Poetry Pantry #166







                                                 
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 week I am sharing two photos from the Gower Peninsula of Wales.  The Gower Peninsula covers about 70 square miles (180 square kilometers).  It is known for its coastline, and it is an area popular with walkers, outdoor enthusiasts in general, and surfers.  As with last week's photos, these were not taken by me but by a friend who wishes to remain anonymous.  I will issue an invitation here to those of you who participate in Poetry Pantry.  If YOU have a special photo that you would like me to feature some week, send it to me along with an explanation of the photo.  Also, let me know if you wish your name mentioned or not. Send to dixibear@aol.com.

Anyway, with no further adieu, this is one of my favorite spaces to post poetry each week.  I hope you look forward to it too.  An older one or a new one, it's your choice.

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. Gorgeous photos! Happy Sunday! I wrote this poem for Theme Thursday, but didn't see many poets over there. It needs cutting, I think. I'm working on tying for the g-man's 55 and will let you know if I ever get there.

  5. Hello everyone,

    My second visit here - after a busy summer, with a new book due for release any day now... Not long back from and inspiring and spiritually refreshing trip to Marrakech, which made a real difference and deffo firing on full batteries again now! This poem has only just been posted on my site this week and have some time now to treat myself to having a good look round here - maybe might send in a photo or too, when I've got them sorted. Happy Sunday to all... With Best Wishes Scott www.scotthastie.com

  16. Mary,

    A gradual return to writing after hand surgery,and from my (extended) holiday location. My stay prolonged by a car breakdown, en route through France. Bad timing, as my grandson has been admitted to hospital back at home in the UK.
    I shall visit Blogs, as soon as possible:)
