NPM #15

Today’s poem captures my favorite image from “When Green Becomes Tomatoes: Poems for All Seasons” by Julie Fogliano and pictures by Julie Morstad.  It may be a bit premature to share a summer poem, but as we’re all longing for that warmth and sunshine, I thought I might go ahead anyway.  The words capture the heat that can only be solved with water and the image caught me in both its simplicity and joy.  I can remember moments exactly like this as a kid (though in the ocean, not a river).
