It is always enjoyable for me to get to know you through your poetry; and I hope you feel the same. Admittedly, I personally appreciate those with whom there is a feeling of reciprocity, which makes for a feeling of community. I think we ALL tend to visit (after a while) people with whom we reciprocate. I just don't GET people who link and enjoy visits, yet don't bother to visit others -- even those who spent time making comments on their poetry.
This week I am sharing photos taken by Kim Talon. About these photos Kim says, "Two are from The Bruce Peninsula and three from autumnal wanderings around the Waterloo Region where I live here in southern, Ontario. The flowerpot picture is from a trip to Flowerpot Island in Tobermory at the Fathom Five National Marine Park of Canada. Just a glorious place where the soft rock is eroded with the passage of time and they call the rock formations flowerpots. Really neat." Thank you so much, Kim!
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 friends, a very happy Sunday to you all...awesome photos Kim...ReplyDelete

So glad you have returned and thank you so much, Surabhi!Delete
Hello and good morning from cold NY State. Really love the autumn pictures Kim, and only a few hours North of me. Absolutely stunning. Oh to revisit autumn would be nice...it has flown from here and no more leaves.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Donna. We had our first snow on Hallowe'en night. Ugh! Way too soon. October was a write-off this year. Maybe November will be uncharacteristically gorgeous for us. :)Delete
Thanks Kim for the lovely pictures ~ I love the autumn leaves ~ Yesterday, we had flurries already, the first sign that we are on winter ~ReplyDelete
Happy Sunday to all ~
Thank you, Grace. We had the snow, too, yesterday. I don't think I'm mentally prepared yet. :)Delete
Good morning... off to church and making family rounds. Will stop into the Pantry for delightful treats in reading as soon as I get back.ReplyDelete
Glad you are feeling better, my friend. Still waiting for that update!Delete

glad to be back posting. will read later, working day beckons. :)ReplyDelete
thanks for sharing these amazing photos!
You're welcome. Hope work zips nicely along for you!Delete
Kim's photography takes me home--these are not mere snapshots but art! I'm late, and will be later reading. You'd think with the Fall back of time, I would be early. But, truly, there is so little control and normalcy in a poet's life!ReplyDelete
Susan that is such a beautiful compliment. Thank you so much!Delete
Happy All-Souls day to you all!!! Stop by my blog to read and comment on my poem "Blessed"!!! thank you and shine on!!!ReplyDelete
and to you as well...& i did...and hopefully you find the time to do the same...Delete
Happy Sunday, everyone! I can use the term Sunday properly - we finally have sunshine after days of cloud and rain. Fresh coffee made, I'm ready to indulge in some first rate poetry, enjoying the extra hour which will quickly get swallowed up. :)ReplyDelete
Kim, your photos are STUNNING. I love the robin. I have a small bird-poem percolating this morning, and loved seeing her, at her bath. Mary, thanks for the reminder to turn the clock back - I just gained an hour. Ready to dive in to the Pantry, but it may take me a while to make my way around. I am still couch-bound and Chocolat is on the telly this morning....need I say more? LOL.ReplyDelete
Sherry, thank you. I can't wait to read your bird poem. I'm a huge fan of yours and of birds. :)Delete
nice pics KIm....
will be around visiting/returning comments...
Thanks, Brian. :)ReplyDelete
classic Kim Talon, those photos - gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Nice to see a full pantry! I'll be making my rounds tonight and tomorrow. Great photos, too!ReplyDelete
I missed the cut-off time. Oh well. Looking forward to reading these this evening.ReplyDelete
Kim I have always appreciated the angle that you shoot from - it's crisp, personal and professional.ReplyDelete
