we have artists' markets and other events"

evolved and conscious women mayors anywhere"

Good Sunday, poets.   Today we are sharing some photos from Sherry Blue Sky.  As most of you know, she has very recently moved to Tofino........and these photos (with her own words in quotes) are of her new 'digs.'    We will feature more of Sherry's photos next week.  But meanwhile, we at PU are really happy that at last Sherry is back living in her heart's home.

Be sure to scroll back and read Rosemary's "The Living Dead" where she honors Gwen Harwood, a beloved Australian poet in the wake of International Women's Day.

Thanks to those of you who participated in Sumana's Midweek Motif..."Be Bold for Change."  Again, in celebration of International Women's Day.

Monday Sherry has prepared an interview of a poet she hasn't interviewed before.  She's been taking part in Poetry Pantry recently.  Smiles.   Stop back and read the interview.

Wednesday Susan's Midweek Motif will be "The Kindness of Strangers."  Give it some thought before Wednesday, and join in!

With no further delay, let's share poetry. Link your poem below.  Say 'hello' in comments.  Visit the poems of others who have posted.  See you on the trail.


  1. What a wonderful set of pictures.. congratulations of finding your way back to such a beautiful place.

  2. Gorgeous photos, Sherry, wish I was there, with you, to see the true beauty of Tofino, and the surrounding area, that you now call home. Honestly, I haven't decided on a poem that I will be sharing this Sunday, whether, it will be, an acrostic, or my usual style of free verse poetry. Am thinking, the cats should decide this choice for me. Will be back, with the selected poem.

    1. Since, Star was the first, to reach me, am sharing a poem that I wrote, in 2012.

  3. Thanks for sharing Beautiful Tofino with us Sherry. A happy Sunday to you all :)

  4. Happy sunday. Those are some beautiful pictures Sherry! :)

    1. Congrats on another book, are very inspiring, so dedicated to your art. May it sell well. Nice to see you at Poets United.

  8. Lovely pictures! They make me so joyous to see them. Of course it is close to my bedtime now, so I'll look forward to reading most of the poems tomorrow.

  9. Nice to see so many poets & poems. Smiles. We begin daylight saving time today. Y-a-w-n! See you out on the trail.

  10. Beautiful pictures,Sherry. I wish you much happiness in your new home and adventure!

  11. Hi friends, I so love living in a village again. It is just the right size for me. The people here are so CONSCIOUS, and the energy is great. The scenery is spectacular, every day, all the time. Sigh. I am happy. Thanks, Mary, for hosting, as always. Looking forward to some good reading with my morning tea.

  12. Sherry, It looks like you're living in heaven. How can you not be happy there.
    Mary, I'll be back later to read all the wonderful entries. Hope you and all have a great week.

  13. Beauty! So that's what it has been all about: A spirit soaring! The good news is, I am alive, healthy and looking forward to reading today's offerings. The bad news is that I forgot to move my clocks forward and am now at a mad dash to meet the day's obligations in my worship community. So I will see you much later . . .

  14. Love those photos, looks like "home!"

  15. So wonderful to see a slice of home for you, Sherry! Those skies are just spectacular. Wow! I can see why your heart was yearning to go back. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Sunday everyone!

  16. Great images. Happy Sunday to all

  17. Happy weekend tidings! I had to look up Tofino, what a stunning place to live Sherry! I'm so happy for you, you deserve all good things. So pretty!

    I was in Oakland, CA visiting my best friend for 4 days last week. I had a great visit we always have fun. She doesn't live that far away but life is so busy.

    I hope you have a restful weekend! Don't forget to spring forward. Hugs all around!

  18. This place looks like heaven, Sherry. No wonder you want to live there. I am happy for you.

  19. That shot of the eagle is magnificent!
