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 (for the second week) photos that Natasa Dolenc shared from her country of Slovenia.  These photos are of  Lake Cerknica Thank you, Natasa!! The phenomenon of intermittent (disappearing) Lake Cerknica has become famous worldwide as an area where cattle can graze, farmers can plow fields, catch fish and drive boats in the same place. When the lake is full, it is the largest lake in Slovenia, but then it dries up and reveals its extensive farming land. Through all seasons it shows completely different faces and to truly feel what Lake Cerknica is, you have to come back many times.  It really looks like a beautiful lake!

 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!

  21. Love Natasa's photos. Cerknica is also a fabulous place for birdwatching... I wrote a poem about corncrakes which are still to be heard around there in the spring and summer. Thanks SO much for posting the images!

  26. Mary,

    I am late to visit The Pantry today, but hope that my seasonal offering will be acceptable.
    I shall reciprocate towards visiting other Blogs, between now and Tuesday.
    Sometimes The Pantry is a lonely place after Sunday closing, for those who post poems later in the day:)
