Good day, Poets!

Hope each one of you is enjoying a good weekend.  I was in Washington D.C. this past week, so the photos are mine.  I will share more of them on occasion.  Next week you will again see some photos by Totomai, which I know everyone will look forward to.

Tomorrow Sherry Blue Sky has an interview with a Canadian poet many of you will be familiar with. Please return on Monday to find out who.

And on Wednesday for Midweek Motif Sumana will be prompting us to write a poem about 'time,' something that we cannot escape, something that seems to move altogether too fast.

And next Friday, of course, stop back for Rosemary's feature.  Will it be "The Living Dead" or "I Wish I'd Written This"?  Stop back and see.

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.

  5. Good morning all...our weather has been wonderful and actually spring-like so lots to do in the garden, but I will be around later to read all the lovely poems linked here....Mary I love visiting DC and would love to again as it has been many years and one can never see it all. My husband has never been to DC so it would make a great long weekend trip one of these days....great shots. Did you have a favorite spot?

    1. Oh, that is hard to say, Donna. I really enjoyed visiting each of the Memorials. I was moved by all of them, but especially the Korean War Memorial. Being INSIDE the Supreme Court Building awed me. The National Mall was gigantic. (Smiles). We had a long wait to get into the Holocaust Museum, but it was worth while & saddening. The Metro and busses were very efficient, and all in all it was easy to find one's way around in DC!

  7. Mary,

    Thank you for sharing those wonderful photos from your visit to Washington DC. I had an opportunity to go there a few years ago, but was unable to travel. I'm hoping that at the next opportunity, I'll get to see it for real! My husband took many photographs too; I particularly was moved by the Korean War Memorial.
    My poem is hopefully a move towards optimism...
    Happy Sunday and New Week to All,
    Eileen

    1. Hi Eileen! Do visit if you have another opportunity. It was the Korean War Memorial that I found most moving of all of them, for some reason!

  11. Hi Mary -

    I really would like to go there. Most of the times, I am assigned in Houston so no time to visit New York. LOL!

    To everyone, I am sharing my recent trip in one the islands here in Japan. It is one of my favorite trips ever.

    :-)

  19. I am poking along behind everyone....Wild Woman moves slowly these days. Welcome back, Mary. It must have been wonderful to see all of those sights. I recently read a memoir by a woman who managed to escape from North Korea, and her life of hardship is unimaginable..........it is called Stars Between the Sun and Moon. It is astonishing how very different North and South Korea are from each other. The memorial must have been very moving. Happy Sunday, all. Teetering into the Pantry now, will make my way, if slowly, on and off today. I sit at my desk so many hours a day my neck is actually getting tired from holding my head up!

  20. My internet is out. Will catch up later. Thanks to those who have visited me first.

  21. With the internet out, you get a little time for yourself. Thank you for the DC pics. I haven't been there in a long time. Have a good week Mary.

  22. Well, my internet is back; and I have commented on most poems. I didn't comment on those of people for whom I am doubtful they will return comments. Sometimes it amazes me that people visit a site and do not, out of courtesy, respond to the poem of the facilitator of that site....even when the facilitator comments on their poem. If someone visits me, I will always visit in return. Obviously some just come to receive visits, and...well...my time is valuable too.
