A refreshing bath

standing still like an iceberg standing partly submerged
frozen in the moment
against the rich sky-blue hue parted by clouds

partly submerged halfway into water
wet and cold as hairs stand erect
whiskers and pink snort

breathing above water
startled by the intrusion
of the man with the lens

in a refreshing bath
blissfully oblivious to time and tide
underwater in unperturbed grace
