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 Loredana Donovan shared of New York City!  I quite enjoyed them and hope you will enjoy them too.

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, let me know what kind of photos you have.  I am especially interested in scenic views of your area or an area you have visited.  Send inquiries first 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!

  1. Wonderful photos of sites that are quite familiar to me -- I'm a New Yorker. :)

    By the way, last week's Mr. Linky seems to be on top of this week's Mr. Linky.

    Happy Sunday!

  18. Let's get together in NYC! An impromptu poetry reading outside St. John the Divine? A deli, sushi bar or tea room? Mmm. NYC is less than 2 hours from Philadelphia. It is a pleasant thought to start out this week.

  21. Vandana, I couldn't post a comment at your blog, the little widgets kept overriding me and opened a new window as I was trying to click the submit button, tried 3 times. FYI

    Loved your poem!

  22. R.K. Garon, your wordpress wont let me comment on your site, but.....Oh my God. You have written everything I feel - I always say if the top echelon were taxed proportionate to their income, no corporate or ruling class loopholes or bailouts, all economy woes would be solved........aint gonna happen, my friend. We'll all die munching on saltines first...........
