Frank's Island can be seen in the background
The waves are especially wild and wonderful in wintertime!

This week I am sharing photos that Sherry Blue Sky sent me from Tofino, British Columbia. Beautiful area, isn't it?
Be sure to visit Poets United tomorrow to see what Sherry Blue Sky has planned to share. Will it be a featured poet? A featured blog? Or a featured poem?
Glad to see the turnout for Mid-Week Motif Wednesday continues to be good. We hope to see you this coming week for another challenging prompt by Susan Chast!
And on Friday, remember to see who Rosemary Nissen-Wade is featuring on her "I Wish I Had Written This" or "The Living Dead."
I 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 (after the new year) Susan Chast posts a new "Mid-Week Motif" 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 now...here 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.
This week I talked about the process that use to write poetry. Hope to see some of you there!ReplyDelete
Hope you will visit others who have shared their poetry too, Erin.Delete

Good morning poets. Happy Sunday! Lovely pictures of Tofino :)ReplyDelete
Late again, but very happy to be here. Tofino is a great place to see in the morning over coffee and to share with the friends of poetry. As my leg heals and I pick up more of my regular routine, I am here a little less often. I will stay longer each time, though, reading poems like a new book a week I win by being alive.ReplyDelete
Always glad to see you, Susan. You are not late at all. Hoping the healing is going well....and that you stay longer one way or another anyway. Smiles.Delete
read everyone so far and will be back in the evening to catch up... beautiful sunny day over here... spring in full force... we went for a long walk and i kissed all the flowers on the way...smilesReplyDelete
Oh, Claudia, I am SO jealous that you have flowers already. Sigh.Delete
Sherry, thanks for the photos!ReplyDelete
good day, everyone!
will be back later to read. a long work day awaits. :)
Warm greetings from rainy South Africa. I love the shots of Tofino - wish I could travel there one day.ReplyDelete
Kerry, once I'm back, you have a standing invitation! As do all my poet friends!Delete
Morning, kids. I am very late this morning but will make my way through the pantry as the day goes on..........I offer a peaen on the lovely Ordinary Day this morning!!! I can only imagine how glorious the beach in Tofino is this brilliantly sunny morning. Am standing on tiptoe trying to see over the mountains to my beloved shore.ReplyDelete
Sherry, Tofino is beautiful as you have shown it!! I can definitely see why you love it.Delete
Thank you to Sherry for providing her wonderful views of Tofino. They certainly have whetted my appetite to visit Vancouver BC very soon:)
I am unable to provide an offering to The Pantry this week, but am cerain that inspiration will be following after my sojourn here in Phoenix!!!
Sending best wishes for the week ahead to you all, Eileen :)
Enjoy your time in Phoenix, Eileen. I am sure that Phoenix is an inspiring place to visit indeed! But I understand why you wouldn't be writing while enjoying. Smiles.Delete
Oh no, missed this one! But I'm looking forward to reading all the great poets who didn't :)ReplyDelete
