Poetry Pantry #249


Poetry Pantry #249
Photos by Conscious Cacophony


Rocky Mountains in Alberta, Canada.


Just outside the town of Canmore, Alberta.

Grassi Lake at the top of Grassi Lake trail, also outside of Canmore, Alberta.

There is something so peaceful, to me, about a bench by a lake! And a log bench...even more so!

From the top of Sulfur Mountain looking down at the town of Banff, Alberta and the Banff Springs Hotel.

Greetings, Poets!

I don't know about you, but I am looking forward to a feast of poetry today.  I know many poets are winding down their participation in NaPoWriMo. I am sure some will be sad when it is over and others will welcome a more relaxing May!

Thanks to Conscious Cacophony for the beautiful photos today!!  They make me want to visit these mountains for sure.

I think by now most of you know what Poets United has to offer.  Besides the Pantry on Sunday and Monday, we also have Susan Chast's Midweek Motif on Wednesday of each week.  It is pretty cool how she always gives us a hint the week before of the following week's prompt.  Sherry Blue Sky and Rosemary Nissen-Wade also have their Monday and Friday features.  Just keep checking back, and you are bound to discover something interesting here.

If you would like photos from your area (or from a vacation you have taken) to be featured in the pantry, do let me know.   Both CC Champagne and Sara McNulty have answered my call.  Smiles.

So, please link one poem below.  Also stop in and say hello to us in the comments.  And, please visit other poets who link, as we all enjoy comments.  Have a nice Sunday / Monday!

  6. It is a day of perfect weather in my parts. Wishing everyone a peaceful Sunday, without forgetting the survivors of the earthquake in Nepal. My thoughts are with them in their time of tragedy.

  22. Brautiful idea and concept. I was in the Rockies in the middle 1980s, in Banff, and on Sulphur mountain at 4 am on a cold dark January morning. Wonderful
