Poetry Pantry #271

Photos by De Jackson

North Shore of Lake Tahoe, Nevada


Breathing in Blue

Love on the Rocks


Shhhhhh

Balance




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

Today we have photos taken by De Jackson!  Stop back tomorrow and learn more about the photographer, as her blog is being featured for Sherry's Blog of the Week!  Shhhh...don't tell anyone I told.  (Smiles.)

And on Wednesday for Midweek Motif, we welcome Susan Back.  Yeahhh!!  Her prompt this week is a well-timed one, I think.  It is "Recovery: love is healing."

Take a look back one day to Rosemary's I Wish I'd Written This, where she shares "Carpe Diem" by Agnellius and Daniel Serebryany.  Rosemary prepares such informative and interesting articles each week.

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!  See you as I make my rounds!  And I hope to see you at the other Poets United features this week.

    1. James, I am jealous of your weather change. Here in Southern Nevada, it is still over 100 at the peak of day. Sigh. I loved your piece. Enjoy your Netflix!

    1. Thank ya, ma'am. That one was my muse today.
      Speaking of muses, X needs one of your word lists. ;)

    2. If he wants one, he will ask. And so will you. :) I'm always happy to make them. But I don't think his lack of inspiration has anything to do with not feeling moved by these stunning photos; I'm pretty sure he's just really sad about his friend dying. It's so hard to write when your heart is crushed like that.

    3. Awww. I'm SO sorry to hear this. Sending all prayers and good thoughts.

  15. Good Morning, all. Mary, thank you for hosting. I love De's photos - all spectacular. I especially like the one called Balance, a feat of gravity, balancing rocks in that way. I come upon them here along the river and lake, sometimes, each passerby adding his or her own little stack. I am looking forward to some good reading this morning, and an otherwise leisurely Sunday. Yay! Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday.

    1. Good morning, Sherry. :)
      I always love when I stumble upon these kind of "balance rocks." It's as though someone has left a gift behind, waiting for me. And YES, a progressive work of art, added to by others.

  19. Ooops. Mary, I just noticed your header. Our favorite part of the Northshore of Lake Tahoe is actually in Nevada. ;) Sorry for any confusion.

  20. Scrumptious photos, De. Even here you excel with less is more. Love the pine needles. I put some in a poem earlier today. I've been distracted by my Quaker meeting today and then coming home and hanging on images of the Pope's visit. I'll visit everyone by the end of tomorrow. LOVE it here, the warmth of home!
