Greetings, Poets!  


Glad to see each of you here this week.  We had a great Poetry Pantry last week, and I hope this week we have the same kind of group.  It is always enjoyable for me to get to know you through your poetry; and I hope you feel the same.  Admittedly, I personally appreciate those with whom there is a feeling of reciprocity, which makes for a feeling of community.  I think we ALL tend to visit (after a while) people with whom we reciprocate.

This week I am featuring some photos taken by Kenia Kris -  a poet from Sao Paulo, Brazil.  Wonderful photos, Kenia.  Thank you.

Be sure to visit Poets United tomorrow to see what Sherry Blue Sky  has planned.  

Glad to see the great turnout  for  the first Mid-Week Motif last Wednesday.  We hope to see you again this coming week for another challenging prompt by Susan Chast!

And on Friday, remember to see who Rosemary Nissen-Wade is featuring on her I Wish I Had Written This!

I 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.  There are participants here from many different cities, many different countries.  I think it is great fun to see different areas featured. I am especially interested in scenic views of your area or an area you have visited.  Send inquiries first to dixibear@aol.com letting me know what you have.  I am interested in city or country views - in your home area or places you have traveled.

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 (after the new year) Susan Chast posts a new "Mid-Week Motif" 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!

  3. Good morning, everyone! Happy Sunday! Mary, thanks for featuring my photos. Just a correction, I don't actually live in São Paulo, too big a city to me, I learned it when I visited. :)

    Looking forward to reading your poets. <3

  8. Thanks Kenia for the photos. You're a wonderful addition to the Poet party here. I enjoy your poetry and your comments. Welcome welcome.
    In case anyone notices I've linked today as Stormcat and Snowflake. She has agreed to collaborate on my Via Solaris project as the artist/photographer. I am more excited about this than a kid at Christmas. I'll try and get her to comment here so all of you can get to know her too but right now she's in the South Pacific and contact with her is limited.
    Happy Sunday

  15. I made it here! Good scenes and good company. I'll try to get around to everyone. I'm naturally thinking of the surprise of falling today since I had one off a kitchen step stool yesterday that knocked my shoes off. Nothing is broken. I have a banged up knee and a very achy body. I'm moving slowly and taking pain meds that make me groggy. And in a few days it will be a memory like winter.
