Poetry Pantry #287


Photos of Mazatlan, Mexico
Taken by Mary











Greetings, Friends!    I was looking through photos on my computer this week & came upon photos I took of a trip to Mazatlan, Mexico, some years ago. Mazatlan really is a beautiful city, and I am glad that I had an opportunity to experience it!  Hope that those I have chosen give you a bit of the flavor of the city.

We had another good week at Poets United.  Lots of good poems resulted from Sumana's prompt of COURAGE at Midweek Motif!  This week Sumana's prompt will be IDENTITY.  So think ahead if you wish!

If you have not read Rosemary's Moonlight Musings in which she discusses her poetic journey and asks the readers about theirs, please scroll back and read it.  It is truly interesting to read HER journey, and also to read the comments others have made about their own journeys.

Tomorrow Sherry has another fascinating interview for us with someone whose initials are MZ!  Smiles.  Sherry had interviewed her a while back, but has come up with a great update, plus some of MZ's very unique poetry.

We all hope that Susan is accomplishing a lot at her retreat, and, of course, we are glad when she pops in here periodically.

With no further delay, let's share our poetry.  Use Mr. Linky below to link your poem.  Add a comment to the 'comments' below; and then take a look around to see what others have shared!  I hope I will meet all of you on the trail......   Have a great week.

  6. lovely warm colours for contrast with the season here Mary - especially love the 3rd from the top (if only Mexico was a less violent place to visit - have friends in gated communities)
    good to be back in the pantry though it was a dverse discipline that gave me something to chew on since inspiration in hibernation it seems

  16. Mary, you are such a good host. Thank you for all these years of Sunday mornings! My weeks, as they come and go, are all marked by Poets United's features. One by one, they pass by, with such amazing poetry to enrich our lives. Your photos of Mazatlan are wonderful and give me a small glimpse of what it must be like to be there. I was in Tiajuana, once, for a couple of hours. Only one photo survives, and the memory of a desperate mother, a baby on her back, who approached and asked me for money for milk for her baby which, of course, I gave.
