Poetry Friday, Week 28: Chasing Summer
Molly at Nix the Comfort Zone has the Poetry Friday this week. She's thinking about summer using the mento text from Pat Schneider’s The Moon, Ten Times. It sparked a a poem for me.

Jone, what a great haiku and photo. I love your beautiful personification of summer. Yay to "elusive moments." I love wading on ocean ripples. You have sparked brain storming of a poem in my mind. Will work on it tomorrow. Thank you for always inspiring. :)

What a beauty...that moment that you took the photo and the moment you paired it with your haiku. It's a joy to read beauty like this.

Jone, you make me swoon for the ocean. Your poem and image are beautiful reminders to be in the moment and enjoy nature. Love this combo.

"attempt catching the shadows" is such an apt line for the photo. This is a beautiful photo and familiar scene. Your poem describes it very well.

Summer moments are elusive, as are the moments in time to capture perfect images and words. Perfect, Jone.
