Poetry Pantry #253


Photos of Moab, Utah, USA
by C. C.

"The colors in Moab are absolutely stunning and breathtaking."

A Moab View

"I took this picture early in the morning because the subdued colors made it so contrary to what I typically think of when I think of Moab, Utah.....and because the clouds were so very low in the sky."

"It always boggles my mind to see anything green, or really anything at all, growing out of the hard, dry, red ground in Moab. It seems such an unlikely place for anything to grow and yet things grow. I love the metaphorical meaning that can be found in that!"






Good day, Poets!

Hope each one of you is enjoying a good weekend. Today I am sharing photos taken by C.C. in Moab, Utah.  Beautiful, aren't they?

Tomorrow Sherry Blue Sky has another fascinating interview with one of our very loyal poets. You all will be familiar with him, I am sure.  He's here most every Sunday.  Curious? You will just have to check back.

And on Wednesday for Midweek Motif Susan will encourage us to write on the subject of "Weeds and Weediness."  I like thinking where one can go with THAT prompt.  So many meanings to consider!

And, if you haven't read it already, be sure to scroll one page back and read Rosemary's interesting article on the poet Jim Cole and his dog Cheeba.  If you are a dog lover, don't miss it!

With no further delay, hope that you will enjoy the Pantry today.  Leave a short comment when you post; and be sure to visit the links of others.  I will look forward to reading what you share.
