Snow Sun

to dive into the water,
The sun shines warmest
though the cold air.

No matter the time of year,
burning up your back as you walk,
as the chill nips at your fingers.
As it bites at your ears.
And yet, the sun,
so often hiding behind the 
clouds in the sky,
would have you believe
that it is August.
That it is time
to dive into the water,
to hide from the heat.

But it lies.
Or perhaps is just confused.

Maybe in those moments,
where its rays cut through
the air that holds breath
like one would hold bubbles
in the bath. Delicately,
but not forever.

In that second,
with Helios's hand on 
your back,
you can relax 
against the cold,
and just let it all blow by.
