Riddle Poem 6/23/17

My family and I are traveling this week...and our first day in a new city I couldn't help falling in love with the poetry all around me including a real poetry garden -- which is new to me. We celebrated the almost twelve hours of this Summer Solstice being together discovering a new place...can you guess where we are?

Have lots more poetry fun at the wonderfully creative Heidi at
My Juicy Little Universe


Awwwwwwwwwwwww, couldn't fool you poets! Yes, I'm in Seattle and having a marvelous time with my family....not only do I love these people. I like them.

I've gone a little cuckoo over finding cool words here. Yikes!

  3. I love the mystery. I thought of Seattle's Pike Place Fish market, too. I remember I bought art there years ago. And my stepbrother bought crab legs that my memory tells me were as long as my arm. Surely my memory is exaggerating. I hope. LOL

  4. I need more clues to guess where you are, but I'll offer a contrary suggestion of Portland, ME. We visited the market there long ago.

  5. I am with April and Brenda -- I think this might be Seattle. Hey, I recognize that giant eraser sculpture from our February Found Objects poems in 2016!

  6. Linda, love your poem, and I also love puzzles! I recognized the Claes Oldenburg "Giant Eraser" sculpture, though there are a few of them around. I'm guessing maybe it's out by Seattle too. .
    You'll have to fill us in.

  12. I love how you're talking about the city and using these images that belong to a city. It's such an energetic poem and you could truly feel the hustle and the bustle of it.

  16. You stumped me--but then I scanned through the comments and think you must be in Seattle. Enjoy the long light!

  17. What a fun post! My guess was Seattle too (before I read all the above comments--honest). Enjoy your wanderlust.

  18. Seattle! What a cool city, I've been lucky to visit there many a time - it's about three hours drive away for me. :-)
