Winter Prelude

I float warm 
on the surface.
 Light and heat still penetrate.
These waning days
leave chill depths
biting toes that drift too deep,
stirring swirls of shivers
skipping down spines
dancing out the tips 
of my fingers
trailing eddies of chill 
in my tenuous wake.
In sunlight Summer lingers
but shadowed places
tell winter tales,
a season already in prelude.

We may have taken the last swim of the summer this week. New words commemorate the occasion.
