Photos of West Coast of Sweden - by Bjorn Rudberg
Happy Sunday, Poetic Friends.....
It feels to me like a good day for Poetry to me. I look forward to reading what people share this week.
Thanks to Bjorn Rudberg for the photos this week! About them he has written, " Scandinavia have been covered with ice until about 10 000 years ago, and therefore the rocks have been polished by glaciers. The shores of the Swedish west coast is often barren with gneiss or granite shores. During summer these shore are often a favorite place to go swimming for those of us that do not like sand inside our clothes. The pictures here are taken close to where my summer house is, a fishing village named Gullholmen. When you walk on windward side facing the open sea, you are often alone, and you can be alone with the sea. It’s fascinating sometimes to just and watch the waves crushing at the shore. Sunny days the rock are warm and you can fall asleep listening to the sound of waves. Summer evenings are long, and when the sun sets you are ready to go to bed. " Really looks like a beautiful area, Bjorn. I especially like the 'hidden paths.'
Hope everyone caught Rosemary Nissen-Wade's article on Rosemary Nissen-Wade's feature of Muriel Rukeyser's poem 'Reading Time: 1 Minute 26 Seconds.' If you haven't read it, there is still time. Be sure to watch for Sherry Blue Sky's interview tomorrow. I won't tell you who it is (smiles), but it is a poet who often writes about nature. You will enjoy the interview! And then, you will have a wonderful opportunity this week to write to one of Susan Chast's prompts. This next Wednesday it is, as she announced, "Mother Tongue." We will be writing about language...plan ahead of you wish, and join the fun.
With no further delay, let's share poetry. Link your ONE poem below. Stop in and leave a comment. And be sure to visit as many poems as possible. If you are an early poster, come back a few times to catch the later arrivals. Enjoy.
