Photos of Ireland (2)
By Steve King
Impossible to resist the invitation of so friendly a landlord!
The pulpit at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
A statue in St. Stephen’s Green: The Fates, weaving the fabric of the thread
of human destiny. A gift from the German People. Wagner, anyone?
The Martello Tower at Sandycove, just south of Dublin.
Site of the opening scene of Ulysses.
Atop the Tower:
I was the only true Stephen around.
Stately plump Mulligan nowhere was found.
A very nice German lady was kind enough to take the picture.
Even a canopy of umbrellas wasn’t enough to keep me dry
during the daily Dublin afternoon drizzle.
Greetings, Friends. Today we have a second series of photos on Ireland. I enjoyed not only Steve's photos but also his comments on his photos! I know you will too.
Last week while the Pantry was active, I was not able to participate fully as I was vacationing in Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii. However, I did return visits to all of the poets who visited the poem I shared in the Pantry. Those of you who visited my poem did indeed see a response. (And I thank you for that!) I will be more pro-active THIS week....but (for me) it was heartening to see just who would visit me first.
I hope you have had a chance to read Rosemary's feature "I Wish I'd Written This" this week. She features a poem by Myron Lysenko which I think will resonate with anyone who has known someone with either Alzheimers or dementia. Really a remarkable poem, and Rosemary adds such a lot of detail to her articles. Scroll back!
Thanks to those of you who participated in Susan's Midweek Motif this past week - "Conquest!" And this next week Susan's Midweek will be "Blooms" used as a noun! I am looking forward to writing to that one. Hope you are too.
And this Monday Sherry Blue Sky features a poet who has been sharing poetry with us for a long, long time and has not yet been featured. She is a "Floridian." Can you guess? Return tomorrow, and you will see the interview. Really, isn't Sherry amazing with her interviews? Sometimes I am in awe.
Oh, and where was I last week during the time the Pantry was 'live'? I was spending time in Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii (USA). I will be sharing some photos in a few weeks. Oh, and if any of you have photos that you would like to share in the Pantry, please let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org. I would LOVE to feature them.
With no further delay, let's share poetry. Share your link with "Mr. Linky." Comment below. And visit the poems of others who have shared. Looking forward to reading what you have written.
