Poetry Pantry #236


Photos from Korea - Totomai














Greetings, Friends!  Good to see you this Sunday.  Can you believe January is almost over?  Before long it will be spring here in the Northern Hemisphere.  Smiles.

This week we are featuring more photos taken by Totomai Martinez.  This week they are photos from Korea.  Totomai told me that he often travels to Korea for work!  Again, what beautiful photos.  If you go to Totomai's web page, you will see that he also has a photography book out.  Congratulations, Totomai!!

I hope those of you who post a poem will also stop in and make a comment.  It is nice even if you stop by with a 'hi' and tell us about the weather in your part of the world.   Or, if you are in the midst of winter maybe you can tell us what keeps you enthused as you endure the long winter.   And, hey, who will you support for the Super Bowl?

Be sure to watch Sherry's interview on Monday, Susan's Midweek Motif on Wednesday, and Rosemary's feature on Friday.  You never know what you will find when you check out Poets United. And, if you are not following it already on Facebook, you might want to do so.  That is where you can often find out first what's happening!

Link your one poem with Mr. Linky below.  Visit other poets.  And have a good week!!

  22. Oops, have been sitting here making the rounds all morning and forgot to check in.....better late than never. I have some good old tunes from Back In the Day - my parents' day - on the stereo and am blissfully drifting......such beautiful songs, back then, the music of my childhood, the background of my parents' love story. Happy Sunday, fellow poets.

  28. “He has been here for candidates and he hasn’t forgotten us, even when he wasn’t running,” Rath said. air jordan shoes australia  Romney would be the first losing nominee to run for president again since Richard Nixon in 1968. His allies have sought to cast this in a positive light. “Experience is a great advantage,” said one senior pro-Romney strategist, “like trying to get to the air jordan australia  Super Bowl having been in the playoffs before is an advantage.”
