World Photographers and Poets Tuesday

Main Street USA ~ Cape Ann MA




Today ArtMuse Dog and I did a photo walk and the photo above is our Main Street looking east with Cape Ann becoming more of a vacation spot. Historically, it had been a major fishing port and the photo below is an Italian groceria that sells wonderful bread. As the sign indicates, it is still the store for 'bread for the fishermen.' We also have haiku for you today and that is below the second photo.

We are linked today with photographers and poets from the around the world:

Our World Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday

They are all very creative and very exciting to see and read. Enjoy.




Virgilios ~ Bread of the Fishermen



The prompt for Tackle It Tuesday was 'holy isle' and below is a very tiny photo. It is located on the Northeast Coast of England on the border of Scotland. Its location reminds me very much of the location of Cape Ann which is an island connected by two bridges. 







haiku

holy isle, island
off England's north coast serene
spirit dwells long shore.
-o-

holy isle could be
Cape Ann off coast of New England
geography close.
-o-

spiritual self
contains holy isle within
spinal fluid meets.
-o-


Wishing you a lovely and healthy week.


Hugs and namaste,

We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day ~ especially, ArtMuse Dog ^_^

  1. Your main street seems a little clogged by vehicles - have been to Holy Island a couple of times - it is a lovely spot indeed.

  19. It looks and sounds beautiful where you live! Fresh handmade bread - yum! There's an island (St Michael's Mount) just off the Cornish coast that part of the day, when the tide's out can be reached by an exposed causeway & the rest of the time only reached by boat - this post made me think of there. Lovely haiku, spiritual & thought provoking.
