POETRY PANTRY #487

Tofino has sunsets spectacular enough to strike you spellbound. The three photos above were taken by my friend, Nancy Powis, who lives on the inlet in Tofino.  The village is on a peninsula - on one side, the wild west coast, on the inlet side, the more placid waters and mudflats. Nancy graciously allowed me to post these beautiful shots. Our writing group has held two writing retreats at Nancy's beautiful home, where the tranquil view out the window inspires our writing. Thank you, Nancy, for these beautiful sunsets - such stunning vistas!

We hope you caught Friday's Moonlight Musings, a discussion on the importance of "Flow" in poetry, written by Rosemary's guest presenter, Australian poet Sarah Temporal. It was an interesting article.

On Monday, we will enjoy poems of peace, written by Susan Chast, Sumana Roy and Gillena Cox. We hope you enjoy these meditations on peace: what it is and what it isn't. On Wednesday, Sumana's prompt at Midweek Motif will be: Dance. That might get our toes - and pens - to tapping!

As it is Sunday, you know the drill: keep the coffee hot, and coming. Let's dive into the Pantry and enjoy all that is shared. Leave us a few words to tell us how you are and don't forget to visit your fellow poets. We all love comments. Smiles.

  3. Sherry thank your friend for those beautiful pictures of Toffino. I can see why you're so happy there - the physical environment, but also because you've made new friends and you're engaged with what you love most - writing.
    I hope everyone has a happy Sunday.

  6. What incredible photos, Sherry, especially the middle one--those surreal colors! I bet the muse goes wild in such a place.

    And you are so right, my pen is doing all kinds of acrobatics thinking of Sumana's prompt. I won't post until later in the week, but... dance I will!

    Happiest Sunday, everyone.
