What's Cold Water To A Fiery Middle-Aged Man?

Waves are gently crashing
Sun is piercing the inconsiderable clouds
That's when you know it's time to dive
You're in the water now
Feeling different and holding your breath
Attentive fish remaining immobile
You know they want you to remain immobile too
So that your eyes will be their feed
But not today...
The water is cold but you keep on going
Because you're producing just enough fire
To keep it balanced
You keep on swimming and making splashes
Until your breath runs out...
