Poetry Pantry #258

Photos of Boracay Islands, Philippines 
by Totomai








Good day, Poets!

Hope each one of you is enjoying a good weekend.  Today we can enjoy a second set of photos by Totomai.  Once again he shares pictures of Boracay Island, Philippines.  This is one of the most popular beaches in Southeast Asia.  


Totomai says,  "I want to share these photos I took in 2007, before I got my DSLR camera. I was using my Casio Exilim point and shoot camera then. There was a point that I was enjoying the post-processing style called 'orton.'  It's making the photos dream like. Some of the photos attached here are post-processed with orton."

Tomorrow Sherry Blue Sky has a real treat for us.  She is sharing a chat with Susan Chast on a subject that is close to Susan's heart.  It is a dynamic interview.  Please check back.

And for Wednesday, be thinking about Susan's theme of 'freedom' for the  Midweek Motif.

If you haven't read the poem "Parting" by Tanith Lee that Rosemary shared for her "The Living Dead" series, today is a good time to check back!  And next Friday, of course, stop back for a new  feature.  Will it be "The Living Dead" or "I Wish I'd Written This"?

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.

  4. Beautiful photos, Totomai!

    I didn't think I would have a new poem to share (and the old ones have been well viewed already) — but after all, there is something. I finished, just a little while ago, one I'd been working on for some little time. How nice to have The Poetry Pantry to share it with (or at). :-)

    Loving that sunset pic.

  12. Well totomai you are amazing no matter the camera....love these and their dreamy quality. Today it is chilly, windy and rainy reminding me of early spring or fall...certainly not summer. So an additional summer poem is called for to bring back the sun and heat. Hope you enjoy it and have a wonderful week!

    I will do my best to get around to folks today but it may be later in the week. My husband has injured his back so blogging has taken a back seat for now.

  23. Hi all - yes as I commented elsewhere these photographs are exquisite. I must apologize for not getting to everyone today. I have very good excuses - but frankly the loss in not getting to all the poets I love is my loss. Enjoy the beginning of a new week and a new month to come <3

  24. Oh and thank you for directing me to Rosemary's column on Tanith Lee - as I wrote I just met Tanith Lee and will now mourn her loss and find her work to read.

  25. My goodness! Look at all these poems and links! I've been out all day to three Quaker meetings and then a friend took me out to dinner and a movie for my 64th birthday which is tomorrow. I'm hearing that Beatles' song louder and louder. At age 25 I never imagined I'd get this old, but today I felt very young. I'm going to enjoy these poems a little at a time and read them throughout the week. Thank you!

  26. Mary,

    I returned from after week in Barcelona associated with business and some sightseeing. Glad to be home, especially after the dreadful terrorist attacks in Tunisia, during which time, so many people were killed and maimed. It brings me back to that fear I lived with in Northern Ireland too..My poem is influenced by these happenings.
