Poetry Pantry #170


                                         








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 Talon, one of our regulars in Poetry Pantry, took and gave us permission to use.  Thanks, Talon.  Your photography is impressive.

I will issue an invitation here to those of you who participate in Poetry Pantry.  If YOU have special photos that you would like me to feature some week, send them to me along with any necessary explanations of the photos.  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!

  4. That barn photo drew me in like a moth to the front porch on a hot July at midnight. I have to get to work and I don't have a poem lined up, but I will be back because this is my favorite place to fill up the tank. Write on, poets. Stay united.

  11. Mary & Poets United Writers,

    I have now posted a poem here, linked to my new Blog ''My Poetic Parlance.'' http://mypoeticparlance.blogspot.co.uk/
    This Blog now replaces all of my other Blogs which I have suspended for now, due to an incidence of plagiarism/ theft of my Blog Ethereal Awakenings, by an unscrupulous hosting company, now seeking a fee from me. All without my permission.
    This new Blog will only be associated with my interaction at Poets United, where there is a friendly and trustworthy supportive community.
    Happy Sunday to all,
    Eileen:)

    1. Sorry this happened with you, Eileen. Glad you didn't let it deter your writing & that you came up with a new blog (and a very nice one at that).

  13. Shy cows. Neat. My poem today was inspired by art by Catrin Welz-Stein, but I can no longer find the image on her sites: a woman between two lacy oak leaves floating down with white dots (I interpreted as snow) onto green grass with red flowers. If you know the piece I mean, please let me know. I'll send a note to her too.

    I'm linking a poem I posted late for Poetry Jam's prompt on "backwards" ... and so I'm sharing it here as well. Happy Autumn!

    P.S. Mary and Sherry, hope it's OK if I add my blog to your blog roll, as I've been participating to Poets United Pantry and Verse First prompts for a while now. It's been fun to meet new poets here. Thanks! :)
