The Retired Bloke

One Toe at a Time

One toe at a time

Gingerly entering the water

Shivers running down my spine

As I enter the pool at sunrise

Bravely I go in deeper

Deeper into the blue glistening water

Looking so inviting

But biting back with every step

Holding my breath I take the plunge

Submerge into the abyss

A refreshing start to the morning is this!
