Poetry Friday is being held today at The Opposite of Indifference today.
Isn’t this a fabulous photo? Can you see the water striders? I received it for the “Summer Poetry Swap” from Keri at Keri Recommends.
And the poem brought me back to the days when I taught fifth grade. Those were the days that we went to overnight outdoor school. Pond study was the best for observing water striders. Keri captures the essence of water striders perfectly.
Thank you, Keri for this poem. My favorite line, “the whispering waves.”
