mid-summer


mid-summer
a cloud passes a yacht
with hardly a wave

What a great play on the word "wave" ... several mental images popped up at once ... and then the right one just settled in. Such a rush!

O to be on a sailboat, sailing though a lovely summer's day.

The photographic and word images are so sunny and warm-- makes me long for summer and the occasional passing of a cloud.

Oh, summer! Thank you for evoking it so vividly - I am longing for the sun, and long, hot still days.

This is summer where I live! Have to say I am slow, though, didn't get the "wave" the first time I read it.

This flat sea cradles gently the boat, while the lonely cloud passes by waving farewell to those relaxed sailors!
