This post is my response to Jennifer Nichole Well’s One Word Photo Challenge: Summer.
Equating summer with the color green, when I saw this photo challenge I immediately thought of a day my husband and I spent kayaking on the Wallkill River earlier this year in July. It wasn’t a blue-sky-sunny day, but the light was such that much of the foliage glowed an amazing green in contrast to the dark water.
Although there is a slow current, the surface of the river was often still and reflective, its mirror-like quality surreal. In certain places it seemed as if we were gliding through glass which rippled to liquid with each stroke of the paddle.
(In case you’re wondering, I used upsidedowntext.com to flip the last line of my tanka above.)

Thank you Jennifer for the One Word Photo Challenge: Storm.
In response to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Bikes and Motorcycles, I’m posting three views of one lovely mosaic bike in Cape May, New Jersey. The bike is covered with seashells, sea glass and small pebbles.
Cheeks, by the way, is a great clothing store selling beautiful flax fiber clothing and fun tee shirts!
Thank you Cee for the challenge!
