Poetry Pantry #266

Photos of Johnson Canyon - Alberta, Canada
by CC









Good Sunday again, Poets!  Welcome to another Poetry Pantry.

Today we have CC to thank for the photos!  She shared they were all taken while she was hiking near the lower and upper falls in Johnston Canyon in Alberta.  What a wonderful hike that must have been! Beautiful, aren't they?

I am still asking others who post here to share their photos with me, as C.C. did today!

Tomorrow Sherry is doing an update with one of our very loyal participants -- Hank!  I look forward to reading this & am sure many of you will enjoy reading it too!

Did you see Rosemary's Friday feature "The Living Dead?"  This week she shared a wonderful poem by Hillaire Belloc called "The Winged Horse."  Please take a look if you haven't.  Rosemary puts so much research into her articles!

For Midweek Motif this week Sherry is prompting us to write about "the joy of poetry."  And it IS a joy, isn't it?  And good news as far as Susan is concerned.  She is home now and recovering.  We hope she will be back prompting in September.  You might want to check her blog, as she IS writing!

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.   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 having them among us.  The blogosphere IS quite a neighborhood, isn't it?

Do have a good day & a poetic week!

    It feels a bit like fall this morning. There is a nice nip in the air as I drink my coffee and enjoy some reading.

    1. C.C., I am so sorry that I, at first, attributed your wonderful photos to someone whose screen name is similar to yours. I have now corrected it, but still...I am sorry.

    2. No worries at all, Mary. It happens :-) Thanks for hosting and for all the hard work you do here all the time!

  15. C.C., such beautiful photos of a lovely spot. Wow. Mary, thank you for hosting, as always. I am late to the party as usual. It is a perfect late-summer day here, with a hint of fall in the wings. I am thankful to be moving away from the intense heat, as the ground everywhere is lifeless, brown and dead, and the trees are stressed. I hope this fall brings the rain everything needs. I will slowly make the rounds, and will eventually get to you all. I feel like Old Mother Turtle this morning.

    1. Oh, I hope for rain for you too, Sherry. I am just watching news about the wildfires in the Pacific Northwest & know your area is affected by these fires too.

  18. Once again I find myself "bringing up the rear" to use a very old idiom - and will check out posts today and tomorrow. Monday seems to be my "catch-up" day, of late. The rest of the week, I have a lot of visitors dropping by (mostly family - BIG FAMILY) which I love but: there goes the schedule.

    As always, I very much enjoyed today's photos - and also (I've been meaning to do this for a while) I wanted to make a point of thanking those of you (Mary, Sherry and so many others) who contribute so much to Poets United. It is a lovely thing. I'm sure a great deal of poetic inspiration would not see the light of day if all that work hadn't been put into maintaining such an inviting forum for poets. Your efforts are much appreciated. Thank you.
