Poetry Pantry #149





Tawny Owl (Hanstedt, Germany)
 
Greetings, Poets!  
 

I do hope that each one of you had a poetic week, and I hope that you will share one of your poems (old or new) here.. I enjoyed the bird picture I shared last week so much that I looked for another bird photo for this week.  It comes from Wikimedia Commons, my usual public domain source.  Bird photos always make me yearn to take my binoculars out into the woods, find a place to sit, and just wait and hope for interesting birds to pass.  My granddaughter has become quite interested in birds, so perhaps someday this spring we will do that. 

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.   Then visit other poets.  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.

Enjoy!

  1. Ha! I was nearly first again. But then I went back to deliberate on which poem to choose (the latest) and the lovely Hank has beaten me to it. *Smile.*

    Poetry Pantry seems to go up just around the time when I take a break from chores, lateish on a Sunday afternoon, and sit down with coffee and computer.

  4. I was so confused reading the "how-to " with it mentioning Sunday...I was not thinking it was Sunday! It took me a lot of pondering to realize how lost in the week I am. My poem was not written in this state...I promise.

Hi all and Happy Sunday My Internet service is down - I using my Ipjone to post which isn't optimal - love the owl My poem this week is as frequently "wordle word " inspired -I usually write these in one go through and find myself visiting some odd and oft-times unsettling placed - today's offering is no exception - look forward to reading and commenting later when Internet hopefully restored - Happy May to all - please forgive the lack of photo or any inadvertent typos I can barely see this phone screen!

    1. Pearl, I definitely understand the difficulty with the iPhone. I feel exactly the same. You had put in an incorrect link. I fixed your link, but your listing comes a bit further down the line as I had to find your poem on the PU blogroll first. Thank goodness for that.
