Poetry Pantry #415

Seven Bridges Trail
Grant Park
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Yes, there really ARE seven bridges!

Part of the Trail

Trail ended at the shores of Lake Michigan. Lots of locks
attached to the chain fence here.  Forever love?

Really very much like an ocean -- but VERY VERY cold water

Some people DID swim though!

Good morning, Poets.  Hope you are having a good Sunday.  This week I am sharing a few photos from a walk I took this week not too far from my area.  It really was a nice day for a walk, and the beach was peaceful.  Lake Michigan is too cold for serious swimming, but some people do take a quick dip.  The waves are ocean-like really.  Click on photos to make them larger if you wish.

Thanks to those who took part in one or more of the Poets United features this past week.  Without your participation, where would we be?

If you have not read Rosemary's "Moonlight Musing" about Poetry Addiction,  take a look back.  Lots to contemplate in this article. 

Monday Sherry is featuring the works of three poets who have written on a very tragic and sad situation which has been in the news these past days.  Such good poems, as well as some heartfelt discussion,  you won't want to miss.

Susan has a very timely topic for us to write on for Midweek Motif:  National Flags.  Will be interesting to read what people come up with.

I do like the timeliness of what is posted on our site.   I really appreciate all that Sherry, Susan, Rosemary, and Sumana do...and also appreciate each of you poets!

Without delay, let's share poetry.  Link your one poem below.  Stop in to say hello in the comments.  Visit the poems of others who link.  See you on the trail.


  1. Thank you for hosting - Sundays would not be the same without the chance to gather and read though I first have to go the gym and move a muscle or two - back later!
    p.s. Have switched to a new blog - could you add me here please :)

  2. p.s. forgot to say thank you for the photo too - love bridges so 7 would be a treat - and lucky number for me too

  3. Great to see all of you today! Looking forward to reading your poetry.

  4. Wow its Sunday August 12th!!!! Have a good day my poet friends

    much love...

  5. Mary, thanks a million for taking us on tour. I love, love, love bridges and large bodies of water, too. And these are precious.

    Today, I liked something a tad wild, but... some days the muse just feels like that. And we must let her feel her ink, don't we?

    Happiest Sunday, everyone. I shall make myself something warm and yummy, then I shall be back to delight in your words.

  6. I LOVE these pictures, Mary, and your narrative about them. I've a busy day--meeting, business meeting, poetry cafe--but I'll check in and read later and all week!

  7. Good day, everyone!
    Mary, thank you for sharing the photos! i see locks attached to our bridges here too, but the authorities remove them rather promptly. they called it vandalism. :)

  8. What a beautiful huge lake; it dies look like an ocean. The trail and bridges would be wonderful to walk through. Thanks for the photos and for hosting, Mary. Without you where would we be? Smiles.

  9. Love the tour! And thanks for hosting. A pleasure to take part-as always.

  10. The pics look fabulous!
    Have a great week :)

  11. Sorry, a bit belated to say great pictures, but they are. I love bridges too. Show us more any time you like!
