Cold Water Swim

Darkness greets us as we shiver on the edge of the deck.
The water is deep blue, placid and glassy. It looks cold and uncaring.
Lane lines, red and white, parallel the black line markers under water and seem to beckon.
The whistle blows and in one swift leap, the water embraces us, chills us and finally soothes us as our minds turn inward.
Swirls of steam rise into the dark morning sky.
