Poetry Pantry - #150






Greetings, Poets!  

Spring & New Life (Goose and goslings)

Wasn't last week's Mother's Day Pantry delightful?  So many poignant entries.  I suppose that was really Poetry Pantry #150, but since it was a special edition and not numbered I have decided to label THIS Pantry Poetry Pantry - #150.   That means the Pantry (as it exists now) has been going for almost three years.   Oh, if you enjoyed the Mother's Day Pantry, we will give you a heads up that in June for Father's Day there will be a Father's Day edition.  So...plan ahead, if you wish.


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.. 

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. I do like geese too...from a distance. These were in a nearby park I went to with granddaughter. Truly cannot get too close or they will attack!

  13. Don't EVER mess with a mother goose. I've seen them attacking people for getting too close to a nest - they're excellent mothers and protectors. That makes this a pretty fitting follow-up to your Mother's Day post.

    1. You are right about the geese. I keep my distance, especially when they have young with them. My granddaugher was riding her bike past this scene. I told her to keep moving...fast as possible...they were giving her the evil eye.
