This totem was carved and gifted to the Village of Tofino by local
Nuu chah nulth carver Joe David, who said he wanted the town
to have the face of his people represented locally. The totem honours
Nuu chah nulth chiefs. The child on the bottom represents
hope for the future. I visit it often.

As you can see, I live surrounded by beauty here in Tofino. I am very grateful. I missed being immersed in nature's wildness the years I was away.
To all of our friends in the United States, we hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving. It has been a good week at Poets United, and we look forward to another. On Monday, we are featuring a poet from India in our Life of a Poet series. You won't want to miss it. On Wednesday, Sumana will offer the prompt: Morning Poem for our creative sensibilities. Check back on Friday to see what Rosemary has cooked up for us. It is always interesting and inspiring.
Pour yourselves a second cup of coffee and let's settle in to reading some fine poetry. Link your poem and enjoy the offerings of your fellow poets. I am always so grateful to be part of this community of poets, sprinkling our days with poetry. Thank you all for being here, and for keeping on coming back!
