Photos of Maracas Beach, Trinidad
Good morning, poets! This week we have photographs shared by Gillena. Thank you for sharing these beautiful and peaceful scenes, my friend, and also for your continuing support of Poets United.
It was fun to read the poetry that so many of you shared this past week for Susan's Midweek Motif 'Blooms.' And, hope that many of you are thinking ahead for Sumana's prompt next Wednesday - 'Appreciation.' One thing is sure -- we at Poets United appreciate all of you who take part in the various features at our site each week!
Monday Sherry has another wonderful interview with one of our newer poets who lives in what I consider a very idyllic place. I confess I read this interview ahead of time (smiles) and know that after his interview goes live I will have a few questions for him! I hope one of these weeks he can be convinced to share photos for the Pantry too.
I cannot help but remember that this day, September 11, is the 15th anniversary of the Twin Towers Tragedy on 9/11/2001. I will always remember that day... I was in Hawaii at the time, and it was the day before scheduled to fly home, and (of course) after 9/11 all flights were grounded for a few days. So it was a few days before returning home was possible. I remember my fear of this 9 hour flight. I also remember the absolute SILENCE of that flight, as everyone on it, I am sure, had the same fears. Anyway, lest we forget this tragedy of such a great magnitude, a moment of silence here for all who lost their lives, all who lost family and friends, all who sacrificed, and all who still suffer....
With no delay, let's share some poetry. Link your poem below. Stop in to the "comments" and say hi. And enjoy visiting the poems of others throughout Sunday and Monday as well in the spirit of community. I will see you on the trail!
