Poetry Pantry #168


                                                 
Ptuj, Slovenia

Ptuj, Slovenia


Ptuj Tower




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 photos that Natasa Dolenc shared from her country of Slovenia.  These photos were taken in Ptuj, the oldest city in Slovenia.  The population is about 23000 people. There is evidence that Ptuj was settled as far back as the Stone Age.   Next week I will be sharing a few more photos of Natasa's area.    Thank you, Natasa!!

 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!

  7. Good morning to all - Anyone know why when I've changed the title of my poem from a working title (in this case from "Three Little Kittens - yuck to "The Unblown Dandelion" the original working tile still appears in the link? Not the grandest problem in the Universe but just a teeny bewilderment.

    Enjoy the day... Back to read and comment :)

  9. I put an unfinished poem in the pantry this time, the fourth and last in the Portrait of Peace series I wrote yesterday. What is Peace given terrorism? Can those also serve who gather without thinking? I think so, yes.

    It's a lovely Sunday for an Equinox. I'm having an adventure today-- going to check out Peace Pilgrim Park and services. Going to donate shoes. See the links at http://susanspoetry.blogspot.com/2013/09/portrait-of-peace-3.html

  12. The leaves are beginning to change into bright colors here in New Hampshire; their final statement in celebration of Summer. Their falling leaves set the table...to welcome Winter.
    I have set a plate Slovenia. :-)

  20. Morning, kids. I am sick as a dog this weekend but am enjoying all the goodies in the Pantry! PT I cant figure out how to leave a message on your site, but I so enjoyed your poem to your daughter - especially the closing lines which speak of such a close loving bond.
