Poetry Pantry # 162

My grandfather's (man with white shirt) blacksmith shop - early 1900's



Greetings, Poets!  

Glad to see each of you here this week. Hope you each had a poetic week & also will share one of your poems here.  It is always fun to get to know you through your poetry; and I hope you feel the same. 

This is one of my favorite spaces to post.  I hope you look forward to it too.  

Link your ONE poem.   Then leave a comment below. Then visit other poets.  And I will too.  (If I miss your poem, visit me, and I will visit you... I am like anyone else, appreciating reciprocity.) 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!

    3. Enjoyed your piece really, but I don't mix FB with blogging; so I won't be commenting there. I thought I remembered you having a blog in the past?

  15. Mary, what an INCREDIBLE photo! Astounding how much things have changed since then. I would have loved to have lived then - and maybe I did! It is still morning here, but it looks like many of you must be in afternoon already, I am , as always, way behind. But I will get around to you this morning while I have my coffee. Yippee!

    1. Then I went and added some of the photos I took - only to find that people had already been quick to comment, describing my verses as photos in words! Should I have left it as words only? But now that the pctures are there, I'll leave them. :)
