Crazy Horse Memorial, South Dakota, in process
since the year 1948 & far from competed.
A non-profit undertaking.

Here is the Crazy Horse Memorial in process.  Check
Wikipedia if you want to see what it will eventually look like.

Wall Drugstore is in Wall, South Dakota. It is much more than
a drug store.  It is a tourist attraction with several stores under
the same roof.  If you drive through South Dakota, it is a must-see!
(Ha, I bought cowboy boots here!)

Greetings, Poets!  

Glad to see each of you here this week. Hope you each had a poetic week & also will share one of your poems here.  It is always fun to get to know you through your poetry; and I hope you feel the same. 

This week I have a few of my own photos taken in South Dakota, USA.  Explanations are beneath each photo. I will issue an invitation here to those of you who participate in Poetry Pantry.  If YOU have special photos that you would like me to feature some week, let me know what kind of photos you have.  There are participants here from many different cities, many different countries.  I think it is great fun to see different areas featured. I am especially interested in scenic views of your area or an area you have visited.  Send inquiries first to letting me know what you have.  I am interested in city or country views - in your home area or places you have traveled.

Anyway, with no further adieu, this is one of my favorite spaces to post poetry each week.  I hope you look forward to it too.  An older one or a new one, it's your choice.

Link your ONE poem.   Then leave a comment below. Then visit other poets.  And I will too.  (If I miss your poem, visit me, and I will visit you... I am like anyone else, appreciating reciprocity.) We ALL like comments, so if you link please DO spend time visiting others.  That is part of the fun as well.  We really like it if you link back to Poets United too, so we spread the Poetry Pantry word in the blogosphere.

Come back a few times on Sunday and Monday to see what's new.  Visit some strangers, and they will become new friends!  Making new friends and reading new poetry, what more could one want?

Also, don't forget to visit Poets United other days of the week.  For example, every Wednesday Kim posts a new "Verse First" prompt.  Hope you will join us there as well!  Sherry Blue Sky does a feature (it varies) on Monday, and Rosemary Nissen-Wade does "I Wish I'd Written This" every Friday!

If you are on Facebook, look for us there as well. Join our site.  It is one more way to stay in touch!

And is the procedure, for those who are new here:  Each Sunday we start a new post with a New Mr. Linky for you. This is so that you can post a link to a poem in your blog. The link will close Monday at 12:00 p.m. (CDT), but you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.



  1. Thanks for sharing the photos, Mary. I have to make it up there myself someday.

  2. Happy Sunday to all! I'm off for a walk in the cold, sunny weather, with bits of snow here and there..
    And thanks for sharing the photos, it's interesting to see it from the eyes of a visitor.

  3. Enjoy the pantry today. There is already a feast of poetry to savor. I will comment when it is a reasonable daytime hour for me. Happy Sunday to you.

  6. Woke up today to the news of the tragic death of Paul Walker. Sometimes life is so strange.

    1. that is rather sad...i knew who it was as soon as you said it...and i had not heard it n furious....and by a car crash no less....

  7. Wall Drugs... :) so many times I have either been in the place or passed it in the truck...

  8. this is thought to be a time of love and light - there is much of both here time and time again - I thank you all - for the love - for the light - for the poetry ...

  9. I watched a show about the Crazy Horse Memorial. It must be something to see in person - even under construction. Looking forward to what I've come to think of as a smorgasbord of poetry. Hope everyone has a lovely Sunday.
