The water flows as streams, over rocks.

The water flows over rocks and

into a

large deep pool
of icy cold water.
I wade slowly
from the edge
of the pool and
my toes are ice cubes
my legs are chilled
then my waist and
my chest and
the water is so cold
I dive under
quickly before
I change
my mind and
when I surface
I gasp for air
but none will come because
my lungs are frozen.

    This is really fantastic, I got your concept straight away and I really felt the way water flows.

    I love how you put it such that I could feel myself getting down, down, down… with the icy cold water!
