Poetry Pantry #269

BOTANICAL GARDENS OF GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN

BY ELIZABETH CRAWFORD










Good Sunday, Poets!  Welcome to yet another Poetry Pantry.

Today we have more photos taken by Elizabeth Crawford.  This week's photos were taken at the Botanical Gardens in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  Thanks, Elizabeth for the beautiful pictures.

Please stop back tomorrow, as Sherry Blue Sky is featuring the poem of one of the very active men here at the Pantry and at Midweek Motif.  You've seen him around.  No more clues!  Smiles.

Stop back on Wednesday for Midweek Motif.  We have only a few more weeks before Susan will be back prompting.  (So glad she is back posting!) This week Rosemary is prompting, and I am very excited about that!  Her prompt is  "Let Your Song Be Delicate - or Not. " Take your pick - do some 'delicate' writing, or do its opposite: harsh!  We really look forward to seeing you there.

If you haven't read Rosemary's I Wish I'd Written This, please take a look.  She features the poet Salena Godden & her wonderful  poem "Funny Thing Being a Writer."  I think this is a poem many of us can identify with. 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!

  1. Good morning. I must say that a botanical garden is one of the best places to be. When stranded in alone in a foreign town, I seek out the botanical garden...

  8. All the pictures are wonderful, but I really love the last one. One of these days, I'll plant some succulents in that style *fingers crossed*.

    I'm really excited about the upcoming Wednesday Motif.

    Doing a happy dance to celebrate Susan's recovery and return... and happy Sunday, everyone. ♥

    2. Those succulents grow like CRAZY, one is constantly moving them into bigger pots......maybe give them their own little patch. Smiles.

    4. @Mary, thank you for realizing just how important that post is to me.

      @Sherry, they might take over my living room! Or the terrace... no yard. :-(

      @Susan, you (and your back) are always in my thoughts. ♥

  9. good morning everyone. hope everybody has had a fulfilling and days of just enough.
    in my sumitted piece i'm speaking to those that have always been the strong one's for everybody else. those that have tried to be there for those who've needed an ear or shoulder. yet, sometimes the strong feel as if they're mis understood because they too cry and have heartfelt pain

    1. Your poem had an important message, Marcoantonio!

      Delete
    2. I resonate with this, Marco - I have always been the strong one for everyone else, but since Pup died, I have shed an entire lifetime of tears. Even the strong have limits, LOL. LOVE your beautiful poem!
