Poetry Pantry - # 148




Mallard Duck with Ducklings - UK




Greetings, Poets! Hope you all have had a good week.

At last the weather is more spring-like in my part of the world.  If you are in the northern hemisphere, I hope it is for you too.  And in the southern, you are heading onward into autumn.  I liked the picture above that I found in the public domain.  Spring is the season for birth and also of rebirth.  I hope it is also the season in which lots of wonderful poems are born!

This is one of my favorite spaces to post during the poetic week.   I hope you look forward to it too.  Link your ONE poem.   If you are involved with NaPoWriMo, feel free to share one of your poems here. Then visit other poets.  If you never visit other poets, eventually people will pass by your blog as well.  And I will too.  We ALL like comments, so if you link please DO spend time visiting others.  That is part of the fun as well.  We really like it if you link back to Poets United too, so we spread the Poetry Pantry word in the blogosphere.

Come back a few times on Sunday and Monday to see what's new.  Visit some strangers, and they will become new friends!  Making new friends and reading new poetry, what more could one want?

Also, don't forget to visit Poets United other days of the week.  For example, every Wednesday Kim posts a new "Verse First" prompt.  Hope you will join us there as well!  Sherry Blue Sky does a feature (it varies) on Monday, and Rosemary Nissen-Wade does "I Wish I'd Written This" every Friday!

If you are on Facebook, look for us there as well. Join our site.  It is one more way to stay in touch!

And now...here is the procedure, for those who are new here:  Each Sunday we start a new post with a New Mr. Linky for you. This is so that you can post a link to a poem in your blog. The link will close Monday at 12:00 p.m. (CDT), but you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.

  1. Good Sunday morning, Poets. Sorry about the technical glitch & the late appearance of the Pantry. But hope that doesn't interfere with your enjoyment of poetic company today.

  2. Happy Sunday to all. The picture is just amazing. Its gives a cozy feeling to see the ducklings snuggling under their mother. Nature indeed is beautiful. So, taking a hint from this picture, here comes my composition on " Splendid Nature".

    Thanks.

  3. I see from your comments in the introduction that people are still linking and running! :) May we all get better and better at visiting other poets' blogs and leaving at least a brief comment.

  11. My poem today is more a verbatim transcription of a conversation that struck me as profound. I look forward to comments on it and will try to comment on as many as I can -- have lots of chores to do on this beautiful day which means I probably won't get much work done.

  12. Good morning all~
    Here's a little tale about vampires. I added a reading of it which I have never done before, kind of unnerving.

  13. IThanks for sharing a picture which heralds springtime for all. Here is a poem heralding that light which seems to transform everything - even a dark room.

  16. Hi guys - I'm not sure but since last week (think this has a great deal to do with the rest of my question!) when I posted a poem with the word "infidel" in the title - all messages coming from Poets United are going directly to SPAM! Anyone out there who can help me restore Poets United messages to my regular inbox?

  18. There is a particular wild mushroom commonly called "Hen of the woods" and when i first glanced at this picture I thought "Why would she be posting a picture of a duck next to a big mushroom?" Had to have a laugh at myself when I realized that the hen of the woods was a pile of baby ducks.
