale,
whirling, flickering snowflakes
in a frozen sky,
peering curiously
at the floating face
in a blizzard of white lace.

Kim M. Russell, 2017
