Poetry Pantry #224

Sherry Blue Sky's Beautiful Tofino, British Columbia






Greetings, Poets!

Glad to see each of you here this week for Poetry Pantry.  It is always enjoyable for me to get to know you through your poetry; and I hope you feel the same.  Admittedly, I personally appreciate those with whom there is a feeling of reciprocity, which makes for a feeling of community.  I think we ALL tend to visit (after a while) people with whom we reciprocate.  I just don't GET people who link and enjoy visits, yet don't bother to visit others -- even those who spent time making comments on their poetry.

This week I am sharing a few of Sherry Blue Sky's photos from her recent trip to the place of her heart -- Tofino.  Enjoy.  If anyone else has photos from their area or interesting photos from somewhere you have visited, I'd like to feature them!  Let me know.

Be sure to visit Poets United Monday to see what Sherry Blue Sky  has planned to share.  Will it be a featured poet?  A featured blog?  Or a featured poem?

Glad to see there is always a  great turn-out for Midweek Motif.  We hope to see you this coming week for another challenging prompt by Susan Chast!  (And, ha, perhaps many of you have noticed that if you look at one week's prompt Susan gives  a clue about the following week's prompt as well, so you can get a head start.)

And on Friday, remember to see who Rosemary Nissen-Wade features on "I Wish I Had Written This" or  "The Living Dead."

Again:  I issue an invitation here to those of you who participate in Poetry Pantry.  If YOU have special photos that you would like me to feature some week, let me know what kind of photos you have.  There are participants here from many different cities, many different countries.  I think it is great fun to see different areas featured. I am especially interested in scenic views of your area or an area you have visited.  Send inquiries first to dixibear@aol.com letting me know what you have.  I am interested in city or country views - in your home area or places you have traveled.

Link your ONE poem.   Then leave a comment below. Then visit other poets.  And I will too.  (If I miss your poem, visit me, and I will visit you... I am like anyone else, appreciating reciprocity.) We ALL like comments, so if you link please DO spend time visiting others.  That is part of the fun as well.  We really like it if you link back to Poets United too, so we spread the Poetry Pantry word in the blogosphere.

Come back a few times on Sunday and Monday to see what's new.  Visit some strangers, and they will become new friends!  Making new friends and reading new poetry, what more could one want?

If you are on Facebook, look for us there as well. Join our site.  It is one more way to stay in touch!

And now...here is the procedure, for those who are new here:  Each Sunday we start a new post with a New Mr. Linky for you. This is so that you can post a link to a poem in your blog. The link will close Monday at 12:00 p.m. (CDT), but you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.

  3. beautiful pictures from Tofino. this beauty can be witnessed in the most simple, little mundane things of life. this is why i wrote this piece dedicated to a vibrant wonderful lady who has been given a small window to remain in this world before she journeys into her next existence.

  14. It is such a lovely spot. Thanks for posting them, Mary. I have been enjoying the wonderful poetry in the pantry this morning. I started my morning off lying in bed, eyes closed, listening to drops of water plop, plop, plopping....then went, "wait, that cant be right!" Sure enough, the roof was leaking - narrowly missing the half dozen books i have put together this year- which have now been MOVED!!!!!! Ken was up on the roof before morning coffee, and hopefully it wont leak again. I now have a lovely exposed rafter and insulation look going on on my ceiling. Never a dull moment.

  16. Very nice pictures. My wife and I visited Seattle and northwest Washington this summer, and we loved it. We didn't have a chance to make it up to BC and Vancouver Island, but that is on our list of things to do next time.
