Poetry Pantry #401

Another beautiful beach (not Waikiki)

This beach is sometimes used for snorkeling. Sigh.
Unfortunately ALL of the coral is dead, so there
is not much to see.  Coral all around the world is dying,
thanks to humans!




Greetings, Friends.  I hope you have enjoyed the photos above.  I just got back from some time on the island of Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands.  We stayed right at Waikiki Beach, which is absolutely beautiful.

Thanks to Sherry for taking care of the Pantry last week.  And, scroll one post back and see Sherry's I Wish I Had Written This post from Friday.  Just as Rosemary most often features Australian poets, Sherry has featured a Canadian poet who wrote a wonderful poem called "The Language of Birds."  Do take a look.

On Monday Sherry is featuring poetry from three of our male poets.  I think you will enjoy these poems.

Wednesday Susan's Midweek Motif is "Barter / Trade."  Feel free to get a head start on your writing if you feel inspired.

Now with no further delay, let's share poetry.  Link your one poe

  14. I'm suffering a serious case of beach jealousy, Mary. Those photos are glorious! I'm enjoying the spring, but now I want summer, too.

    Happiest Sunday, everyone.

    And welcome back, Mary.
