Today is gorgeous
The lake ripples
As the wind digs its nails
Into the blue sheen that protects it
I braze the now still waters surface with my hand
Freezing! Bitter! Lovely!
I stand back then jump…
Freezing pain never felt so good
As its deep blue water caresses me
Deeper and deeper inside the bowels of its cold heart…
