Poetry Pantry #263

Photos of Devon, England

Church on Solar Eclipse Day in Devon




Good Sunday, Poets!

Hope each one of you is enjoying a good weekend. We are having a good stretch of weather here.  Not too hot and not too cold.  Just perfect.  This weather could last forever.

Thanks to Jae Rose for her photos today!!  I really like the photo of the church at the time of the solar eclipse!  Really, I am looking for photos, so if YOU have some to share on Sunday, please do let me know.

Wasn't Rosemary's new feature, Moonlight Musings: What Price Poetry? wonderful? Rosemary definitely is a well-seasoned poet, and we are fortunate to have her write articles for us.  Please take a look at this one if you have not seen it already!

Sherry has a wonderful interview prepared for Monday and is also pinch-hitting for Susan this week at Midweek Motif.  Her prompt is "Saying the Names With Love."  You can prepare a little for it by thinking of the names of places you love.  I am sure you all have at least one.

And this Friday, we have a real surprise for you.  Sumana will be sharing a favorite poet of hers for The Living Dead!  Can anyone guess who this poet is?  Wonderful article - stay tuned.

I heard very briefly from Susan.  She said her progress is slow & she has pain, of course.  Do continue to keep her in your thoughts.

If you have Facebook, do think about following Poets United on Facebook.  That way you are informed of each new feature.

With no further delay, hope that you will enjoy the Pantry today.  We always enjoy it if you leave  a short comment when you post.   Do be sure to visit the links of others as well.  It is sort of like knocking on the doors of others, I think.  When we leave a comment, we let someone know that we enjoy having them among us.  The blogosphere IS quite a neighborhood, isn't it?

Do have a good week!

  13. Good morning, shiny poets! Jae Rose, your photos are intriguing. You see with an artist's eye. I love the bottom photo, looking up at that big old tree - and how cool to snap a rainbow through your window. Today will be at my desk as I have Much To Do (as always). Am looking forward to some good reading. Here the heat is beastly. Jasmine and I hide indoors.
