Skinny dipping at Lady Falls

One mile into the wood
we find the moon-bathed pool.
I place the blanket on the ground
and start to undress, you hesitate
gazing anxiously around.
'Maybe this is not such a good idea.'
But it’s on my bucket list to do.
I leave my clothes in a neat pile
and slip into the silky blackness.

The ice-cold depths steal my breath
but soon I’m high on the sensation
of swimming with unfettered skin.
I beckon you in, but you want none of this.
So with a flash of my new silver-scaled tail
I swim away leaving you floundering.
