Poetry Pantry #268


Florida Photos -
by Sherri Brannan











Good Sunday, Poets!  Welcome to yet another Poetry Pantry.  This is Labor Day weekend in both the United States and Canada.    We are having the last family barbecue of the season on Monday.  I would guess that many of you will be doing the same.

Today we have photos of Florida which were contributed by Sherri Brannon! The clouds are really beautifully photographed, aren't they? Thanks so much, Sherri.

And thinking of Sherri, please stop back tomorrow, as Sherry Blue Sky will be doing an update with Sherri Brannon in her Blog of the Week feature.     I have had a sneak peak at the interview/article, and I know you will enjoy it.  And...if you enjoy Sherri's photos today, the interview includes even more beautiful photography, as well as (of course) poetry!

Stop back on Wednesday for Midweek Motif.  Sumana's prompt is "boredom."  I would guess we all would be able to identify with that sometime.  Susan continues to heal, and I am sure you were as happy as I was to see her at both Poetry Pantry & Midweek Motif this past week.  Hope you will be back soon at Midweek Motif, Susan.

If you haven't read Rosemary's The Living Dead, please take a look.  She features the poet Kenneth Rexroth & his poem "Airs and Angels:  This Night Only."  And, of course, she includes a lot of interesting information about the poet as well.

If you have Facebook, do think about following Poets United on Facebook.  That way you are informed of each new feature.

With no further delay, hope that you will enjoy the Pantry today.  We always enjoy it if you leave  a short comment when you post.   Do be sure to visit the links of others as well.  It is sort of like knocking on the doors of others, I think.  When we leave a comment, we let someone know that we enjoy having them among us.  The blogosphere IS quite a neighborhood, isn't it?

Do have a good day & a poetic week!  Thank you for making Poets United such a successful site!

  2. Sherri's photos are sheer poetry - my offering this week is far less picturesque. Its a great community which I enjoy visiting though frustrating for me as a wordpresser to prove I'm not a robot everytime I want to comment on a blogger's post

    1. If you set up a google account, you can link it to your WP site. You only have to do this once and then as long as you are signed in, you dont have that headache.

      Blogger users can not remove the you are not a robot requirement, so there is nothing they can do about it - other than complain to google.

    1. Really nice framing on that first shot. I think it is my fav.
      Are you on the east or west coast of Florida?
      I lived down there for several years and have traveled all over the state
      at different times. Its a beautiful state.

    2. I'm in Central Florida, near Ocala. I'd love to be on the coast if we could! But we have family here. It is a beautiful place, I agree!

    4. It seems those skies are in control and the land is mere projection. Fine art!

  23. Beautiful photos, Sherri. I live in Florida. It always amazes me how photos seem to capture the true Paradise it can be.

    Just saying hi, today. I might try to read some. Today on my blog, I only mention another poets link up who I admire, so you might want to check her out. Her name is Shadow.

    Have a pleasant holiday.
