The Tofino Botanical Gardens,
twelve acres of beauty, old-growth
and gardens on the West Coast
of Vancouver Island, Canada
I love the peaceful Beings
that welcome us to the gardens
One of my favourite structures
This wooden heron is a favourite of mine.
I would love to have him on my deck. Smiles.
I almost expect them to burst into song!
The Mudflats, when the tide is far out.
When the tide is in, this is all water.
This is a stopping point for annual bird migrations,
a great place to watch birds making their pilgrimages.
A Tolkien tree
Thank you, Trees,
for Breathing Peace on me!
We have a good week coming up at Poets United. On Monday, we are chatting with Ayala Zarfjian, whose book Second Chances ~ Poetry from a Sun-Kissed Life was recently published by Golden Dragonfly Press.
On Wednesday, Sumana's Midweek Motif prompt will be Light. I love the sound of this prompt! We need all the light we can get. Did you catch Rosemary's The Living Dead feature on Friday? Do scroll back, if you missed it. The featured poet is the amazing Federico Garcia Lorca, such an intriguing poet.
And next Friday, I am pleased and proud to be featuring another West Coast poet, a friend of mine, who wrote a book of poems to honour his sister-in-law, one of Canada's murdered and missing women.
And now, it's time to share some poetry. Link your poem, old or new, leave us a comment to let us know how you're doing, and do visit your fellow poets. I so enjoy reading poetry on Sunday morning. A wonderfully reflective way to end - or begin - another week.
