Poetry Pantry #267




Pelicans at the mouth of the 
Fox River, Green Bay, Wisconsin
by Elizabeth Crawford








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

Today we have Elizabeth of Souls Music to thank for the photos.  Very impressive.  Thank you!

I have photos for the next two weeks, but if you have some photos you'd like to share, please send them to me.  Smiles.

Tomorrow Sherry is featuring three poets who have written poems about nature.  They will all be familiar to those of you who participate here.  So be sure to stop back tomorrow!

Did you see Rosemary's Friday feature "I Wish I'd Written This" this past week? This week she shared poems by 6 poets.  At least one of these poets will be familiar to those of you who spend time in the Pantry & Midweek Motif.  If you haven't read the article, please scroll back.

For Midweek Motif this week Sherry is prompting us to write about "Watershed Moments."  We are very happy that Susan has been sharing her writing.  She will be back prompting as soon as she can! We miss you, Susan!

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!  Thank you for making Poets United such a successful site!

  2. Thanks for always being a most welcoming host, Mary. My poem is a tribute to the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

  3. Pelicans at the mouth of the Fox River - an opening line for a poem surely! especially like the flight of the 3 pelicans. Sunday is a meeting of poetical minds - thanks to you :)

  7. Pelicans! The brown ones are my totem birds, but I love these too! Thanks. I'm going to start my morning routine--pray etc, and eat and take a million pills and then rest again. Hopefully feeling awe today.

  8. Fabulous birds to watch Elizabeth....thanks for sharing. We are getting a warm up and they say a warm September. A nice end perhaps to late summer. I'll be around in a little while to read your awesome poems! Hope everyone has a pleasant Sunday.

  19. So lovely to see pelicans. Elizabeth, thank you. You are lucky to be able to see them for real. Here, we have swans on the river, also beautiful. I am, as always, late getting to the Pantry, and am looking forward to diving in. After months of drought, we had a light rain yesterday (not nearly enough), but everything is so refreshed and grateful. Vancouver had a terrible storm yesterday, trees down, traffic gridlocked, Stanley Park shut down, sparks flying everywhere and 400,000 without power. Yoiks.

  20. Glad to know that so many of you share my fascination with the Pelicans. They summer here and nest offshore on an island called, of course, "Pelican Island," which is further out in the Bay. Pelicans are a symbol of buoyancy. They dive deep for nurture and then pop right back up into air and sunlight. A good totem for poets. They often fly in groups and are easy to spot because of the black hem on their otherwise white (or grayish-white) bodies. Thanks for appreciating the photos, and as always, have a wonderful Sunday,

    Elizabeth

  25. A day late, and ---
    I was taking a recert class from the Red Cross on First Aid / CPR / AED
    yesterday so I had little time to play.

    Will still drop around and visit - and return comments and such.
    Hope everyone has a great start to the week.
