Poetry Pantry #309


Nature Views of Japan
by Totomai Martinez







Good Sunday Morning, Poetic Friends!  First of all, Happy Independence Day (tomorrow really) to  those of you who are in the United States.  Secondly, I hope you will enjoy Totomai's photos which I have shared today.   Pssst....Sherry has also prepared an update article on Totomai which will be featured here at Poets United tomorrow.  Please return and find out what he has been up to since last he was featured.

Wednesday Susan's Midweek Motif will be "compromise."  Not always easy to compromise, but a necessary skill to learn in life.  Let's write!

Did you read yesterday's "The Living Dead" post by Rosemary.  She features a poem by Augustine of Hippo, also known as St.Augustine.  Truly a fascinating poem written by a very complex man. We usually do not think of St. Augustine as a poet, do we?  But...take a look.

Now let's share poetry.  Link your one poem below.  Stop in and say hello to the community.  And visit the poems of others who have shared. Enjoy, and have a good week!

    Its been four amazing days in K.L so far :D the people here are very nice and friendly. There are three races residing here namely Malays, Chinese and Indians. The weather here is 36 degrees celsius..and oh my god the time difference is too much compared to EST… local time here is (GMT+8) which means its exactly 16:56 PM right now.

    Anyways, hope you guys are having an amazing day :D sharing my poem "Purple Passion" Thank you Mary for opening the doors to yet another gorgeous pantry and Totomai for the fabulous pictures :D

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

    3. Hang in there…Rain will come soon. Jump into the pool or head for the beach - off-shore on an island like Redang or Tioman is awesome.

      Welcome to Malaysia Sanaa!

  9. Good morning again, Friends! Really, as I look at Totomai's FIRST photo, it seems it almost looks like fireworks...though I know it is not. Cool to think that it does though in the light of tomorrow's holiday here. I am enjoying reading what you write & also wonderful to experience the reciprocity.

  10. Such an array of natural beauty from Japan.
    I'm sharing a poem I wrote earlier this week. I've had something of a lull in my writing but I'm trying to push through it.

  14. Happy 4th everyone. Canada day was on the 1st and was quite wonderful. We saw our hip, cool prime minister dancing at the big free concert they had in Ottawa.

    Totomai, your photos as always are amazing. Kids, totomai recently had his work admired at a very high level. We will talk about that in his feature tomorrow. He is a star on the rise and one day we will say we knew him when...........

    2. Happy belated Canada Day Sherry!

      I used to dance on the frozen Rideau River Sherry in Ottawa, to Bryan Adams and Luba no less. I am sure it was awesome to see your cool and handsome prime minister dancing away. Like a certain 60s wild woman I know...

  17. Hello everyone! What wonderful photos of Japan to start the day with. Can't wait to read about another PU member.

    Today I share a year old poem about somewhere I used to buy fireworks at. They are still legal to buy in Indiana too.

    Getting ready to go riding! Have a great 4th to those in the USA!

    Love, Bekkie
