Poetry Pantry #244

Poppy's Photographs from Greece -- Paths



Tree trunks sprouting from underneath a paved road, 
climb up sienna facades.

Grassy paths and steps amid ancient Roman tombs,
above the village of Agios Thomas.


A path leading to the Monastery of Panagia Pantanassa.

Follow the pretty brick road; most lead to cafes and taverns.


  A gravel road leading into the olive groves.

A path of clover, under a connected canopy of olive branches.


Greetings, Poets! We have finally entered spring, and I must say I am not unhappy to leave the season of winter behind.  Spring is always such an optimistic season, I think, as things begin (slowly at first) to green up again.

Today we have Poppy to thank for the wonderful pictures from Greece.  She chose the theme of "paths," so all of her photos involve a path!  Lovely, aren't they? Thanks, Poppy.

Be sure to check out Rosemary's The Living Dead:  Here Comes the Flood by Daevid Allen, if you haven't read the article.  Daevid definitely can make a scene come alive!

Monday be sure to stop in and read Sherry's newest interview of a fairly new poet to our scene, one who also takes beautiful photographs.  Do you think you know who she is? (Smiles.) Stop back and see!

Susan, for this week's Midweek Motif, will have us write about the prompt "Captivity." Stay tuned.

I am still looking for photographs from your part of the world.  Let me know if you have some!

Share a poem with us below by linking it using Mr.Linky, and visit others who also link.  Enjoy!

    Happy Sunday everyone! I am having some technical difficulty at my end today. Mr. Linky doesn't seem to accept my attempt to link. I have tried several times but always a failure. I will try again later, but here's my poem:

  11. I want to walk on paths in Greece! Soon. I have been engaged with working on a project with a friend and rarely here, Mary, but I am taking this morning off to be here with you and my coffee. I will go to Meeting for Worship this afternoon. My poem reflects the times as I haven't written anything new this week.

  15. Oh my, I am so old I forgot to check in this morning, LOL........am having some lovely reads this morning. Thank you, fellow poets. I have Diana Krall on in the background and the sun is trying to peek thru the fog, the same is going on in my brain. Happy Sunday! Poppy, your photos gladden my heart. Each one takes me on a lovely ramble through the sunny pathways of Greece. A gift just to gaze upon them. Kids, Poppy is our featured poet/photographer tomorrow so I hope you all will come enjoy her wonderful life - and love - story!

    2. Sherry, you are hilarious! The best route out of that fogginess, for me, is via Norah Jones' light; the sweet songstress can sing anyone out of the dark!

      Looking forward to our tete-a-tete, tomorrow!

      Happy Sunday!
