Within water

A poem

I am a flame within water
Engulfed in bitter waves
I swim in waterfalls
And burn in black depths.

I exist surrounded
Submerged in the heart of torrents
I thrive for the cold
So I may temper the ice.

I embrace the angry currents
Break them against me
I warm the blues of the waves
Tuning their hues to create something new.

I am something alive among the cold
Something bright inside the layers of darkness
I am a candle in the water
A steady heat inside the frost.
