Good Sunday, Poets!

Hope each one of you is enjoying a good weekend. This past week I was in New York City!  What a busy place.  I have shared a few photos above & can share more as time goes on.  I must say that if anyone gets to New York City they should visit the National September 11 Museum.  Very moving and sobering.

Do any of you have photos that you would like to share, ones that I could use in the Pantry?  If so, let me know!  Leave me a note in the comments perhaps.

Do stay tuned to Poets United this week.  Sherry has prepared an interesting Poems-of-the-Week post for Monday, which features poems of three poets you know well.  (Keeping you in suspense!) Don't miss it!

 Susan has chosen the prompt 'Unity' for this Wednesday's Midweek Motif.  And thinking of Susan,  she will be taking a small break from Poets United (and poetry) to finally get the lumbar spine fusion surgery done that she had been contemplating for years.  She expects to be back soon with a new outlook on the world.  As her surgery is this coming week she would appreciate good thoughts and prayers. In Susan's absence, Midweek Motif will continue with Susan's prompts, Sumana's prompts, Sherry's prompts, and (yes) even mine!  Smiles.   Take care of yourself, Susan!

And Rosemary, of course, has another interesting The Living Dead/I wish I'd Written This feature on Friday!  Don't miss this aspect of Poets United.  Stop in on Friday to read and leave a few words.

If you have Facebook, do think about following Poets United on Facebook.  That way you are informed of each new feature.

With no further delay, hope that you will enjoy the Pantry today.  We always enjoy it if you leave  a short comment when you post.  Think about it as having a cup of coffee with friends before beginning the work of the day!  Do be sure to visit the links of others as well.  It is sort of like knocking on the doors of others, I think.  When we leave a comment, we let someone know that we enjoy them in the 'neighborhood.'  And the blogosphere IS a neighborhood, isn't it?

Do have a good week!

  8. Such a touching post - each post dne here is always so interesting and warm. Would really like to participate more often but everytime I fear I don't have the time to comment I refrain from posting. A joy to be here though.

  10. in the last week or two we have had much rain, many storms. i only wish we could tilt the earth's axis but for a moment and poor the standing rain water over to those in the west coast of the United States to squelch the fires and aridity. i also wish the bombs would stop, the wars would cease and the impoverished could be sated. but that's the way i am. have a wonderful sunday mi amigos y amigas

  14. These are amazing....funny how I live almost 5 hours away, but never get downstate much. Guess I'm more of a country girl. I do want to see the Memorial though.

    Beautiful morning but very hot and humid here....not complaining though after our winter! Have a great day everyone and will be reading everyone's poetry later today.

  18. I always think it wondrous how pictures from home always make me smile. These are some lovely shots. ♥

    @Susan, you've been and continue to be in my prayers. I wish this surgery delivers what it has promised and more, and that you get relief from chronic pain.

  19. Thanks for the wonderful photos, Mary. The 9/11 Memorial is amazing and demonstrates the spirit of the American people, who will rise up stronger than before after every attack. Susan, we will be thinking of you and sending healing energy your way. I am heading out at noon today myself, and will have very limited computer access till I return, (the worst thing about going away). Will catch up as I am able. Hope everyone has a great week.

  22. Lovely NY pics.
    Unity is much needed in this world.
    Unity of our thoughts, mind & body is needed too. That's why we need to handle with care.

  24. Mary,

    I enjoyed the photos you have shared of your visit to New York. Very impacting with the 9/11 Memorial tributes. I have yet to visit New York...
