This week I am sharing Loredana Donovan's photos of Paestum ruins in Salerno, Italy. According to Wikipedia, the ruins of Paestum are notable for their three ancient Greek temples which are in a good state of preservation. The oldest of these temples, the First Temple of Hera (pictured third from top) was built in 550 B.C. Check Wikipedia for detailed information. Looks like a most fascinating place. If anyone else has photos from their area or interesting photos from somewhere you have visited, I'd like to feature them! Let me know.
Be sure to visit Poets United Monday 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 there is always a great turn-out for Midweek Motif. We hope to see you this coming week for another challenging prompt by Susan Chast! (And, ha, perhaps many of you have noticed that if you look at one week's prompt Susan gives a clue about the following week's prompt as well, so you can get a head start.)
And on Friday, remember to see who Rosemary Nissen-Wade features on "I Wish I Had Written This" or "The Living Dead."
Again: 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.
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?
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.

Hello everyone! I too like R.K. Garon missed last week due to being occupied with finals for my online class. But anyway, my piece is about the murders of innocent Christian children in the MIddle East. My heart cries so much for them. :*(ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your photos Loredana ~ Wishing you all Happy Sunday ~ReplyDelete
Greetings to all of you! Loredana, your photos are beautiful. Thank you for sharing them. Wishing you all a happy Sunday!ReplyDelete
What beautiful photos, Loredana. Thanks so much. The quality of the light looks so beautiful in Italy, any time I watch a movie or see photos like yours that have Italy as a setting. I am off to Tofino later this morning, kids, and will try to make my way around before I go. If I miss anyone it will be Tuesday before I can begin catching up. Have a great Sunday everyone.ReplyDelete

Wonderful photos Loredana...wow, I'm soaking them up. I would most definitely like to visit Salerno. Thank you for bringing it to us! I always enjoy your photography immensely.
One note: my blog name is Poet Laundry (not Poetry Laundry) not sure if anyone else has that for a blog name but I didn't want anyone to think I was stealing their name with my poem attached.
Ok, it is fixed. Smiles.Delete
