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 Stockholm, Sweden. Stockholm is the capital of Sweden. It is also the most populous city on the Scandinavian peninsula. It is built on 14 islands connected by 57 bridges. Stockholm is sometimes referred to as the Venice of the north. The first photo is of Strandvägen, Swedish for "Shore Street." It is one of the most prestigious addresses in town. The second and third photo are of Stockholm City Hall, built in 1923, and one of the country’s leading examples of national romanticism in architecture. The great Nobel banquet is held there once a year. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
