Greetings, Poets!


Glad to see each of you here this week for Poetry Pantry  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 have shared photos of Kona, Hawaii.

Be sure to visit Poets United tomorrow to see what Sherry Blue Sky  has planned to share.  Will it be a featured poet?  A featured blog?  Or a featured poem?

Glad to see the turnout  for  Mid-Week Motif Wednesday continues to be good.  We hope to see you 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" or "The Living Dead."

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?

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.

  2. It is Freedom Day, here in South Africa so I am extending my best wishes to the rest of the world! Enjoy the day wherever you are, and celebrate the notion of personal and civic freedom.

    I am sharing the final chapter of my on-going series inspired by ancient myth.

  6. Hi there Mary And greetings to all… Lovely dreamy pictures of Hawaii. Here’s my new and somewhat reflective piece for April, prompted by Easter and some lovely Spring sunshine here in the South of England… Look forward to catching up with everyone’s work later… With Best Wishes Scott www.scotthastie.com p.s.

  18. This my first time to raid the poetry pantry. Not wanting to be rude I left a jar of lemon curd for all to enjoy. (smiles)

    Oh I apologize in advance, my blogger blog is not not my active one but many times, like this time, I can not leave a direct url. This means you have to chase me down a bit. So no pressure if you are not up for it. Cheers!

  19. Mary,

    A necessary period of time away from writing. My return is a measured one at first:)
